08NOV2012 Tim Hunter Fort Collins, Co USA 11:30 pm mst 4-7 seconds Direction was from sw to ne Very bright , cutting torch right l Very Yes , only at the end Nope

08NOV2012 April Medley Clovis, New Mexico, USA 23:00 Mountain Time 20 seconds Start above my house went from South to North I was facing North White flash then saw a large falling "fireball" which had many large and visible fragments, latent visual trail was visible for about 20 seconds. Very unusual and large, seemed close. 5 minutes later I heard a large "boom" in the direction the body traveled. White light like other stars but brighter than all others I could see. Yes No, eye witness event.

08NOV2012 L. Cronin Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA 22:59 Mountain Standard Time ~3 Facing due south, event traveled N-S Bright green streak in sky, no sound heard in car Brighter than the moon Not noticed Streak almost vertical

08NOV2012 shannon cornett coolidge az mountain time AZ 10:58pm quickly 4-5 seconds i was driving east and it went from my right to left glowing green bright green flouresant, was in vehicle so didnt hear sound almost like sparks very bright green yes looked like sparks falling off glowing green light i can draw what it lookef like or similar!

08NOV2012 Dee Asheville, NC 8:50pm est 5 sec E-W Facing south Light green hue Moon No From 300ft saw fall area. 14 acre empty area.

08NOV2012 William Mull MAIDEN, NC, USA 20:40:00 2.5 sec E-W facing south Bright white Very bright Long tail It appeared to be on a downward trajectory. One of the largest I personally have ever seen.

08NOV2012 Love Dearth Spring Hill,FL,USA 8:40 PM Eastern Standard 3-5 seconds E-W, Right To Left, Facing North Bright looking ball with good trail. Looked awfully close. No noise Moon No Either largest or closest I have ever seen

The applet was implemented using 2-body methods, and hence should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances. For accurate long-term ephemerides, please instead use our Horizons system.


Just so that everyone is aware of it from the start.

Ho I'm prety sure most member did read it on the first two picture I posted
and has nothing to do with my question.
It been over 6 year since the last warning I'm prety sure they see more but do not inform us
if they think it going to hit.

From

Those two NEOs are asteroids, large enough to be spotted in a telescope. The other link describes meteors, small pebble-sized or even sand-grain-sized rocks that only become visible when they burn up in the atmosphere.

JPL gets its data from the Minor Planet Center (MPC), and they in turn get the data from thousands of astronomers (amateur as well as professional) all around the world. When a new object is found, the data is passed around the astronomical community so that it could be verified. You can't keep these celestial bodies secret.

For example, the MPC pages on these two NEOs give a list of the observatories that discovered or confirmed them:
www.minorplanetcenter.net...
www.minorplanetcenter.net...

Those are pretty small (approx 7 meters and 13 meters in diameter respectively) and could only be spotted because they came so close to Earth. Even at this close distance, they are fainter than Pluto. This just shows that it's not that easy to spot these "visitors".

Exactly what wildespace said.

Most fireball causing meteoroids are surprisingly small and difficult to spot when they are not in the process of entering our atmosphere.

The event in Sudan 2008 was a lucky one off event, but I'm sure it will become more common in the future as technology improves.

Well this one sound more like a asteroids than a meteorite

Sounds like a meteor up to 1 meter in size. For a comparison, a 5-meter object would explode with a force of a small nuclear bomb. It doesn't take a very big object to produce a bright fireball with some fragments.
