>>> concert goers in argentina over the weekend would have been forgiven for thinks it was part of a pyrotechnics show. there it was. until they realized it was not. in the distance a bright streak before lighting up the sky, a brilliant meteor exploding over the earth. astronomers guess it was about a foot and a half wide traveling 180,000 miles an hour. a lot of this kind of thing going on lately.
