Vindicated!

Last night, very shortly after Mary and I went to bed, the strangest thing happened. I suppose her eyes were closed, because only I saw it. There is a window in our bedroom, and for about two seconds, it got so bright outside. Like, we're talking noon-day bright. It totally freaked me out! My conversation with Mary went something like this...

Me: WHOA! What the heck was that?!

Mary (sleepy): What was what?

Me: You didn't see that bright light outside?!

Mary: uhh... no.

Me: That was SO bright! What could that have been?!

Mary: Babe, it was probably just someone's headlights.

Me: We're on the 3rd floor! People's headlights don't come through our window! Besides, that was way brighter than headlights...

Mary: I'm sure it was just headlights.

Me: I wanna look out the window... (walks over to the window and peers through the blinds... everything looks normal now.) I don't know what that could've been.

Mary (laughing): Ok babe...

Me: Don't laugh at me... I saw something... that was so weird.

Mary: Ok.



Well, today I saw THIS on KSL.com. A meteor! That's what it was! The story says people reported seeing it from Southern Utah all the way up into Idaho. The video is cool -- several people's surveillance cameras caught it on tape. Just look how bright that is! Headlights... *pshhht*

See, Mary? I'm not crazy.
