Hi all.

Here is a news that is worth taking a notice in. Some of those located
in California might have recored this fireball on there seismometers
without noticeing.

CALIFORNIA FIREBALL: A remarkable fireball streaked over southern
Califonia on Dec. 27th around 1:50 am Pacific time. "It was as if
someone had set off a rescue flare that instantly bathed the countryside
in whitish blue-green light," reports Grant Bentley of Bishop, CA. "At
one point, the path of the meteor went behind a cirrus-stratus cloud
that it backlit in snowy green light. After a brilliant show of less
than three seconds, it was gone without a trace. This was easily the
most massive object I have ever seen burning up as it entered the
Earth's atmosphere." Readers, if you witnessed or photographed this
event, please submit a report.
