    I was actually outside having a smoke with a buddy at the time. I was looking up at the sky, as usual, the entire time except for about 2 seconds when it went by. My friend saw it though and couldn't stop talking about it for at least 5 minutes.

    I guess the number one rule for meteor watching should be "don't blink".

    I heard it was quite the showing too. I live near Chicago, which was where the largest of the meteors struck, unfortunately I was not out that night, but I did hear of a few people that saw it. Was this an unexpected meteor, I had heard nothing of it until I saw it on the news!

    It also seemed to me like it was only one large meteor that hit and broke up, instead of many small meteor's.

    That's correct.
    It broke up while in the atmosphere.
