I have been known here in the U.S. when I see or hear something that might be a meteor (usually it isn't) do something along those lines. I have never seen anything in the league of that scale though. At best I have seen shooting stars. Oh and I do it in such a way to avoid danger to myself and others.
It makes me wonder the odds of a few mile across space rock hit hitting Earth and if governments should invest more in tracking these rocks.
