OK, Now an object supposedly the size of a Whale, falls or crashes into a lake and they only cruse up and down the lake in a boat looking for wreckage.
On-one has dived the lake, how about side scan sonar?

I understand that they want to blame this on a meteor falling into the lake.
A State Trooper called into his dispatcher and thought something had landed about 10 miles from him.

Don't you think this needs to be investigated further,,,,, ( deeper )?

state trooper and a motorist reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield, Conn. -- a green, glowing, whale-sized object that plunged into Litchfield Lake. State authorities said no go; they failed to locate anything mysterious.

Green and Glowing?

But science may have the answer: According to the National Weather Service, there was a meteor shower that morning, WTNH.com reported. Read more: www.foxnews.com...

If it was the size of a whale and was incoming at meteor
speeds then the wave from the lake should have been rather massive.

If there was no wave then it was not a big meteor, or it could have been something worthy of
investigation.

Was thinking the same, a meteor the size of a whale falling at a couple hundered mph would do some significant damage?

It would traveling at a couple of thousand feet per second perhaps even faster.
I'm not an expert at incoming objects, but they are way way way faster than hundreds of miles an hour.

Says bantam lake has a maximum depth of twenty three feet.

Bantam Lake

Would depend how much it was slowed by entry into our atmosphere I guess. I said 200 odd miles an hour because I think thats terminal velocity.

Whatever it is its went from a ufo to a uso!

Sure,, it would of made a very large crater, don't you think?
Do you think the Bar's had just closed and the motorist was on their why home with one two many

Small meteorites that mostly break up in the atmosphere slow down considerably as they break up. Most that hit the ground are only going "terminal velocity", or only a couple of hundred miles an hour. The question is: if it was a meteor, was it really whale-sized, or was the witness over-estimating the size.

If it's only 23 feet deep then I can't imagine the water displacement would have been that great. Sure a nice size wave I'd think, but if it was falling that fast and was that hot would it not vaporize the water almost instantly to the max depth on impact without creating much of a wave that would travel far? I would think a deep water impact would allow for a larger wave. Will be interesting to hear what they pull up. I would think a salvage crew could easily get to it and it would have great interest from the scientific community as well as probably bring a hefty check for the one that salvages it.

Nice find!

Ummmm yeah...

If it is a meteorite, I would expect that people would be searching day and night for it, until they found it.

Meteorites can bring in big money when sold... If this incident was a meteor crashing into a lake, I highly suggest that anybody in the surrounding area go and find the thing. Based on the apparent size, from the reports, whoever was to retrieve this supposed meteorite could bring home a descent amount of money.

If this isn't already underway(a massive hunt), then I would suggest that this story is false. Either false, or people apparently have no idea that a metaphoric 'chunk of gold' just landed in their backyard.

23 feet
is that all?
A meteor would have hit the mud bottom and made One He^^ of a mess!
Do you think it actually hit the lake or landed near by?
I would have to believe it landed.

That'd be great, as long as you don't have any missing time episodes or feel like you've been PROBED!


If so, please tell us all about it.


Be Safe.

You can feel free to leave out the stories about missing time episodes, but I feel that I talk for all of ATS when I say that all elaborate stories in regards to PROBING will be surely welcomed!

Ok. (English is not my first language, sorry about any grammar mistakes)

So I decided to play a little with the possible outcome of a whale-sized meteor. ( Try yourself )

Assuming a 65 ft (blue whales = 98 ft) iron/metallic asteroid and 11 km/s velocity (based on a little google research and considering a best case scenario or a less damaging one) . Here are some results;

Energy:

Energy before atmospheric entry: 2.03 x 1015 Joules = 484.32 KiloTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 169.6 years

Air Blast:

The air blast will arrive approximately 30.6 seconds after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 9450 Pa = 0.0945 bars = 1.34 psi
Max wind velocity: 21.4 m/s = 47.9 mph
Sound Intensity: 80 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)
Damage Description:

Glass windows will shatter.


------------------

I'm no specialist, but I REALLY don't think this is a meteor. The huge impact and sound blast would have draw a lot more attention.
