Nothing over CUba, but there was a small fireball over the SF Bay area last night. Nothing to worry about.

these happen all the time, i'm sure everyone here was sitting in their living room or something when there was suddenly a borderline flash of light and then a loud bang? could be power transformer down the block blowing off, could have been a rock from space. it's part of nature as Doc described, and thanks as always for the info. honestly I had more faith in our tracking abilities, but this is even more reason to start expanding to other world cause sooner or later one a tad bigger than a Dragon launch vehicle will show up...

This one turned out to be a hoax - a bit of me-too-ism on the part of the Cubans.

I suspect we'll be hearing of several me-too events in the next few days.

Source for that? I knew from the start it was, but I was waiting to see confirmation.

An early email from an astronomer, but now that's being called into question at his end too. Russian media is running the story and some video (some videos are also popping up on YouTube.)

Looks like the date of that video is circa 2006. I have yet to see any conclusive proof that anything even happened. No solid testimony, no solid videos or pictures. I'd still call this one a hoax.

Hmmmm perhaps so, it is Russian media and they can be a bit creative - like the comments about their meteorite being a US weapons test :rofl:
