She should win some kind of prize for being a meteorologist and having a meteor show up during her meteorology report.

The Meta-Meteo.

A friend and I were sitting around drinking beers when we saw something like this, except it just.. stood still.. for at least five seconds and then went "woosh" in a different direction and disappeared. We both sort of did that Mr. Ed reaction when the town drunk hears the horse talk (we weren't that drunk.) Both of us spend a lot of time in nature but had never seen anything like it, and we were convinced it was a UFO, or like some sort of low-flying drone/satellite/something, we'd never seen a meteor behave like that. But it turns out other people saw the meteor too, and it has something to do with the science-y stuff, like how the moon's bigger towards the horizon, like fish in an aquarium, etc etc. but for a brief moment, I think we both felt a bit more like Mulders and a bit less like Scullys.

I don't think the moon is bigger towards the horizon, it only looks bigger because you have points of reference (re: buildings, terrain, and trees) in your visual field to compare it to when its low, whereas, when its high in the sky, it's in a large expanse of "nothing" so it looks smaller.

Sasazuka is correct. The moon only APPEARS to be larger towards the horizon because you have points of reference like buildings and trees that make it seem larger. Try putting your thumb in the way of the moon when it's high in the sky and when it's near the horizon. You'll see the moon isn't any larger.

It's called "The Moon Illusion," and it's one of the few things I remember from a college psych course I took.

Tres interestings. But that doesn't explain our UFO then.. Uh oh.

There's a trick where if you look at the moon upside down (like between your legs) this illusion doesn't work

If a meteor is glowing green, it may mean that it contains nickel.

Or maybe it's like the object that the hick played by Stephen King found in CREEPSHOW. Anyone in the Montreal area should be on the lookout for people covered in mysterious vegetation.

^ Green could also indicate the presence of copper.

That whole segment in Creepshow went from funny to gut-wrenchingly depressing so quickly.

Whoever posted this forgot to pause the video to show the reporter's Reptilian eyeseams.

I love the comments.

"It's a UFO."
"It's a meteor, not a flying saucer."

Note: The guy getting mad has loads of other posts TOTALLY believing in flying saucers.

It's very obviously a dud.
