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.
