    Anyone see the massive meteor..........

    streaking out of the NE @ 730-8 PM last night.

    I was driving from dropping CJ off after Globe and just happened to look up at the right time. The thing was by far the largest and most intense "shooting star' I have ever seen. It dissapered over the horizon headed for Mexico.

    Just after that a large bobcat slinked across the road in front of me.

    Louis,

    I apparently missed the meteor, but does it count that I was seeing stars for part of the day after several of the major endo's I did on Pinal Mountain?

    Missed the bobcat too, but are you sure he wasn't ambling rather than slinking? It was getting dark so you probably couldn't be sure.

    Yeah, a "meteor." That's what it was. Or a weather balloon. Nothing to see here, return to your homes.

    Awesome seeing y'all again in Globe!

    .....ambling or perhaps just moseying. What ever it was it was a nice and relaxed kitty as it slowly crossed the Equestrian Trail.

    The next thing I can remember, after the ambling kitty, was calling my wife from the Golder Ranch conveniance store in my birthday suit and wondering where I had been the last six hours. Perhaps this explains my flaming flatuance this morning or maybe it was the green chili burrito I had in Winkleman.

    I hoped somene else had seen the meteor, it was friggin huge. The bikers in the Golder ranch parking lot were to busy playing grab ass to see it.

    Not huge, not a meteor, but

    Missed your meteor, but a couple of comets are visible to the west right now, too. Even Golder Ranch parking lot grabassers could see one of these.

    And, as a biologist, its my expert opinion that bobcats in general are most likely to slink, rather than mosey.
