2nd large meteor in 6 weeks. -


 

As if the world wasn't already dangerous enough: A small asteroid or meteor entered earth's atmosphere over the western US Wednesday night, traveling at a surprisingly high speed of about a hundred thousand miles an hour.The object exploded with the force of 0.5 to 1 kiloton of TNT. It was so bright that it turned the sky blue. Shock waves shook the ground from Colorado to Utah when it exploded. The explosion took place just after midnight in the area. Although the Leonid meteor shower is underway, the object was not part of it.
 

 

Six hours after the fireball, noctilucent clouds appeared in the dawn sky. There had been no reported rocket launches, which may mean that the clouds were connected with the meteor.

A number of asteroids and other large objects are moving through the solar system at this time. Since July, large impacts have been recorded on Jupiter, in one of the rings of Saturn and possibly on Venus. Earth has experienced two near misses in the past few weeks, and one airburst of an asteroid over Indonesia on October 8. Like the Indonesian object, there was no warning of the incoming western US meteor. Let's hope we start getting warnings about these space rocks before it's too late!

Will the world end in 2012? To find out what Whitley thinks the Mayans really meant by that warning subscribe today and listen to what he has to say about it!
