Fireball spotted at the last hour in the skies of southern Italy


www.utaot.com

few minutes ago, at 19:18 , a bright fireball was spotted in the skies of southern Italy. The first reports from the Strait of Messina reported a fireball on the Ionian Sea , with director from north to south, greenish and very bright magnitude. We are awaiting further reports that allow us to understand the scope of the sighting

What is with all these fireballs. There seems like a lot of them coming down of recent.

First we had DA14 pass and on the same day a metorites fall on Russia. Next we get sightings from Cuba, USA and Saudi Arabia.

I find it odd that DA14 was a near miss on the same day we got a hit and why has the US government decided to classify earth bound objects.

The skies really seem to lighting up these days....

another meteor heading from north to south, somebody should point their telescope skyward looking north to see if there are anymore of these things out there.

I didn't find any news regarding the fireball, however I found a picture of one in Italy on Feb. 18, 2011. It was pretty big, so it seems as they're not as uncommon as some may think. I would love to see one.

Strange so many coming in though, that does seem uncommon, but I digress. I have no idea.

It was clearly lense flare. And even if it WAS real, it must not be that implrtant because I didnt see it on the msm. In fact, thats exactly how you can tell it ISNT real. No msm, no real.

Who are you gonna believe, the msm or yer lyin eyes?

I disagree entirely, but also respectfully.


See, I don't for a second think we've had any increase of meteor or "fireball" activity, I'm yet to see proof of this anyway, but instead what I do think is happening is people's awareness on the subject has suddenly increased. It's as simple as that really. See, we had the great, big Russian meteor strike, you know, the ver one which produced the awesome sky show which had the news talking for days on end, providing endless videos and images etc...

Now, In the aftermath of this, we've also see more threads and more discussion take place on the subject? Does that point to an increase of activity? No, not necessarily, it's pointing towards - quite clearly, in my opinion - nothing but people simply looking out for it more, now that they've seen a major perhaps even once in a lifetime one.

That's what It seems like to me. So no, no increase of activity, just more awareness and more people reporting their sightings, and in turn other's taking an interest..

Maybe the comets are more common than we thought... And we are just becoming more aware of them.. Maybe it will be like the 2012 hysteria, instead its comet hysteria... Or maybe the mayans were right

It should be pointed out that that image is from 2009.

Evidently the image is illustrative in purpose.. The OP never stated that the image was of that particular fireball spotted. Do you know if it is common to have so many meteorites crashing to the ground..? And is it possible that they could be coming from the same source..?

Phage, are you a computer bot or something? How do you find photos that quickly? This isn't the first time you've settled one of these threads by pointing out the true source of a photo. Good job.

Someone was bound to say that. It seems to be the go to explination for all things unexplainible lately. I wonder though, if one of these comes crashing down and destroys your neighborhood, will you still stick with this story?

No it isn't.
In fact this spectacular image is often recycled.

It is easy to find photos you can search an image in google in the image section. I do not understand how you think this settles the thread. There are reports coming in of a fireball over Italy. No one ever said the image was from italy. People use pictures like eye candy..

I didn't say he did.

Did the one in Italy hit the ground? Fireballs are a lot more common than you may think.


And is it possible that they could be coming from the same source..

Not likely. Unless by "source" you mean "out there."

If there was something strange going on in the world of meteors, would'nt the meteor/fireball nerds be the first to notice?

Here is couple of sources for sites which are updated daily with meteor activity by people around the world :-)

Some good info here -

Meteor Activity Outlook for February 16-22, 2013

I read that it was also visible in Malta which is not very strange as it is close to the Island of Sicily

I realize that there are thousands of fireballs everyday. In Russia, was it not a bolide? Due to it exploding? I heard it described as a chondritic meteorite, but not sure. In Southern Wisconsin about three years ago a bolide came screaming through and landed in southern MN. All of the older people here had never seen or heard anything like it. Is there an increase in the amount of bolide type asteroids being observed?
