The Denver area was treated to a pretty spectacular light show early this morning. Let me give you a little background.
Last month the European COROT space telescope was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on a Russian SL-4 launch vehicle.
Well, this morning, the Soyuz booster (or at least part of it) re-entered the atmosphere over the northern Rockies streaking southward across the sky as is broke up into smaller pieces. There are rumors that pieces may have struck the ground near Riverton, WY.
But what drives me nuts is listening to this IDIOT meteorologist at FOX31 in Denver trying to explain to the viewing audience what they are seeing.
Among the highlights; "it's from an extinct constellation." Question from news anchor: "Why does it just fizzle away, the way we're going to see it fizzle?" Answer: "uh, I don't know, uh, they die, they lose that light..."
Jesus H. Fucking Christ in a chicken basket!!! How the fuck do these asshammers get on TV?!? They need to strip this idiot bastard of the title meteorologist and just start calling him the weather guy.
New Rule: If you don't have any idea what you are talking about, just shut the fuck up!
