December 8, 2011 – SPACE – Earth was hit by a small fireball-storm. Ranging in size from microscopic space dust to mountainous asteroids, trillions of meteoroids zing through the inner solar system on a daily basis. What are the odds that five of them would cross the same point in space? Pretty good, actually. In fact, it happened just last night. These are the orbits of five objects that hit Earth on the night of Dec. 7/8. NASA’s All Sky Fireball Network recorded the meteoroids as they disintegrated in the atmosphere over the United States, each one producing a bright fireball. Note how all the orbits converge on a single point–our planet.The Geminid meteor shower is supposed to peak December 13-14. NASA has not said if these latest fireballs are part of that shower. –Space Weather
