For those that missed it… there was a bright flash in the sky visible across the southern U.S. last night all the way from Oklahoma to North Carolina around 8:50 p.m. CST. So far, no really plausible explanation. But, I just received this from Bill Cooke of Marshall Space Flight Center’s Space Environments Team in Huntsville…

“Was apparently very energetic – have a confirmed detection from an infrasound station in Canada, and are working out the energy. Another station in the eastern US is being polled to see if we can triangulate a location.

Stay tuned…


So… the bottom line is that we still don’t know what it was, but some very smart people with NASA are working on it. Stay tuned…
