>>> we have no pictures to show you of what happened in colorado but a lot of witnesses. a meteor screamed across the daytime sky trailing a ball of fire right above where hundreds of firefighters were at work on a huge forest fire . it was a big enough event to stop all flights into and out of the area for a time as a precaution.
>>> and last night here we urged you to grab the family, grab the kids, grab somebody and go outside on a cloudless night away from any lights to see the international space station fly overhead. at 16 orbits a day, it will get to wherever you are eventually and in the next few days east coasters are going to get a good, bright view of the passing over faster than any plane across the sky. well, we've already heard from one viewer. a nice woman named becky, who writes, last night after you reported about being able to view the iss in many parts of the u.s., i did my homework, found on the nasa website when and where to look, called my neighbors and dragged sleepy husbands out to our fields to get a first-hand look while fighting off an army of hungry mosquitos but exactly on time. we were absolutely thrilled to be treated to a spectacular show of the iss streaking across the evening sky. thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and sense of wonder. we do live in an amazing world. well, becky, thank you. look at our website for when the space station will be passing over where you live.
