I wonder if it was a companion of the huge fireball that slammed into Michigan.

I didn't hear about that.

Well, checking into some posts about it, I am thinking not. The meteorite/meteor (if was that latter) I saw was in the sky right around 6:30 or just after that.

Two hours time zone difference means that yours was around 8:30 EST, right? Companions in space aren't necessarily all that close together, 15 minutes separation seems plausible to me.

I knew I didn't know anything about companion fireballs/meteorites, etc., but I didn't realize I knew so little about Michigan as well. My first thought and assumption was that it was on Central Time.

Whatever the case, what I saw was cool, if not as impressive as the fireball in some of the videos posted online.

I don't really know anything about companions, either, I'm just speculating.

My three closest friends my freshman year in college were from MI, IL, and AL. It seemed weird that the one from MI was the only one on eastern time.
