Mystery Orb Crash over Värmland Sweden ?

And so read the headlines yesterday here in Sweden on this mystery fire ball. I don't have very much to say about it other than such reports seem to happen more often than not these days. Various Global Government Conspiracy theories and Mayan Calendar speculations of Doom! The area apparently where this occurred was up in Värmland where my Father-In-Law lives in Björneborg, Sweden. It's a quiet town, though once an industrial Steel works town. Very quiet town now and from what I've seen when we've visited in summer, there are many Norwegian Tourists who have summer homes there.

Well, okay, here is the Swedish News Report link in Swedish
Here is the Swedish News in English Link
Below is a video floating around here of supposedly what someone saw and videoed. I'm a bit puzzled by this as the title says it happened over Sweden on Dec 11, 2012, but the Youtube Video says published on Dec 10, 2012. Hmmmmm ???????

Now leaning towards the Logic side here, there is a good explanation of what may be taking place as a result of meteor showers Dec 12 - 14 , 2012.
December 13/14, 2012, late night December 13 until dawn December 14 - Geminids
 The final major meteor shower of every year (unless one surprises us!) is always the December Gemind shower, often producing 50 or more meteors per hour. It is a beloved shower, because, as a general rule, it's either the August Perseids or the December Geminids that give us the most prolific display of the year. Best of all, the new moon guarantees a dark sky on the peak of night of the Geminid shower (mid-December 13 until dawn December 14). But the nights on either side of the peak date should be good as well. Unlike many meteor showers, you can start watching the Geminids by 9 or 10 p.m. local time. The peak might be around 2:00 a.m. local time on these nights, because that's when the shower's radiant point is highest in the sky as seen around the world. With no moon to ruin the show, 2012 presents a most favorable year for watching the grand finale of the meteor showers. Best viewing of the Geminids will probably be from about 1:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. on December 14.
Okay, Conspiracy away!
