Homeowner who heard a loud bang discovers a 15-inch wide blazing crater in his garden in Appling, Georgia!!

https://www.sott.net/article/358970-Homeowner-who-heard-a-loud-bang-discovers-a-15-inch-wide-blazing-crater-in-his-garden-in-Appling-Georgia


A stunned homeowner in Georgia has spoken about the moment a glowing red meteor crashed outside his house, leaving a huge crater.

Jay Sullivent heard a loud bang while he was at home in Appling, and initially thought it was a car crash.

Unable to find a wreckage he took a walk around his lawn before stumbling on a burned circle of grass with smoke rising from it.

Mr Sullivent said: 'It was so loud that I thought there had been a car accident on the road in front of my house.

'When I got over to the crater it was around 15 inches deep and about the same across. The rock in the middle was glowing red.’

How fortunate that it didn't fall into dry brush!

One of our former Mods in Georgia had a meteorite crash through one place in her roof and go out another place in her roof. They could never find it. Close call.  :o

This is the type of thing that will become increasingly common, not to mention dangerous, as the sizes and frequency will escalate.  But the news media will never try to connect any of these with each other, or with anything else.

This must have been a big one ..

Pennsylvania Fireball August 25, 2017

http://www.amsmeteors.org/2017/08/pennsylvania-fireball-august-25-2017/

More than 750 reports from 10 states!

The AMS has received over 750 reports so far about of a fireball event seen above the state of Pennsylvania on August 25, 2017 around 9:14pm EDT (August 26, 2017 ~ 01:14 Universal Time). The fireball was seen primarily from Pennsylvania but was also seen from Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Massachusetts. According to our latest estimated trajectory, the fireball traveled in a southeast to northwest direction entering the atmosphere near Gratz, PA and terminating near Crosby on highway 46.

Giant Asteroid To Give Earth A Very Close Shave

2012 TC4 will fly by Earth on Oct. 12 at a distance of about 27,000 miles (43,500 kilometers), or about one-eighth the distance to the moon. Previous observations suggested the space rock might come to within 4,200 miles (6,800 kilometers), according to a statement from NASA. [Enormous  – Giant Asteroid to Give Earth a Very Close Shave – Aug.30.2017

Teams of scientists from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) that monitor the locations of near-Earth objects have been tracking asteroid 2012 TC4 with various instruments, including the ESA's Very Large Telescope Observatory. Those observations have made it possible to better predict when the asteroid will make its flyby of Earth, and just how close it will get to the planet. Observing close flybys like this also helps prepare teams to detect a near-Earth asteroid whose course might pose a threat to Earth. – Giant Asteroid to Give Earth a Very Close Shave – Aug.30.2017 https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/science/giant-asteroid-give-earth-very-close-shave-ncna797451?cid=par-weather_20170904&cid=par-weather-right-module?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_mc_170904 via NBC News

Large meteor fireball lights up night sky over British Columbia, Canada

https://www.sott.net/article/361123-Large-meteor-fireball-lights-up-night-sky-over-British-Columbia-Canada

If you were looking east at around 10:00 pm you might have caught a glimpse of what some people are calling a meteorite falling to the ground.

Tashia is in Nelson. She says she was tucking her son into bed before she saw the sky light up.

"We felt it. It was way more intense than thunder, but not quite like an earthquake. It rattled the windows."

Laureen was in Langley.

"It looked like a ball of fire. It was quite large. It came streaking through the sky and just kept going. I said 'that's going to hit something'."

In the next several months we should pay VERY close attention to large scale meteor impacts as the Planet-X debris field starts to impact with Earth ..

The Earth is starting to interact with the Planet-D debris field, just as Marshall’s recent video interview talked about ..

Huge, unidentified fireball filmed over Krasnodar, Russia

https://www.rt.com/news/402633-russia-huge-fireball-video/

A mysterious fireball has been filmed in the dark evening skies over the city of Krasnodar in southern Russia.

The burning object can be seen plummeting towards residential buildings.

The fireball, which crossed the region's skies from south to north, was witnessed by "thousands of people in Krasnodar," regional daily KP Kuban wrote.

People in other cities in the region, including Anapa and Sochi, also claim to have seen a "huge flash" in the skies around 9:40pm local time, according to the newspaper.

Instead of northern lights in the southern skies, they were reportedly treated to the unidentified fireball, said to have left an incandescent trail before breaking into three parts and disappearing.

It remains unknown whether it touched the ground, KP reports, adding that there have been no reports of damage or casualties from local emergency services.

The nature of the fireball also remains a mystery (But we know here don't we!!). Head of a local observatory, Aleksandr Ivanov, told the daily he doubted the object was a meteorite, saying it looked more like a "signal rocket."

Very bright daytime meteor fireball explodes over Mauritius and Reunion Island

https://www.sott.net/article/362150-Very-bright-daytime-meteor-fireball-explodes-over-Mauritius-and-Reunion-Island

A very bright meteor fireball exploded over Mauritius and Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean on Thursday, September 14, 2017 around 18.00 pm local time.

A facebook report said, "I saw it was in Grand Bay. A meteor that enter Mauritius skies. A like a firework in full speed at about 6: 07 pm today." Some observers say the phenomenon was accompanied by a loud noise. After fragmenting the bolide left a smoky trail.

According to Thierry, a Reunion Island resident, "I saw a kind of ball passing in the sky, it lasted about 7 seconds, with a very straight trajectory ... It was multicolored in fact, it was a large ball of mauve color, blue , with a white, yellow streak." About four minutes after seeing this phenomenon, Thierry describes hearing an explosion before experiencing a tremor.
