Star really falls on Alabama

NASA cameras caught an actual meteor above Alabama. The 20-pound rock was first photographed at about 50 miles high and burned up at about 20 miles above the ground. This NASA photo shows the fireball in the bottom right of the frame. Another fine example of life imitating art.
