Saw a fireball late last night. Going to check and see if anyone else has reported it.

Did you know you can report and track fireballs (very bright meteors that break up or explode) on the website of the American Meteor Society? If enough people in different places file reports it's possible to determine the altitude and actual flight path of the meteor:

Yes, there turned out to be only four reports -- I thought there would be more in that populated region.

Here's a big one the other day from the Arkansas/Missouri border, with 40 reports:

Quick List

• Dec 21-22 - Usrid meteor shower peak (10-30 meteors per hour)
• Jan 1-2 - 2018's Perigee Full Moon
• Jan 3-4 - Quadrantid meteor shower peak (short peak of up to 120 meteors per hour)
• Jan 30-31 - Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse (Eclipse is in the AM in Canada)*
• Jan 7 to March 17 - Several planetary conjunctions, including a persistent planetary alignment
• Early Feb and early March - The Zodiacal Light is visible in the western sky after twilight

Obviously, ymmv depending on where you reside and cloud cover etc...

*The path of totality is through parts of Canada and the Northern USA for those of you who happen to reside there. For our international members, there are usually great pics online of such events.
