The alarm sounded when inhabitants of a mountainous region of Sinaloa state near the border with Chihuahua were startled by the approach of a luminous object in the night sky. NASA and Mexican emergency services agencies confirmed that the object was a meteorite

I don't think this has been posted as yet but will definitely be of some interest here.
Mexico seems to get all this action lately. Didn't they get hit by Russian space junk in 2010? There are also thread about UFO's, stargates above mexico, scientists packing up and leaiving the mexican coast and now this.

Nothing to see here though according to NASA,

Also love the RSOE description for this type of event.

'Event into space'

No, that's not normal. Government never spends money and resources looking for a meteorite. Especially Mexico.


They likely think it's a satellite from some country. Could have technology of interest or a plutonium 238 power pack.

officials said Friday. The alarm sounded when inhabitants of a mountainous region of Sinaloa state near the border with Chihuahua were startled by the approach of a luminous object in the night sky.

Hmm, I wonder if this has something to do with it? The date is right.

HAMPTON, Va. -- The final water landing test of the Orion crew capsule has been re-scheduled for Friday, Jan. 6, at NASA's Langley Research Center's Hydro Impact Basin in Hampton, Va. The test was originally scheduled to take place Thursday, Jan. 5, but a combination of wind and cold weather conditions prohibited pre-test operations atop the gantry.

Well they are not looking for it because it has any value...that is certain...other than mineral identification...monetarily though...it is almost worthless!


Meteorite prices vary from one source to another but the numbers quoted here are typical of retail values in today’s marketplace. Unclassified stone chondrites picked up by nomads wandering in the Sahara Deserts are readily available for about $0.50/gram. Attractive stones from the Gao-Guenie witnessed fall (Burkina Faso, Africa, March 5, 1960) can be purchased for about $1.50/gram and a top quality one-kilogram specimen of the Campo del Cielo iron meteorite from Chaco Province, Argentina can be yours for about $400.
