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."

Two Asteroids Brush Earth Within Moon's Orbit (May 29) -

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/47602867/ns/technology_and_science-spac...

The newfound asteroid 2012 KP24 (discovered "yesterday") zoomed by Earth Monday, coming within 32,000 miles (51,000 kilometers) on its closest approach, according to astronomers at NASA's Asteroid Watch at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

"We'll have a close but very safe pass of asteroid 2012 KP24 May 28," scientists with NASA's Asteroid Watch program assured via Twitter.

Asteroid Watch is part of the Near-Earth Object Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

The NEO office oversees the agency's efforts to detect, track and characterize potentially dangerous asteroids or comets that could zoom close to Earth.

The recently discovered asteroid 2012 KP24 measures about 69 feet (21 meters) across and did not pose any threat to Earth during its flyby, NASA scientists said.

But this space rock is not the only one that paid a close visit to our planet this week.

Another small asteroid, called 2012 KT42, flew past Earth early Tuesday. The asteroid came within 8,950 miles (14,400 km) on its closest approach, which easily fits between the Earth and moon's orbit. For comparison, the moon typically circles Earth at a distance of about 240,000 miles (386,000 km).

While asteroid 2012 KT42 was only discovered yesterday, the space rock did not pose any impact threat Earth when it made its closest approach at 3:07 a.m. EDT, NASA scientists said.

Meteor hits Mexico and caused a slight tremor in various locations Veracruz


-Google translated-
Both in the State of Mexico and Veracruz, people using Twitter reported the fall of a luminous object seen from the sky.
Civil Protection Authorities of Veracruz seeking in the mountainous area north of the state of an object that fell from the sky at about 10 and half of Friday night.
Early reports indicate that the impact could be in the community belonging to San Jose Chicharrín Atenco Puebla or in Martinez de la Torre or Tlapacoyan, Veracruz side.
However, both states seek brigade which lit up the sky and caused a slight tremor in various locations Veracruz.
Witnesses living in martineneces congregations reported that they saw a shooting star in the sky falling at great speed.
When they lost sight of the earth shook so deduced that it was a meteorite.
While some commented that it was a plane that had crashed, that version could be ruled out given that inhabitants of Veracruz assured by social networks have seen the fall of the object.
It is expected that the state authorities succeed in reaching the point where he fell in order to give an official version.

Fireball Streaks Across Skies From Wisconsin to Manitoba (May 12) -

http://www.dl-online.com/event/article/id/67564/

Over 65 eyewitness accounts ranging from Wisconsin to Manitoba, Canada, during the same time span Friday in which people saw a fireball in the Detroit Lakes area.

The fireball was seen moving east to west and, according to reports, was very bright with a lengthy tail. Colors ranged from blue to green, while some eyewitnesses reported the fireball breaking up into fragments and “fizzling” out.

Most of the area accounts happened around 10 p.m. Friday.

“It was just a very bright and blue ball which went right over our heads,” said Anthony Allguire, who along with Erin Cook, was providing security at the Kirkbride Building in Fergus Falls. “It broke apart and just dissipated. It was pretty awesome.”

Around the same time, Stacy and Derek Lee of Thief River Falls, saw a very similar occurrence.

“My husband and I saw the streaking light on Friday night while sitting in our house in Thief River Falls,” Stacy Lee said in an e-mail. “It was a bright bluish light that streaked through the sky. It had a bit of a tail trailing behind it.”

Several accounts were reported in the Detroit Lakes area, including Ashley Drewes, who lives south of Frazee.

“We were sitting at a bonfire and someone said, ‘Look! A shooting star,’” Drewes said. “But that wasn’t a shooting star because it was so bright. At first, I thought it was a firework going off because it was so bright.”

Yet another eyewitness account came east of Detroit Lakes, near Park Rapids, where Kevin Olson and his brother, Allen, saw it driving back from a late supper in Dorset.

“My brother was driving and he said, ‘Wow, look at that,’” Kevin Olson said. “It was a bright light streaking across the sky and it lasted a couple seconds.

“What really stuck out was how bright it was and the length of the tail.”

Kari and Dan Lane were also driving back home and came to a three-way stop just southwest of Pearl Lake.

“It streaked right in front of us and over the tree line,” Kari Lane recalled. “We just sat there in awe and in silence for a few seconds. It was just really bright and was red and purple, with a little fire trailing in the back. We were waiting for a loud bang, but never heard anything.”

Another account taken from the Meteor Hunter website came from East St. Paul, Manitoba, Canada, by J. Mather at 10 p.m.

“(It lasted) five seconds going ESE (east-southeast) to WNW (west-northwest) facing south. (It was) bright green in color, bright as a firework and definite fragmentation. Observed bright green object break up into smaller parts. Appeared to be very low altitude.”

