There are increasing meteor reports recently all over the world. More debris from the Px tail...

ZetaTalk: Live Chat, written November 21, 2009

"When the debris from the tail of Planet X first started arriving in ernest, in 2004, the establishment chose to call this space junk. When the public became alarmed at the amount of space junk falling to Earth they tried to enhance the story by claiming that two satellites had crashed into each other, but this just made a bad story worse. Since fireballs have not gone away, but continued apace and if anything gotten worse, a new term has been used - asteroids. This is debris in the tail of Planet X, which is increasingly turning toward the Earth, hosed out from the N Pole of Planet X. This is why the wobble has gotten more violent, why electromagnetic disruption of dams and airplanes has occurred, and why blackouts will become more frequent. There will also be displays in the sky, some of which has already been noticed, from the electromagnetic tides assaulting the Earth's atmosphere. Stay tuned, more to come!"

Reports of a "bright light" and an "orange glow" were received by police across Scotland and the north of England around 9.40pm.

The Met Office tweeted: "Hi All, for anyone seeing something in the night sky, we believe it was a meteorite."

A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said the force had been "inundated" with calls about a bright object in the sky across the west of Scotland. A Durham Police spokeswoman said a number of calls came in around 9.45pm from concerned members of public who had seen a "bright light or a fire in the sky" and believed it may have been incidents involving an aircraft. "

It has been confirmed with air traffic control that there are no incidents of aircraftin difficult and nothing registered on radar," she said. "

The sightings are believed to be either an asteroid burning out or similar which has been restricted to the upper atmosphere only." Grampian Police said reports of people seeing a "flare or a bright object with a tail" were received from across the region. And Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said numerous calls were made about a "large ball of fire in the sky" across Annandale and Eskdale.

One user wrote on the force's Facebook page: "It was awesome to see! Really big and bright!" Hundreds of people took to Twitter to report similar sightings across Scotland and the north of England. People described seeing a bright fireball moving across the sky with a large tail.

The Kielder Observatory also reported the sighting of a "huge fireball" travelling from north to south over Northumberland at 9.41pm. The Observatory posted on Twitter: "Of 30 years observing the sky #fireball best thing I have ever seen period."

Second fireball in last 4 days, seen over San Diego. 

Southern California 'gets to wish upon a star' as mysterious streaks of light flash across starry night sky
-Local television captures footage of teal blue 'fireball', stopping traffic in San Diego
-National Weather Service could not confirm what it was, but astronomer says it was probably a meteor
-Earlier this month, similar flashes of light described as 'exploding stars' were seen throughout the region
-Last week was peak activity for the Perseid meteor shower

Residents of Southern California were awed by mysterious streaks of light across the starry night sky, and experts can't confirm what it is.
On Thursday, the local television station 10News posted a video shot by a camera affixed to the dashboard of a moving car in San Diego.
The clip shows what appears to be a fast-moving light teal blue 'fireball' that peters out over the horizon at around 8:30 p.m.
The National Weather Service was unable to offer up an explanation for the sighting, according to Denver7..."

Mysterious fireballs seen streaking across San Diego sky

SAN DIEGO – Numerous sightings of fireballs with streaking vapor tails were seen propagating together across the night sky shortly after 9:30 p.m. Monday.

http://fox5sandiego.com/2016/08/16/mysterious-fireballs-seen-streak...

U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Diego logged multiple incidents over metro San Diego and San Clemente Island, with additional sightings as far North as Los Angeles.

Preliminary reports suggest that the phenomenon possibly resembled characteristics of the recent Perseid meteor shower. 

According to the U.S. Navy’s 3rd Fleet Public Information Officer Lt. Holland, the USS Makin Island group is currently training in the area.  However, no “live fire” exercises were ongoing at the time of the reports.  Additionally the USS Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group was not present in the areas where the sightings were reported.   Lt. Holland noted that “No Navy helicopters were deployed to intercept the group of fireballs that were seen.”

The fireballs caught on dashcam video seem to propagate together at a much slower speed and lower elevation compared to where meteors are typically seen.  The mysterious fireballs were moving markedly slower than the Perseid meteors, which fall to earth at nearly 130,000 mph, but typically burn-up in the upper  atmosphere, 60 miles above the earth’s surface.

Unusually Large Fireball Explodes Over Wyoming (Aug 1)

(credit: Chris Peterson, Cloudbait Observatory, Research Associate, Denver Museum of Nature and Science)

A very bright fireball exploded in the sky over Wyoming just before 3:30 a.m. and could be seen as far away as Denver according to witnesses who spoke to researchers at the Cloudbait Observatory in Guffey, Colorado.

“By combining the data from both cameras, I can determine that the fireball exploded over Cheyenne, Wyo., at a height of 105 km (roughly 65 miles),” said Chris Peterson with Cloudbait Observatory.

Peterson describes the meteor as being unusually large with a brightness similar to the full Moon and having a large breakup in mid-flight, leaving enough material to continue burning afterward.

“Usually explosions like this are terminal, completely disrupting the body and leaving nothing to continue,” said Peterson.

The American Meteor Society has so far received 17 reports of this event.

Panic as explosions rock Argentinian city - but relief as experts realise what to blame: a huge 1,500mph meteor entering the Earth's atmosphere!

Residents of a city in southern Argentina got a scare when a series of powerful explosions shook homes and buildings, but the cause turned out to be a natural wonder: a meteor disintegrating overhead.

It was an ordinary Wednesday afternoon in General Roca, a city of 85,000 people, when suddenly a series of loud blasts caused buildings to shake and windows to rattle.

"Everything trembled," said Martin Soria, the local mayor.

