  • Keeley...Who knows why our officials do anything at all?? Maybe to reassure people everything is fine, despite junk falling from space and being called meteorites.

  • They do not have to photoshop it out. Just as OP said, NASA generated this picture. It is not an actual photo.

  • This is disgusting. I heard that the Earth is spinning thousands of miles per hour. They have to be spinning at the same speed. So if it went slower all the trash would fall out of the atmosphere. GROSSS...

  • You made me hopeful, Michigan-Mom. I was like, "Isn't there anymore gorgeous places out there anymore?" I know Bali and the Hawaiian Islands are gorgeous, even though I haven't been there yet, just seen pictures. But, I wanna see some beauty, I don't wanna have to fear seeing trash fall out of the sky. Nasty.
