Blast of Light, Huge Boom and Ground Shaking “Over Thousands of Miles in Russia”

https://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2594&category=Environment

“We saw this while driving. There was a vibration and the sound of explosion
in the sky, awesome! What was it? A meteor, a rocket from space, UFO, North Korea?”

- Artyom Russkikh, Eyewitness, The Siberian Times, Jan. 8, 2018

— “I saw the flash in Menzelinsk. There was also the sound
of an explosion and then a vibration. I felt it.”

Ilnaz Shaykhraziev, eyewitness in Menzelinsk, Russia, The Siberian Times, Jan. 8, 2018


January 9, 2018 Bashkortostan, Udmurtia and Tatarstan, Russia - A few minutes after midnight on Sunday, January 7, 2018, according to the video timestamp, an “explosion of light” with a loud boom sound was caught on security cameras at the same time that the ground shook “over thousands of miles in Russia.” The geographic focus with the most intensity seemed to be in the region of Bashkortostan, Udmurtia and Tatarstan marked by the three red circles on the maps below.

Astronomer attributes flash of light, sonic boom in Dallas/Ft. Worth neighborhood to exploding meteorite

https://www.sott.net/article/374016-Astronomer-attributes-flash-of-light-sonic-boom-in-Dallas-Ft-Worth-neighborhood-to-exploding-meteorite

A mysterious "boom" rattled a North Texas neighborhood and residents have no idea what exactly it was or what it could mean.

Residents in North Oak Cliff said they heard an explosive noise around 8:34 p.m. on Wednesday night. Some reported seeing a flash first, then the load noise.

Resident Isaac Martinez managed to capture a short video of the event from his security cameras.

"Out of nowhere, just this pow!" said Phillip Washington, who heard the noise from his Kings Highway apartment. "Just this huge explosion.”

"It was without a doubt, the loudest sound that I've heard," said Washington. "You could feel the percussion of the sound."

This seems to be one of several close shaves recently.  I guess we're beginning to pass through the thick of it now - so as Marshall warns, we'd all better be looking up at the sky when we go out now!

'Potentially Hazardous' Near-Earth Asteroids Will Surge in 2018  ??? ???


https://www.outerplaces.com/science/item/17472-potentially-hazardous-near-earth-asteroids-surge-2018

Good news: Last year saw a dramatic increase in the number of asteroids that we know about that flew uncomfortably close to the Earth, and 2018 is poised to see the highest amount of "potentially hazardous" near-Earth asteroids in years.

Why is this good news?

Because none of them wiped out humanity, and as such, it's increasingly clear that extinction-level asteroid events are extremely rare.

And while "potentially hazardous" sounds frightening, it's worth noting that NASA deems any object that gets closer to Earth than 4.65 million miles away "potentially hazardous."

There's something inherently terrifying about the idea that a big giant space rock could fall out of the sky at any moment and wipe out humanity. It's enough of a pressing concern on our collective psyche that scientists have organized a global cooperative planetary defense system in order to keep a constant eye out for giant, dangerous asteroid collisions.

2017 saw an increase in the number of total asteroids spotted, as a reflection not of the number of rocks that could collide with Earth, but rather, of our ability to spot them as they sail past. In total, over 2,000 asteroids were newly identified, the most that have ever been spotted in a single year, and it's looking like 2018 could deliver even more.

So I guess we should all sleep better now, right?  :-X

2018 should be a VERY exciting year ..

http://abcnews.go.com/US/earthquake-causing-meteor-leaves-southeast-michigan-residents-awestruck/story?id=52397269

Earthquake-causing meteor leaves southeast Michigan residents awestruck!!   :o

 Residents of southeast Michigan were left a bit shaken Tuesday night after a big bright flash lit up the sky and the
ground beneath them shook.

A flying saucer? No. A shooting star? Not quite.
The National Weather Service eventually solved the mystery, tweeting "USGS confirms meteor occurred around 810 pm, causing a magnitude 2.0 earthquake."

 According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake was centered about five miles west-southwest of New Haven, Michigan, located about 40 miles northeast of Detroit.

Initially though, as curious residents took to social media by droves to share videos of the dazzling display, the National Weather Service wasn't so sure what these star-gazers had seen.

The American Meteor Society's report map illustrated that the meteor was visible in six states and in Canada.

Incoming: Massive house-sized asteroid will fly close to Earth next week

https://www.sott.net/article/374417-Incoming-Massive-house-sized-asteroid-will-fly-close-to-Earth-next-week

Unlike that false alarm in Hawaii, this potentially cataclysmic piece of news is real: an asteroid between 22 and 68 meters in diameter is going to swing past Earth on January 23 at around 12,300 miles an hour (around Mach 16). It's going to come within 1.1 million miles of Earth, but it's unclear whether its trajectory will cause it to hit Earth or fly past harmlessly.
  :(

The asteroid, named 2018 AJ, is just one of several asteroids that have suddenly popped up on NASA's radar without warning-the last one was 2017 YD7, which was spotted December 28 and flew past Earth on January 3.

An asteroid doesn't have to be a giant in order to wreak mass destruction, however-the Chelyabinsk meteor was about 17 meters in diameter and weighed approximately 10,000 metric tons, and it still made it through Earth's atmosphere, exploding with the force of around 470 kilotons of TNT and causing thousands of injuries just from breaking nearby windows.

Wow, this is starting to sound/feel truly serious.  We're not safe anywhere except in caves.  Thanks for posting!

This film narrator demonstrates his hypothesis that the meteor over Michigan may actually have been destroyed by two missiles before it reached earth.

That's a whole different twist to consider!  Wonder where they were planning to escape to?

One of the Members in Australia just messaged me that there is supposedly a close call of an asteroid Feb 4th.
Haven't located it, wanted to post this B 4 I forget...

http://www.newsweek.com/giant-asteroid-wont-hit-earth-scientists-are-still-going-keep-eye-it-784040

On February 4, an asteroid called 2002 AJ129 is due to slip past Earth. It is between 1600 and 4000 feet across, according to NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies, but there's no chance it will make impact—NASA has calculated it will remain 2.6 million miles away.

That still makes it what astronomers call a "potentially hazardous asteroid," thanks to its size being more than about 500 feet across and an orbital path that carries it within about 4,650,000 miles of Earth.
