A fireball, meteor or shooting star was spotted streaking across the skies of San Francisco on Friday, February 15, 2013, seen as far north as Fairfield, California -- a locale where this Cleveland Pop Culture Examiner used to reside.
"What are the odds of three cosmic events like this happening on the same day -- with two of them being visible to the naked eye and one being the size of half of a football field?" asked one Cleveland-area woman.
Indeed, searches asking if these asteroids, fireballs and Russian meteorite explosions have biblical implications are coming into Google in the wake of these odd events.
YouTube videos like this one of the California 2013 fireball are racking up the views, with more than 120,000 views in the 13 hours since the video was uploaded.
"Driving Southbound 280 in San Francisco Bay Area and we see a bright blue shooting star (meteor) fly across towards the Peninsula," reads the description of the video published on February 15, 2013, to YouTube. "Looked amazing in person! Thought it was a meteor like Russia for a second."
In the most popular video of the California meteor, a man's voice can be heard saying, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa" as the fireball streaks across the Bay Area sky, and a woman's voice asks, "What was that?"
