It's a "shooting star" that was big and dramatic in the daytime, whose shock wave shattered windows and hurt people. That's news.
ETA: Having no link to the contrary, I thought bigdaddy was referring to the thread topic, so that's what I was talking about. The Bay Area fireball didn't make my local news, although dramatic falling stars in my area have my local broadcasts before.
SOORY FOR THE CONFUSION! I was watching the nightly news and there was no link.
The weather channel is the only one I could find...
The Russian one is serious, this California one is a joke to scare stupid people.
And I've been tired, so otherwise I would have fixed this sooner.
