|White light resembling shooting star creates electrical havoc.
Initially I thought I saw a shooting star. As I watched the shooting star moving from west to the east I thought this is lasting too long and moving to far across the night sky. It moved no where near the speed of a shooting star, but a hell of a lot faster than an aircraft.
My wife had gone to bed around 12:30, I was still up to check on one of our Miniature Donkeys who I thought was ready to foal that night. Although I thought the event was strange, I was really creeped out over the next few days when I discovered all of my GFI's (Gound Fault Interupters) were tripped in my house and in the pastures around the farm, two of my electric fence chargers had shorted out, and the central air flipped the circuit breaker twice in a 24 hour period (It had never flipped the breaker before).
