I think sonic data was used as well. There's a chance, if there is any such data here. We'll have to wait and see.

The orbit of the impactor can be determined by collecting witness accounts of elevation and trajectory from where observed. Like Phage, I do not think it is related because it was very far away from the main body, but who knows.

I would suspect this is an iron, because small chondrites usually do not make it to the ground at cosmic velocities. Very interesting to see what comes out of this , and how much information that they can gather.

I'm glad no one was hurt. It's been interesting reading this thread....I wonder if they'll find it ? I noticed the metal detector in the pic.

Ok, so after bit more detective work, found out from reading a site in Spanish that the impact occurred at about 11:05 PM local time. Dug up Nicaragua time zone, converted to UTC (UTC- 6 hours), and determined what to look for on seismic data. Went and found the closest WORKING seismic station I could discern to the impact, and that turned out to be MASN.NU. So I downloaded the data and displayed, looking for that exact time. And here's what I found:



Spectro and waveform provided.

That signature on spectro would be consistent with a shallow, small impact, as you can see the higher frequency range of it, and not dipping down into real low frequencies below 5 Hz- like an earthquake from deep in the earth would do. If there were a seismic station closer, would have had a better view.

Not all that exciting, I know, but it was a good exercise for me nonetheless to keep the chops up.

And btw, this is probably the first and only place on the web you will see that pic. So copyright rules apply, and permission is not granted by me to use that pic anywhere else. ATS only.


Excellent work True American! However, I'm curious as to why you don't want the knowledge shared if you do not intend on profiting from it? It certainly is your right though.......

Just a thought. Is there any chance of whatever hit surviving the impact?

Just to let you know guys, It's been another one in Spain.

Mini doom!

Who knows what may follow?
All in all pretty exciting.



Why would you call the potential deaths of thousands or possibly even millions of people "exiting"..?

If the human race is that deplorable to you, go live in a cave away from them.

Thanks for the post OP..

As i have always championed,the dramatic rise in meteorites over the past years, is due to the fact that Planet X is inbound and what we are experiencing is the orbiting debris of this object/s,as it is ever closing in and it is doing the rounds past the Sun as we speak.

Something else to ponder on, is the other fact that even though our records show an enormous spike in frequency of these objects (on land) our planet is mainly water..so how many have gone unnoticed??

We have a lot of scenarios coming our way and it is inevitable that we will get hit by a big one soon,just a matter of time,the media is subtly preparing the masses for 'the announcement' i.e. Planet X and also recently instilling notions of meteor strikes in the public psyche..they know it's coming..so should you Guys..

On this video, villagers reported "sand" or "dust" fallen on top of their houses after the explosion. Hmmm...



In this other one, you can hear the explosion :

I'm already in a cave heffe, so I don't get bombed by any
exciting meteorites.


But hey, nice post!

That bush is the Nicaraguan capital city? Do they live in tents?

Yes thousands or possibly even millions of them.
And they're so deplorable!

Awesome you were able to dig up that video of the fireball and explosion, Trueman, thanks- let's hope that's real audio, and not dubbed off some efx CD. The first video also confirmed for me (I speak Spanish) the time of this explosion, which further reinforces that the spectro/waveform is correct- for there were no other signatures whatsoever on that station at that time to confuse the issue- and believe me, that could have easily happened. Also, there were no other working stations (that the public at large has access to, that is) I could find anywhere close that registered the strike at all, except the one I posted, MASN.NU.

btw, you guys may have noticed that I only posted the BHZ channel data. Well since, I also went and pulled the horizontal component channels, and yup, it's there- and even more visible slightly on one of those. Maybe later I'll post a combined pic of all three.

Also, as to why I don't grant use privileges on that photo for the person that asked, is simply because some things are only available at ATS. My resulting work in this case is one of them- I don't want it shared. Consider it a "being-a-member thing." We try to stay a cut above- and I don't often succeed- case in point, my last thread ended up in the HOAX bin- and I hate that. But with over 1500 threads authored, I just can't win em all.
Occasionally I can contribute with my seismic data knowledge- so hope I have here.

Some days I realise how little I know about anything and I feel like hiding. Now off to google 'Niacaragua'.

Eh don't think you're copyright claim would stand up given the nature of the image and the fact that its an image of computer generated image. Either way, I'd argue that the copyright loopholes of 'fair use' and 'public interest' override your copyright in this case.

Glad to know that info helped


I wonder if someone took samples of the sand/dust on top of the houses, in case it could affect the health of the villagers, before they touch it.

Well just remember how I got owned for saying a meteorite
is pretty exciting. So at least you won't suffer the same humiliation
I've just had to endure!

LMAO

I edited my post above, please see it.

Heh, well if that image is so easy to produce, then please, be my guest. Make your own, with your own knowledge and rig, and share it with the world! There are a couple people around here that could do similar, or even better. Great, let em. I'm trying to keep it in house.

If it was from Asteroid RC 2014, or not, it is truly a bit weird. The fact that 2014 RC was discovered end of August, AND all of a sudden we get a hit, and an entry [Spain] the following day proves to me that as man we cannot put our trust in science of man.

And if they knew it had a good chance hitting, or would very well hit earth, well..
