1. Its kinda redundant to post a link to an ATSNN article.

2. It was in New Zealand.

Plus it wasn't the size of a house. Unless there are really small houses in NZ

Actually, a report here confirmed your first comment.



Landing down under: People claiming they saw a "house-sized" meteorite slam into Earth and explode with a flash may actually have seen a small space rock streaking through the atmosphere as it burned up, an astronomer said.

Air traffic controllers on duty at Sydney Airport Tower saw a meteorite but did not give details of its size.

Police said several people just south of Sydney reported seeing a huge meteorite whizzing overhead before exploding. The report that it was the size of a house came from one motorist traveling on a highway about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of the city.

This happened last night. It's different than the one that hit the house.

Maybe Ausse Bloke was on to something :-)

Quote from article:


House-sized' meteorite hits
From news.com.au staff and AAP
June 17, 2004
A METEORITE reportedly the size of a house fell on the NSW south coast overnight, exploding in a bright flash, police have said.

A driver on the Hume Highway shortly after 9pm (AEST) near Menangle reported an object the size of a house falling from the sky.

yeah, I think the poster is refering to the meteor that air-burst over australia yesterday... not the NZ hit.

OK, we know that specifically the AB story was just that, but he did say there would be increased meteor activity...........hmmmmm. Please don't flame, just thinking out loud.

I don't remember ever hearing about so many meteor/bolide strikes in such a short time period... but maybe I just never paid such close attention before....