So with the wide range of sightings throughout a wide swath of area, what in the world was it?

According to Associate Professor and Senior Project Coordinator Juan Cabanela of the Minnesota State University Moorhead astronomy department, it was more than likely a meteor, which was traveling between 15 to 30 miles per second and about 30 miles above land.

“My best guess, it was about one foot to two feet big,” Cabanela said. “If you have seen a meteor shower, those are only the size of a grain of sand, consisting of a cigarette ash.

“But you can see these meteors from up to 30 miles high, so it’s a wide range of distance you can see them.”

The different colors the meteor turned can be due to the immense temperature the object is creating crashing through the earth’s atmosphere, which is up to 30 times faster than a rifle bullet.

With that much pressure the meteor is under and traveling at that kind of speed, most burn up in the atmosphere. But if they do survive and reach earth, it turns into a meteorite.

“It’s something which can be recoverable, but you need to triangulate where it landed, which is difficult to do,” Cabanela said. “If it did make it to the ground, it will not be too big.”

With most of the people who saw Friday night’s space light show being a first-time experience, Cabanela said it is rare, but it’s not entirely uncommon.

“It’s not insanely rare, but people are not trained to look up to the skies,” Cabanela added. “It’s still special to see something like that, though.”

It’s a sentiment that can be agreed upon with everyone who saw the dying meteor racing across the earth’s atmosphere Friday evening.

Huge fireball and explosion across California and Nevada as meteor breaks up over Sierra Nevada

By Daily Mail Reporter

|

The sound of the explosion around 8am prompted a flood of calls to law enforcement agencies on both sides of the Sierra Nevada in the two states.

The explosion rattled windows and shook houses from Reno to Winnemucca in Nevada, and from the Sacramento to Bakersfield areas in California.

Some people in the two states reported seeing a fireball streak across the sky at the same time.

Dan Ruby of the Fleischmann Planetarium at the University of Nevada, Reno, says the reports indicate the meteor broke up above Earth somewhere over the Sierra southwest of Reno.

Hundreds Report Seeing Fireball Across 4 States (April 11)

Skywatchers across the Chicago area reported a streaking fireball in the sky so intense that some thought they’d witnessed a fiery plane crash on the Southeast Side.

Reports of the fireball starting coming in about 8:25 p.m. with over 100 people from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa reporting the light show.

Descriptions ranged from simply a blue-green fireball to a yellow fireball with a red center and a trailing blue-and-white tail.

John from North Chicago wrote “12sec nw green/blue very bright unknow it only lasted about 12sec but it was a sight to see truly amazing.”

But while many delighted in the display, others thought they’d witnessed something much grimmer as emergency crews responded to 126th Street and Avenue 0 on the Far Southeast Side of the city to investigate a possible plane crash.

A police helicopter was also called to help search Wolf Lake, which sits on the Illinois-Indiana border near the Hegewisch neighborhood.

Searchers found nothing, and authorities soon found that while no aircraft had been reported missing, many skywatchers were reporting a “very bright” meteor falling about 8:20 p.m. and crews stopped their search, the Chicago Fire Department said.

No one from NASA or the National Weather Service could be reached for comment.

April 3, Lake Michigan, Wisconsin -

"A call that brought out search and rescue crews off the Lake Michigan shore Tuesday night may have been sparked by a falling meteor.

The U.S. Coast Guard Canal Station in Sturgeon Bay responded to a sighting of an off-shore white flare near Jacksonport Tuesday night.

“We had a call at approximately 9:15 p.m. local time of one white flare an undetermined distance off the shore” near Jacksonport, said BMC Justin Longval, executive petty officer at the station.

A white flare does not necessarily mean distress – a distress flare is red – but the Coast Guard launched its 45-foot response boat and called in an aircraft from the Air Station in Traverse City, Mich., for the search.

The Coast Guard searched by air and water for two hours without finding anything or anyone, Longval said.

A helicopter from Traverse City conducted a first-light search Wednesday morning. It found nothing.

“It’s always better to report it” and make sure there is nothing there, he said.

The Coast Guard has received no reports of missing persons or vessels and concluded the sighting may not have been flare.

“Meteorite, falling star, whatever you want to call it,” Longval said. There is no way to know."

APRIL 2, TEXAS, SAN ANTONIO

FIREBALL LEAVES AREA RESIDENTS WONDERING

People who reported seeing a fiery ball of light in the cloudless noon sky Monday really did see an unidentified flying object.

It was likely falling space debris or a meteor, according to the National Weather Service.

“It could definitely have caused that,” said meteorologist Pat McDonald. “It's the only thing we can think that could have caused that.”

Jane Marke, an amateur astronomer, said she was at a traffic light near the airport when she saw a bright light streaking across the eastern sky at 11:49 a.m.

