RemarksI was pleased to see it. I am a very early riser. I had never seen a \"falling star\" before, any where near that big \'ol one I saw this morning. I was immediately reminded of the ones I saw on tv of big notable fire balls.I\'d love to know feedback if anyone else saw it. 4:00am is approximate time, may have been 20 minutes earlier or later.