Police, firefighters and emergency workers rushed to the scene, but found no evidence of a bomb, earthquake or calamity.

Finally, scientists pieced together the reason: A meteor had entered the Earth's atmosphere some 10,000 metres (33,000 feet) overhead, traveling at 1,500 miles per hour.

"It took everyone by surprise because it entered the atmosphere over an inhabited area. If it had fallen over the desert, the sea, Antarctica, we would never have known," said astronomer Roberto Figueroa, head of the nearby Neuquen observatory.

He estimated Wednesday's meteor measured about 12 metres in diameter before breaking into three fragments.

"It was likely a mineral meteor that entered the atmosphere at high speed at a very close angle to the Earth. As soon as it contacted the (atmospheric) gases, it heated up, the stone dilated, broke apart and fell as ash," he said.

"Some of the larger pieces may have reached the lower layers of the atmosphere and burned up there. Since they arrived at tremendous speed, they produced an expansive wave that could be heard as a boom."

Bright Fireball Over Nova Scotia (Jun 23)

Numerous people reported a bright light in the skies over Nova Scotia just before 10 p.m. on Thursday.

“I looked out my window, and there was this huge meteor going across the sky. It was the biggest one I’d ever seen,” said West Chezzetcook resident Scott Wolfe.

He spotted it around 9:30 p.m. and raced from one window to another to get the best view.

“We got a great panoramic-type view (of it) across the Chezzetcook Harbour,” he said.

“It definitely stuck around a while. I saw it for 10 or 15 seconds across the sky.”

He said it was a sight to see.

“There were pieces falling behind the thing. They would break off and stay bright in the air,” he said.

“It was pretty cool . . . I’d never really seen anything like it.”

Large Fireball Over Northeastern U.S. & Canada (Jun 14)

AMS has received over 150 reports of a large fireball over the northeastern U.S. and Canada.

Witness accounts:

"I am 60 years old and I walk a lot at night so have seen my fair share of meteors. This one lasted longer than any other I have seen and so we were able to see more detail than usual."

"I was with a companion, and both of us expressed moments of wondering if an airplane or satellite were going down, since this was quite a large and bright object."

Reports were received from NH, NY, PA, Ontario, VT, MA, ME, Québec, NJ, MD and RI.

A pair of Daytime Fireballs last few days.

1) What was that bright streak in the sky this morning over Western Washington?

Note:: Fireball only visible between 0:52 and 0:58 in the above video.

SEATTLE -- We've been getting messages from viewers across Western Washington all morning asking what was that flash in the sky? http://q13fox.com/2016/06/10/meteor-fireball-what-was-that-bright-s...

AMS took in reports from across the Northwest region, from Sooke, British Columbia all the way down to Roseberg, Oregon of a fireball in the sky started coming in around 4:30 a.m.

Q13 Meteorologist Rebecca Stevenson called the National Weather Service and verified that there was no lightning in Western Washington early Friday. The NWS said the nearest lightning strikes were in British Columbia over Vancouver Island.

"I saw it at 4:35 this morning. It came angling down right over Hwy 410 in Sumner 'til it got over the trees," said Q13 viewer Janine.

"I saw a bright light a bit to the right. It was a fireball that went from my right to left... at about a 45 degree angle of flight down. It was spotted at about 30-40 degrees above the horizon, was blueish-green, with a very bright yellow ball. The tail was mainly sparks, with a "halo" around the ball itself. It lasted a little more than one second," wrote Q13 viewer Paul.

Update on the June 2 'fireball':

NASA: Fireball in Arizona Sky was 10 foot, 20-ton Asteroid!

The flash itself was so bright, it briefly turned night into day. Marsha Adams sends these before, during, and after shots from Sedona, Arizona. "The camera was facing NE so it did not record the asteroid itself," says Adams. "However, the flash cast very distinct shadows, and landscape colors were vivid."

Early this morning, June 2nd just before 4 a.m. MST, a small asteroid hit Earth's atmosphere and exploded over Arizona. "There was a bright flash and the ground shook from the explosion," reports Chris Schur of Payson AZ, who says the flash of light was about 10x brighter than a full Moon. The explosion actually blinded a NASA camera located at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory on Mount Hopkins, Arizona

NASA later said it blinded all-sky meteor cameras as far away as New Mexico.

"That is a hefty piece of material coming in," said Dr. Ed Krupp of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. "This falls into the category of a near-miss, if a 7-foot rock fell into a major city, you're not going to destroy the city but you're going to do some major damage."

It was last spotted heading south over the Tonto National Forest in Arizona. NASA believes there is meteorite debris scattered on the ground just north of Tucson, Arizona.

Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office says this is the brightest fireball detected in the 8-year history of the NASA's All Sky Fireball Network, an array of cameras that monitors fireball activity across the USA.

According to NASA analysts, the asteroid was ~10 feet (3 meters) in diameter with a mass in the tens of tons and a kinetic energy of approximately 10 kilotons.

Eyewitness reports placed the object at an altitude of 57 miles above the Tonto National Forest east of the town of Payson, moving almost due south. It was last seen at an altitude of 22 miles above that same forest.

"There are no reports of any damage or injuries—just a lot of light and few sonic booms," says Cooke. "If Doppler radar is any indication, there are almost certainly meteorites scattered on the ground north of Tucson."

An Arizona Geological Survey report picked up an impact near Payson, and officials believe that was the point of the asteroid's detonation.

For The Record

"According to Josh Bangle, communications manager at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, the object could have been man-made space debris. Bangle said his best estimate says it was a meteor or Space Junk around the size of a baseball and do not think any of their telescopes has captured the space debris." Source
