Translation from google translate:


Said Jewel FM radio that a large space meteorite has just landed in the south of Tunisia specifically in a desert area depopulated in Remada COR of the mandate of Tataouine and had heard a huge 3 loud explosions in the area.

This moved on the spot and units of the National Guard and the military to investigate and preview the meteor as confirmed by Maral Jewel FM




That is translated from this secondary link:

I did a google search for Meteor in Tunisia and the first thing that came back was this thread right here on ATS. The picture is stunning, looks like when Space Shuttle Colombia exploded, however I'm pretty sure thats not a photo of the actual event (the picture on the ORIGINAL website is obviously an illustration). Until there is some further info YOU are google's go to source on this, which I find hilarious being that at this time this thread had no stars, flags, or even replies.
I did learn one interesting fact from this however: there is a place called Tatouaine in Tunisia, the actual film location where George Lucas filmed Tattooine (also in Tunisia) is not too terribly far far away.

Thanks for the info TA...I find this quite interesting.

I ran across a thread earlier talking about 5 different comets, not the same thing, I know, However, I can't help but wonder if all the comets have companions? Or, a debris field we are crossing.

The internet helps us get information faster these days, I guess. It is just strange that we are hearing about more of them these days. Internet or not....ya know???

S & F


ETA: the first one does look like a stock photo, don't know about the second. Still interesting.....

Seems like those UFOs are working extra hard these days protecting us from these meteors. They are the heroes we need, but don't deserve.

On a serious note, at this point I think we've passed the point of all these meteors being mere coincidences. Are we traveling through a meteor cloud, or perhaps changing magnetic fields of celestial bodies in our neighborhood is attracting meteors. Either way we have to stay vigilant at this point and carefully observe the sky and prepare as necessary.

I did a google image search and that particular photo has been used over and over again claiming it's from anywhere from East Germany in 2009 to San Fransico in 2011 to Tunisia in 2013. Thats just page one it may even go back further.

Yeah, thanks for contributing that pic. I was wondering too if these are all stock photos. I have no idea if this story is true. I just saw it on another site, and seemed interesting. Maybe we'll hear more about it soon. Maybe we won't. Dunno.

I did go to google and did my own translation of the links, so that much I can assure you is real.

I still don't see anything other than those initial articles. Someone posted those same article links to godlikeproductions.com, but no articles in English.

It would be nice to confirm this from a larger source. I guess I will just have to be patient while MSM catches up.

Thats the pic from the site that posted the story. As more sites are starting to report this there is no additional info AT ALL. What we have on this now may be all we get.

There may be something to the impression that the number of meteor events have taken a sharp increase recently. According to the American Meteor Society the number of reported meteor "events" are as follows for the past ten years:

2005- 467
2006- 517
2007- 591
2008- 730
2009- 696
2010- 954
2011- 1632
2012- 2142
2013- 1955 (to date)

Now, the site doesn't say whether these are confirmed individual events, but the numbers suggest something unusual to me.

The AMS site has this to say about the numbers:



Circumstances effecting the number of reports and events collected by the AMS
There are circumstances affecting the data collected by the AMS that should be understood to prevent misinterpretation regarding the change of fireballs reported.

From January 2005 through December 2010 the AMS fireball reports system was based on the same data collection form and process created by Bob Lunsford in 2005.
In December 2010 the AMS fireball reporting system was upgraded to a database google maps system developed by Mike Hankey and company.
The new software made it much easier for witnesses to file reports and resulted in more witnesses successfully reporting events.
Internet traffic on the AMS site has increased since 2005. In current years, more people are connected with mobile devices, laptops and computers than ever before. This leads to more people reporting fireballs.
At least one huge event with over 100+ reports in 2009 was space trash, and there was at least 1 space trash event for 2012. The graph of 100+ events has not been adjusted to account for space trash.
A percentage of reports received are cloud contrails, planes, sun dogs or phenomenon other than fireball meteors. These reports are deleted when detected and generally tend to be events reported by only one witness.
In November 2012, the AMS fireball reporting software was upgraded again and this upgrade resulted in an immediate increase of reports received. It is believed that improvements to the user interface lessened the amount of form abandonment and other training issues that may have kept witnesses from successfully logging events on the previous version.

No, the increase in numbers is just because more people know about the site, or some other gooblygook like that according to some on here.

I can see your logic on that one.......and yes, just wait, someone will.

Can we remember in Feburary of this year, we had an asteroid/meteor that was to pass below what our satellites orbit the earth? It was not supposed to cause a problem.......and we had a meteorite hit Russia. The same day. And No One was watching this meteor? Hmmmmm........

I had seen something on RT, that the Meteor is part of a family of meteors. Like 5 or 6 more are on the same trajectory as the one that hit Russia.

Sorry got off topic........

Cheesy, or anyone for that matter, Can someone explain to a dense person, WHY the church is so into subject? When I found out the Vatican had an observatory, I was perplexed.

Not sure why you are perplexed, but according to the Vatican the observatory is used to explore God's handiwork.


From the observatory FAQ:


Why is the Vatican interested in astronomy?
Initially it was for a practical reason, to reform the Julian Calendar, like so many national observatories that were started, e.g., to improve navigation at sea; later at the establishment of the present form of the Vatican Observatory in 1891, for an apologetic purpose, in the sense of defending the Catholic Church's positive regard for science; now to join in doing good science in a way that is possible, given the Vatican's other concerns, as part of the consequence that the Incarnation of Christ applies to all human activity.

It would seem to me, they would be more interested in the bible, than seeing into space, Although, signs in the heavens shall appear....yadda, yadda......Ok, got your point. if you say so.
