Leonid Meteor Shower: The Sky is Falling

We're in the middle of the Leonid Meteor Shower and here's video evidence captured from Hailey, Idaho's Friedman Airport runway camera of a meteor the size of an oven erupting in the atmosphere at 80,000 miles per hour at 12:02 am, Mountain Time Wednesday morning.

According to the article in the Idaho Mountain Express, remnants struck the ground in northern Nevada and the fireball was likely visible from several Western states. Amazing.
