Cool, but it is a meteor... 

 

Quote

A meteor is an asteroid or other object that burns and vaporizes upon entry into the Earth's atmosphere; meteors are commonly known as "shooting stars." If a meteor survives the plunge through the atmosphere and lands on the surface, it's known as a meteorite.

Or if ya want to especially precise, it is a bolide.

With the ubiquity of surveillance & dash cams, we're seeing a lot more of these types of videos.

Shouldn't Asteroids be called hemorrhoids and hemorrhoids be be called asteroids?  ..... Think about it, I'm sure there was a mix-up and someday this mistake will be changed.  Maybe this issue should be brought before the US senate?, plenty of experts there I'd say!  

PS Kool, ....kiting without foot straps, makes gybing difficult, and probably only one skeg on the board.

Per Premiumunleaded, probably could have used some Preparation H (or A!?)
