Huge Meteor Seen In The Southwest U.S. **UPDATED**

Reports just coming in on my scanner from Police and news crews.

This is probably from the Leonids Shower which occurs around this time of year.

CORRECTION: The people at the Griffith Park Observatory report that it was from the Southern Taurids, which is associated with the Comet Encke.

More at the L.A. Times website.



I'd fire up my FlexRadio Systems SDR and listen on 6 Meters for some pings, but I'm either too tired, or just lazy tonight.......

  2. If you find one it can be sort of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
