Guest858 (guest):Went to get a smoke right before "V" came on TV. Really scared the heck out of me to see a huge bright flash in the sky. I live in Pearl River Mississippi.

Guest370 (guest):What I saw last night before 9 p.m. from Battles Wharf, Alabama could best be described as a single shot "roman candle" firework.Greenish and very bright with trailing sparks. That's what it appeared to be when it kept going - then I realized it was a HUGE meteor.

(guest): I was walking with my husband last night in biloxi, ms around 8:45pm. I saw something that looked like a firework falling above the rooftop. I pointed it out to my husband just as it went behind the roofs. Then there was a huge flash that looked like lightening. So awesome!

Sherry Spruill Young: So I'm wondering, are ALL of the reports from the Southern US last night from a single event, or were there 2 events?

Sherry Spruill Young: I've seen numerous reports that a meteor struck near Poteau, OK,which is about 150 miles NNW of me,and also the MS event, which is about 150 miles ESE of me.

Sherry Spruill Young: Yet all of the 100 or so residents of the community in which I live heard the boom. It rattled windows and shook homes. Having grown up in south Texas, I'm familiar with sonic booms, and that's the best way I can describe what I heard.

Bill McKinney: IF someone has a small private plane I would be happy to fly Poteau Mountain and find the meteorite crater. At the present time Poteau Mountain has snow on it from top to bottom. Poteau Mountain runs from Heavner, OK to North of Waldron, AR. The Mountain is about 40 miles long and goes from about 380 feet to 2,600 ft. in elevation and it runs west to east. The slopes are steep and the AR side is a Wilderness Area with only one road on top.
