    it looks more like a HAARP occurrence or some other scientific military project....or, of course, it could be an alien ship smile

      A meteor hit the ground here last night. It was loud and it shook the earth, nearly knocked me over when it hit.

      It was most definitely a meteor though. I went and saw where it hit today. It looks like a bunch of rocks with holes in them. (It smashed to pieces when it hit) It's pretty cool if you ask me, as long as millions of them don't start hitting lol

    Saw this article earlier today and was wondering what kind of meteor lasted 15 minutes... I mean, from what I have understood, meteors don't light up until they enter our atmosphere.

    I'd like to see some home videos.  Guess it is time for a YouTube search.

      It depends on the trajectory of the meteor.  If the trajectory is not to steep it can stay in the atmosphere for awhile before either exiting the atmosphere or impacting earth.  In this case the object was said to be the size of a Volkswagen but the remains were said to be the size of footballs after impact.

    Pretty darn impressive!

      Yes it was!  But we are due a direct hit from a very large object as we average one every 100 years.  The last was the Tunguska event at the turn of the 20th century.

    so far, all the videos and opinions on what it is are different. One scientist said it could not be part of the meteor shower, becuase it was going in the wrong direction...I have done a bit of reading on the HAARP ionosphere military electromagnetic project, and it looks to me more like what that can do...

    i know many of you will probably blow off my opinion, but has anyone ever considered the possibility that it might be just a new air craft the military is testing, and they're trying to cover it up.  after all, there is government secrets that they don't always tell the public about.

      Wouldn't having a military aircraft that announces its presence like the sun be foolish to make?

      1. Stevennix2001 profile image90
        Stevennix2001posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        yeah, hence why i said they're probably testing it.  as all new technology is flawed at first, until it gets more refined.

          Why wouldn't they test the light-making material in a place where they wouldn't have to worry about it being seen?

            idk, you have to ask them. im just telling you my theory.  lol.  maybe it's because they know most people wouldn't believe the person who saw it, as they would probably chalk it up to another ufo sighting.  after all, it's not like there's NEVER enough of those every year by people. roll  lollol

              Good point. Hmmm, looks like to get my answers I'm going to have to form a super elite squad of monkey ninjas to aid me in my quest to break into the highly secret military compound Area 97 to ask them...

                  Area 51 is just a front military base, the real power is in Area 97.

    ...here is something on HAARP, the military electromagnetic wave that bounces on the ionosphere...didn't see anything in this video like the recent thing, but I have seen other video of HAARP similar as the recent "meteor". I put a link to them in the forums before and will look for them

    We experienced a meteor in central Texas last year.  It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.  It made such an incredible rumble...and the only way I know to describe it is that it made the air shake.  I've never experienced an earthquake, but I imagine it to be similar, except this is the air shaking instead of the ground.  Some people near us were paid some impressive amounts of money for the pieces found on their land.  We had collectors flocking in from all over and putting ads in our local papers saying they'd pay top dollar for pieces.

      Several years ago I witnessed a huge fireball during the Leonid meteor shower.  I could easily see the smoke and debris trailing it as it burned across the sky. 

      It was traveling on a flat trajectory and passed very quickly.  I don't know if it burned out or impacted the earth but it was very impressive.

    Randy, that reminds me of when we were able to see the space shuttle come in. It was when my kids were pretty small and my youngest is almost 18 now.  It had a nice trail that was fun to watch streak across the sky pretty low to the horizon.

      I am lucky KCC, in that I live in the country away from city lights and get to enjoy the meteor showers each year.  Unless you leave the cities you cannot appreciate the night sky with its many awesome heavenly bodies.

        I'm fortunate in that way as well.  I live on 27 open acres with the big Texas sky above me.  smile My English hubby has been more than delighted with the sky here.  He's never seen so many stars.

        1. Randy Godwin profile image92
          Randy Godwinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          We are both lucky then, KCC.  Where once the night sky was something to marvel at by our ancestors, today few people really get the opportunity to enjoy an unfettered view of the stars and planets. 

          It should come as no surprise that the ancients knew the constellations so much better than modern folk.  It was a major source of marvel and wonder to early man and it's no wonder they were able to correctly devise accurate calendars and predict eclipses.

            You're exactly right, Randy.  Their "world", quite literally, revolved around the skies.  We enjoy sitting out star-gazing.

            1. Randy Godwin profile image92
              Randy Godwinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              The first religions were started by those smart enough to understand the workings of the night sky.  This gave the educated "priests" much power since the people depended on the "priests" to tell them when to hunt and fish and plant their crops.

              Look how many temples and structures were based on the sunrise of the summer solstice.  This is why the "heavens" are so much apart of many religions.  We have been marveling at them for hundreds of thousands of years.

                KCC Big Countryposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                That is very true, Randy.  It's easy to see how things have evolved from the fascination and dependency with the skies and "heavens" into the religions we see.

    They found pieces of it in Wisconsin.  Some farmer brought it in.  They are saying there are a lot of pieces out there.

      Randy Godwinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I personally own a hunk of meteorite which came from a much larger piece found in a swamp.  It is not a "fell" meteorite. (one which was observed before impacting the earth)
