Pan back to page 1 of this thread. There are several links.

Now why would a meteor hitting Norway, trigger an earthquake in Scotland? Shouldn't the impact have registered in Norway? None of the monitoring sites I watch report any seismic activity there at all. Very strange.

Tromso being a very important location as well. You would think more noise would have been made.

The peopel at NORSAR, the scientific organization reported to have detected the impact through seismographs, has responded.

They have directed me to a norwegian language webpage that has more information:
jordskjelv.no...

They stated that they don't know if an impact has been confirmed, but that experts have been saying it must've been a meteor.

I have no idea what it says on the site.

ARCES might be where their seismograph station is.

Here is another one of their pages:
www.astro.uio.no...

It has the same seismograph readout, perhaps the picture is the meteor itself.


This page:
jordskjelv.no...

Seems to show other seismic events in the region, though I don't know if they are all impacts or what.


BIGUP to Norsar for responding so quickyl! Usually these emails get nowhere.


Working on this one...

Only on ATS could a common occurrence like a meteor strike be construed as a cover up of some sort. Could it possibly be that this seemingly well documented event was just as reported? A simple meteor strike? Perhaps it was actually a failed preemptive strike by George Bush on Norway? But then maybe, just maybe, it was a meteor strike? No, Couldn’t be! Could it?

I didn't think it was so seemingly well "REPORTED" however. Still haven't seen anything on the news about it, although someone said Clinton News Network finally had a small ticker or something about a reward if found.

I think the recent events in Irag may have overshadowed this story. On a slow news week it probably would have gotten more coverage. I don't think the major news sources are monitoring the Norway press. Nothing to exciting happening there. I witnessed one much larger than this as a child and when I mentioned the story here it got no response to speak of. The only mention of the one I saw in the 60's was an article on the web by someone lying about the event to make it out as a UFO. That one was the estimated to be the size of a car and hit north of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. I'd like to see more stories of this type in the news. I find it a lot more interesting than peoples political views. I was not intentionaly trashing this thread and I'm sorry if it came out that way. I'm never bored by the what I read here on this board.

I think this is much more common than we think. The Earth is mostly ocean and only a small portion of the land is populated. I read recently that only 5% of North America is developed. Most strikes probably go unreported or noticed.

I never thought you were trashing the thread.

It should had made global news, that thing is a huge thing that happened, is it really true? The first site you linked looks like a crap site, but the other looks official, but is it true? Or is something being hidden or WTF?

It appears to be true. It was just an uneventful meteor strike. All the details are in the article. It was just not a big enough news story to trump the news from Iraq. There will probably be more detailed stuff after they have had a chance to gather samples and study the results of the impact.

Proof is seeing an unedited picture of destruction of impact area, sorry I should have been more clear.....

The following story comes from a Norwegian newspaper called Aftenposten, and includes a pic of the impact site:


Residents of the Norwegian county of Nord-Troms were shaken when a meteorite struck the valley of Reisadalen last week. Experts are debating its impact, but they've found the site where it hit the ground.


Here's where the meteorite hit

There might not have even been an impact, it might've just exploded in the atmosphere.

Scientists at seismograph stations in Norway detected the event and beleive its a meteor, probably an impact. People saw a meteor streaking through the sky at the same time.

Hi. My first post here, interesting place


There seems to be a slight misunderstanding about the comet impact. Ødegaard says it "could" have had the same energy as one hiroshima bomb, remember the explosion, it shatterd into pieces before impact and so forth the impact itself would be less powerfull. Also Ødegaard said it would have cooled down before impact , hence, there´s no burned out impact site, only rock were bumped around.

Why do you want to see it with Google Earth?

The pictures used by Google Earth are at least some months old.

Also, only the places they think are worthy of it get the high resolution photos.

But even in these high resolution photos I think we cannot have enough detail to see the effects of something like this.


'Some' of Google Earths pictures are a few years old..!!

Welcome to the strangest and most interesting board you will ever see.

A comet and a Meteor are two different things. A meteorite is a meteor after it hits ground. A comet is a ball of ice and debris.

You will find that ordinary events have a way of getting blown up out of proportion around this place. I expected George Bush to be blamed for this


You may want to look up recent posts about a comet that broke up and passed by us. I think the interest here is due to that. It is remotely possible this is related. There are people here who are experts on such things and there posts are very informative.

Edit: Sorry, missed the pictures already posted. didn't see that last page before I clicked reply.

Anyway, here's another site detailing the exageration of the initial reports.

Space Weather News for June 16, 2006
spaceweather.com...

NORWEGIAN FIREBALL: A spectacular fireball that flew over Norway last
week, causing sonic booms and making the ground shake when a meteorite
presumably hit the ground, was not quite as spectacular as first
reported. Researchers now estimate the kinetic energy of the event as 300
tons of TNT, far short of the Hiroshima-like blast described in some news
reports.

Space rocks with this much energy hit Earth more often than is commonly
supposed--once a month or so. Most go unnoticed because they enter the
atmosphere over uninhabited stretches of our planet, or during broad
daylight when fireballs are difficult to see, or at late hours of the
night when would-be sky watchers are asleep. This one was seen (and by
some accounts felt), so it made a bigger "splash" than usual. Searchers
are still scouring the countryside for possible fragments of the
meteorite.

MARS AND SATURN: After passing through the Beehive star cluster last
night, Mars is on a collision course with Saturn--at least it looks that
way. The two planets will not collide, but they will have a pleasing
close encounter in the evening sky on Saturday night, June 17th. Look
west after sunset.

Visit spaceweather.com... for sky maps and further information.
