In reality...

Explanation: The brilliant fireball meteor captured in this snapshot was a startling (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap081011.html) visitor to Tuesday evening's twilight skies over the city of Groningen. In fact, sightings of the meteor (http://nineplanets.org/meteorites.html), as bright as the Full Moon, were widely reported (http://www.scibuff.com/2009/10/13/extremely-bright-fireball-seen-over-the-netherlands/) throughout the Netherlands and Germany at approximately 17:00 UT. Accompanied by sonic booms and rumbling sounds, the meteor was seen to break up into bright fragments, eventually leaving a persistent smoke-like trail (http://forum.astronomie.de/phpapps/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/652419/gonew/1/Bolide_Rauchspur_13_10_09#UNREAD). Even though there are bright fireball meteors (http://www.amsmeteors.org/fireball/faqf.html) in planet Earth's atmosphere every day, sightings of them (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap010728.html) are relatively rare because they more often occur over oceans and uninhabited areas.


[... but I thought it might have been an announcement of some sort, perhaps about Obama's Peace Prize]

1. It's morning in America
2. O say can you see

There was a bright fireball over an urban center on Oct 17, early evening, too. North America I think somewhere.