“I saw a brightness of light fall from the sky, going very fast,” Marke said. “I would say it was about 1 magnitude. That's about as bright as you can get.”

She said she believes it was a meteor, though it could have been “a piece of space junk.”

A San Antonio Express-News photographer driving between Kerrville and Comfort saw what he described as a very bright ball of light low in the sky at 11:50 a.m.

Around the same time, a 911 caller reported seeing some sort of airborne fiery object that appeared to be falling near Johns Road north of Interstate 10 in Boerne. A police officer was dispatched but didn't find anything, a department clerk said.

Sheriff's offices in Kendall County and Kerr County reported receiving no calls about the object.

The Army, which operates an ammunition storage and transfer facility at Camp Stanley in Northwest Bexar County, reported no unusual activity Monday morning.

“All the ranges at Camp Stanley are closed, so we weren't testing ammunition and we haven't had any incident today regarding the storage and transfer facilities,” said Phil Reidinger, an Army spokesman at Fort Sam Houston.

The Air Force said none of its planes at two local bases was involved in an incident that could have caused the flash.

“We don't have anything that would generate a great flash of light in the sky,” said Dave Smith, a spokesman with the Air Education and Training Command at Randolph AFB....    Source

Four Asteroids Buzz Earth Within 10 Day Window

An asteroid the size of a passenger jet zoomed near the Earth Sunday (April 1), just in time for April Fools' Day, but the space rock flyby posed no threat of hitting our planet, NASA officials said.

The asteroid 2012 EG5 was closer than the moon when it flew by Earth at 5:32 a.m. EDT (0932 GMT). The space rock is about 150 feet wide (46 meters), according to a NASA records. Scientists with the space agency announced the April Fools' asteroid flyby on Friday, March 30.

"Asteroid 2012 EG5 will safely pass Earth on April 1," scientists with NASA's Asteroid Watch program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., wrote in a Twitter statement.

The space rock may have visited Earth on April Fools' Day, but its flyby was no prank. The asteroid crept within 143,000 miles (230,000 kilometers) of Earth during its closest approach, which is just over half the distance between Earth and the moon's orbit. The moon typically circles the Earth at a distance of 238,000 miles (382,900 km).

Asteroid 2012 EG5 was the third relatively small asteroid to buzz the Earth in seven days.Two smaller asteroids passed near Earth on Monday (March 26).

Early Monday, the bus-size asteroid 2012 FP35 came within 96,000 miles (154,000 km) of Earth. It was followed a few hours later by asteroid 2012 FS35, which is the size of a car and passed Earth at a range of 36,000 miles (58,000 km).

Like asteroid 2012 EG5, those two smaller space rocks on Monday posed no risk of hitting Earth. Those space rocks were so small they would not survive the trip through Earth's atmosphere, even if they were aimed at our planet, Asteroid Watch researchers said.

Asteroid 2012 EG5 was discovered on March 13 by astronomers searching for near-Earth space rocks. Another space rock, the asteroid 2012 FA57, was discovered on March 28 and will fly by Earth on April 4 when it passes at a range just beyond the orbit of the moon.

Fireball Streaks Across New Zealand Sky (April 2, 2012)

The glowing ball steaking across the sky that fascinated the country last night was most likely a meteor.

The bright and colourful light was spotted in the lower North Island and the South Island, including Wellington, Blenheim and Christchurch, about 6.30pm.

While some initially suspected the ball and the long trail behind it was from an aircraft, with a condensation trail from the engine, Carter Observatory programme manager John Field said it was most likely to be a particularly bright meteor, known as a fireball.

"Fireballs happen on average about once a day around the world, but it's just rare to be in the right place at the right time.

"They would so often appear in isolated areas away from cities, or at 3am when everyone is sleeping, so we were very lucky to get to see such a sight."

There were no satellites due to re-enter the atmosphere at the time, and its unusual flight path ruled it out as an aircraft, Field said.

"It was seen across too large a geographic area to be an aircraft, especially when you consider it's non-linear flight path."

Because of the positioning of the sun at the time, the fireball appeared extra bright in the sky.

"It was high up so was catching the light from the setting sun, which made it easily visible for so many people.

"It was a fantastic combination of elements that came together to put on quite a show."

Flash of Light Observed Over Great Plains (March 13)

"A flash of light in the early morning sky over the Great Plains on Tuesday lit up social media and cyberspace as witnesses tried to figure out what they had seen.

“It was like the whole sky lit up for just a second,” Joe Kleinsasser said in an e-mail about what he saw as he drove from Hillsboro to work at Wichita State University at about 6:45 a.m.

More than 50 people in five states — Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska and Missouri — reported the flash to the Lunar Meteorite Hunters website on Tuesday."
