Talk:Bright object falls from sky over northwest United States

There are no discussions on this page.

I personally witnessed the falling object from a friend's house in Portland, Oregon. It started as a spot in the sky, about the brightness of Jupiter, and developed into a brilliant blue-green color of much greater brightness with a long yellowish tail. Quite a sight! — Buckwad 07:37, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Buckwad, how about changing the following paragraph:

The object began as a small white dot roughly the brightness of a planet, and quickly became a brilliant blue-green color with a long spark-like tail of yellow specks. Two flashes of white light were observed as the object neared the Earth.

to read as follows:

"The object began as a small white dot roughly the brightness of a planet, and quickly became a brilliant blue-green color with a long spark-like tail of yellow specks. Two flashes of white light were observed as the object neared the Earth," reported Wikinews contributor Buckwad.

If you agree with this change, feel free to make it yourself, or let me know and I will do it for you.
After this is done, I'll go look for the "original reporting" tag to post it at the bottom of the article. — DV 08:12, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
How about that. The original reporting tag is named "Original reporting". — DV 08:15, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Okay, done. I also already added the original reporting tag to the article :) But I think your suggestion for the format makes it clearer. Thanks again. — Buckwad 08:30, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
The category tag is good, but I was referring to adding the template tag for Original reporting, which highlights the status of this article as having original reporting, which is a relative rarity here on Wikinews.
I went ahead and added it to the bottom of the article.
My hat's off to you! — DV 08:33, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)
