We caught a glimpse of this while walking the dog last night, and then we heard the boom in the distance, weren't sure what the latter was at the time. Pretty cool, though!

I was just getting into my car on Middlefield Rd across from Fandango Pizza, south of Midtown, Palo Alto when I a heard strange sound, looked up and saw a burning object descending to the east. My field of view was toward the northeast. The view lasted for less than 2 seconds before the flame extinguished. The time and date was between 19:30 and 20:00 on Wednesday, 17 OCT 2012, around the same time as the above report.

At 7 48 I received a call. A friend I know well was seated on teh front steps in Professorville, facing west,
Down on his luck, a professional some of you know, his wife is ill and far away, he has no regular job, and is out of money.
A christian man, with alifetime of work, he asked God for a sign, some sign how to go on. Earlier in the day, we had talked about yet another person.
I opined, sometimes, I just talk and listen to the person, put a hand on their shoulder, like this, and ask. "Where do you see God in all of this? Where would you like to see God in all of this?"
My friend asked for a sign. Then -- some SOME reason perhaps outside our OWN reason - - the grat "flaming ball" came over head,"throwing sparks"
He was stunned. ANd called me. Happy.
One thing you might do, I said, is continue the dialogue.
SO, that is how I experienced this event, and how my friend did.
I am now going for a hike in the Martinez Hills with my infra red heat detector and magnetic compass!!!
