No, I think the issue is instead that you are entirely ignoring the notion of 'evidence'. It's not by faith I accept a meteor fell, it's by evaluating the evidence and possible explanations. There are multiple videos, by different people of the event, hundreds of people injured. Yes it is possible this was all faked, but is that the most likely explanation? Where is faith coming into play in this rational analysis of the evidence?
The way you are defining it, there's no reason to exclude 'experiencing it first hand' from being faith, there is abundant evidence showing how unreliable eyewitness testimony is. If you would have witnessed the meteor you'd be taking it on faith that it was a meteor, it could have been multiple objects including manmade ones, you and others could be hallucinating, you may be dreaming, we may all be living in the Matrix, etc. Yes, ultimately you can't really 'know' anything and everything is taken on some degree of faith, but treating those words that way doesn't really accomplish anything except making the words 'know' and 'faith' useless.
