Wow, that is amazing. History repeating itself.

I did a presentation on Thursday on the Geminid meteor shower and when
looking up meteors found the following.

It is a long link thanks to going to Google, so it might be easier to go
to Googe videos, type in meteor shower and it is the first site on the
list. It appears to actually have been January 4, 2007 from Colorado, a
Quadrantid. I think this is the same that is further down the list as a
news report from a Denver TV station (same date).

My gut feeling is that it is an incoming ex-satellite and not a fireball.

first one:
