Re: MYSTERY SOLVED: 3WEie and Gabie throw coins into turbinies for good luck

Re: Atlas 767, Houston

I did briefly see ‘something’ in terms of a flash or trail.

I cannot tell if this is “an airplane simply diving with airfoils working well” or “something that was formerly an airplane that is tumbling” (or some other variation).
Or... a meteor?

I find it disconcerting that one of the most important aspects of this story is being grossly underreported: the fact that a number of lobsters apparently are going to be able to celebrate one more Christmas than they otherwise would have.
