I love how some people are extremely terrified over it, but then again it was REALLY bright. Pretty awesome. I love stuff like this. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that's the brightest meteor I've ever seen. It was lit up like day for over a full second! Really cool video.

It was as big as a wife? Wow!

I've seen some video and it was indeed impressive. Also impressive was the apparent debris cloud pictures at dawn! (and even the following dusk in Denver! see link at spaceweather.com)
