This year there are increasing numbers of citizen journalist and eye-witness reports of large fireballs streaking across the skies, similar to the huge one which exploded over Russia earlier this year. I created this page to make a record of these reports. Earth is always subject to random meteors and burning meteorites, but since 2012 the fireballs are getting larger, more dramatic, and more frequent. Are these events instances where comet debris is being captured by the earth’s gravity? Is comet Ison the culprit?
