    About 15 minutes I'm sitting on my computer in the basement and my window well lit up. I'm thinking WTF, someone is in my backyard and stuck a flashlight in my window well. I woke up my son, let my two big dogs out the back to chase whoever away. The dogs came back like no big deal. Five minutes later, me and my son are discussing whether I was seeing things when we felt and heard a big rumble. Freaked out now, we decide to go back into the basement. A few minutes later, my daughter who lives about an hour away said they just saw night turn into day from inside her apartment. They went outside and some people said it must have been an asteroid. Holy cow! Going by that rumble, I hope it hit out in the middle of nowhere!

    Leonid meteor shower! Rare and unique for Nov 17th, 18th, 19th.
    Stars’ and constellations they are all a part of our lives! We live in universe and leonid meteor shower is something unique and rare to happen. It is said that it will be at its peak on nov 17th and can be watched around the world from Nov 13th to 20th.

    The best view can be seen from Asia specially China and Indonesia. Sky-watchers in North America can expect to see up to 30 meteors hourly tonight as the annual Leonid meteor shower peaks in the wee hours of Tuesday, Nov. 17. Earth will cross the first meteor-producing stream on this date starting at around 1 a.m. PST, experts predict.

    I wonder how big it would have had to have been to make the rumble like it did and turn night into day? Did we experience a sonic boom type thing? Five minutes later?

    A fast moving meteor lit up the night skies over most of Utah just after midnight Wednesday.

    KSL News has been receiving hundreds of calls from southern Utah to southern Idaho. People are reporting a flash so bright it lit up the entire sky for a couple of seconds. Some people are also reporting a slight rumbling sound a few second after the flash.

    Ok, this is going to be very weird but, up here, past Park City and in the mountains I had the same thing happen. It freaked me out. The light was so bright in my living room I jumped up to look and find out what the hell. The light was so bright and it "passed over" my house. It didn't just go off and on. It lit up the outside so brightly I could see across the river.

    I did not notice a sound but soon after the light I fell asleep. Was still wondering what the hell it was when I read this.

    SuziQ I think this happened later than your light but I can't say for sure. AND it may be a strange coincidence.

    Why do I hear the Twilight Zone theme music playing in my head?

    Edited to add I only read the first post and didn't read the rest of the thread cuz I think the meteor light fried my brain.

    Tricia, you should go read the comments on KSL. You and I can relate to them. Some people looked for a mushroom cloud after the flash. I'm jealous of everyone who saw more than me. I just saw enough to make me think some perv was in the backyard shining a flashlight down my window well.

    I wonder if ****** saw it also?

    I'm jealous. The Leonoid meteor shower is awesome if you are in a place to see it. The middle of NYC is not the place.

    You should go out into your backyard tonight SuziQ and see if you see any more.

    I might have to do that. I've stayed up all night watching the Persid/persed? showers. I never watched for them until I moved to where I'm at now. L.A. and Salt Lake City have too much light pollution. I've seen a couple of big ones out here. But nothing like last night.
