Palo Alto Police Department
Did you see a "fireball" in the sky or hear a boom tonight around 8 p.m.?
Our 24-hour dispatch center received a handful of calls about it, and initial news reports indicate that it could have been a fireball produced by a meteor as it crossed above the Bay Area. Regardless of what it might have been, we have not received any reports of damage in Palo Alto.
The news channel pages on facebook are posting similar. Friend PAPD facebook page, they give useful information.
Wow--thanks very much for this!
KGO radio Facebook page says:
Yes, it was a meteor.
No, it's not the the apocalypse.
Yes, you have to go to work tomorrow.
"Not the apocalypse?" Surely you jest!
Just watching the news and people's photos of the fireball. Mother Nature is pretty damn awe inspiring.
