I see a lot of people blaming MSM for reporting it wrong. But what is there really to suggest it's not a meteor?

Can anyone help me find out where it landed? I want to go and see what evidence is still there. Thanks.


Did you check-out that video from the dash cam in Iowa?? (Thanks to whoever posted that, by the way). So, it got at least that far (which could be a 1-5 hour drive or more). Also, it might have totally burned-up in the air w/o ever hitting the ground. Who knows? If it landed closer, I'd take the day off an go search for it with you! It's beautiful in Madison today, so it would be a perfect time for an adventure....

This is significant. This object is, was, unlike any meteor we have experienced previously. Something of this size and proximity to earth should have been picked up by observatories days ago. The explosions I believe were due to the speed of the object not an impact. Why has no information been reported about the actual impact site, (if landed), or debris. Something is amiss.

I live in Madison, WI! But I did not see it!
I really wish I did, because it looks like it was quite a sight. I envy those who had the pleasure of seeing such a thing. Man, that was a HUGE flash of light. It looks like the thing EXPLODED.

I have actually seen one of these in the past, but not one quite this big. The one I have seen just looked like someone shot a huge flare gun. This one looks like a fireball that hit the ground and went BOOM.

Thanks for the thread, S&F!

May be it has something to do with the Indian rocket failure. The Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO's) GSLV rocket failed today at around 4.40 pm local Indian time.

They had a perfect take-off and the first two stages performed normally. But the third and final indigenous Cryogenic stage failed at the time of ignition.




India's quest to achieve total independence in cryogenic engine technology failed on Thursday when its Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, GSLV - D3, tumbled into the Bay of Bengal. This happened after the indigenous cryogenic engine ignited on time 304 seconds after the lift-off but the two steering engines of the cryogenic stage appeared not to have ignited.

But not sure, since the article says, it tumbled into Bay of Bengal, near India. Not sure whether it's visible for the other side world's people, the Americans.

What makes you say that? From the video it looks like your typical meteoroid airburst. The fireball is always much bigger than the actual meteoroid itself. I've never seen one in person, and while this is a nice sized one, it doesn't look out of the "ordinary" to me.

Here are 2 videos. One from last night taken in Iowa, and the other from 2007 in Edmonton, Canada:

Let me ask you one question. When is the last time you saw a meteor turn night into day? I have been around the block more than once and have never seen such an occurence. You may want to view the video at wgnradio.com.

Finding one can make you very rich! If you are lucky in your endeavor, I think you should cut me in 5% (or at least buy me a coffee or beer, lol) for being the OP, lol. Good luck!

Not strictly true. The typical meteor you see flash across the sky is nothing more than a grain of dust. Something producing this sort of effect could easily only be, as big as a man's fist by the time it hit the ground.

This is worth a read. science.howstuffworks.com...

Like i said in an earlier post, the video looks almost identical to an incident i was witness to as a teenager in the English Midlands.
