PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Many South Floridians reported seeing a flare-like object in the sky Sunday night, and one person may have captured it on video.

The U.S. Coast Guard's command received several reports of a possible meteor shower at about 7:30 p.m. from Jacksonville to Key West.

Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Sabrina Laberdesque told NBC in Miami that officers could not confirm nor deny whether the sight was a meteor shower.

According to, the Coast Guard sent out a helicopter to check out a report of a flare near the MacArthur Causeway in Miami, but found nothing there.

Dr. Stephen Schiff, president of the Astronomical Society of the Palm Beaches, said meteor showers aren't rare. What's rare is that we're noticing them.

"For the first time people are going outside, away from the bright light-polluted areas. They're going down to the sea shores and they're seeing meteors streak across the sky," Schiff said. "Now this happens 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. But for the first time, people are looking up."

On Friday, a meteor that fell in Russia injured more than 1,100 people.

    May I remind you of the recent "PUSSY RIOT" episode to "PROVE TO YOU" that bad mouthing people, can result in "jail time" still to this day in RUSSIA, even and specially if APPEALS to a "heavenly personage" are made, after all that is "clearly trying to pit religion against politics" something that all "RUSSIAN CZARS" are very "wary of", understandably so!

    I guess those are "soundless" meteor showers, since we did not want to scare the "jeebies" out of the US, but yes those are "celestial events" happening both to US and Russia, and the only reason they get "shot at" more closely in Russia, is because Russia has a history of "bad mouthing JEWS" and telling everyone that JEWS ARE EVIL and seeking to take over the world, and someone the "KING OF THE UNIVERSE" being a JEW and all, he might have taken that a BIT PERSONAL? OH YES MR PUTIN, REVIEW THE BOOK BY ONE OF YOUR PARISIAN AMBASSADORS CALLED:

    "THE PROTOCOL OF THE LEARNED ELERS IN ZION", clearly that was "released by a russian Czar" and was not at all "written by JEWS" but by an "EVIL CONSPIRACY" that in turn was "supported" by the RUSSIAN NOBILITY, and therefore I conclude it was indeed the very cause of TROTZKY accepting the call of another "conspirator" known as KAISER FRIEDRICH WILHELM, to "assassinate" the Czar known as the Romanov Clan and the entire "MONARCHY", meaning "man, woman and even Anastasia, were murdered in cold blood!

    That may be just a speculation, but may be a good one, after all, if you "badmouth the relatives" of MR PUTIN, don't you think you might get in trouble with the RUSSIAN OLIGARCHY? MOST LIKELY!
