Fire in the Sky: SOTT Summary of Meteor Fireballs in 2013




Meteor Fireballs in 2013

The following video is a 6 minute compilation of footage of the major meteor sightings from 2013, as well as a list of many more fireball events over the course of last year.

Since at least 2005, there has been an alarming increase in the number and frequency of meteors and fireballs in the skies of our planet and meteorite detonations and impacts on the surface, and the trend seems to indicate that these events will continue to increase in number and severity.

By combining these events in the below video, we hope to offer our readers a more vivid and shocking picture of what is really going on above our heads, and counteract the efforts of the mainstream media to downplay what is clearly a very serious threat to the future of human civilization.

We urge you to share this video far and wide.

Roanoke, Texas couple find meteorites from Friday's meteor fireball

Wayne and Darla Janca of Roanoke believe they discovered fragments of a meteor that fell to earth near their home on January 24, 2014


It started as the search for a needle in an interplanetary haystack.

Could Wayne and Darla Janca of Roanoke find what came flying through the sky on Friday night?

They and untold others saw the meteor on their drive home from dinner in Southlake. Some even captured the glowing meteor on video as it shot through the atmosphere.

"We both looked at each other and said, 'That looks like it hit pretty close to home," said Darla Janca.

After a good night's sleep, Wayne and his wife followed their hunch.

"The next day we went out and were looking in the dirt, seeing if we can find anything," Wayne said. "Right before we gave up, I looked down at my foot and there it was! It looked like liquid metal melted into the ground."

The discovery was made in Roanoke, not far from the Jancas' home. But what they dug up may have traveled millions of miles to get here.

On the second day of 2014, a small asteroid blew up high in Earth's atmosphere. It was relatively harmless - the rock was only a couple of meters across, far too small to hit the ground or do any real damage - and it disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean anyway.

What's cool is that now we know for sure this is the case: Infrasound detectors designed to listen for nuclear bomb detonations actually heard the explosion from the impact and were able to pinpoint the location of the event to a few hundred kilometers east off the coast of Venezuela.

NASA put together a nice informative video explaining it.

'Unexplained loud jolting booms' shake homes in Kentucky and Illinois


File photo
For the past two days in a row, people in the Local 6 area have reported hearing loud, jolting booms.

It's one of our most popular stories on facebook. The story we first posted Saturday night has more than 500 comments from people who say they have all heard and felt the same thing in counties across western Kentucky and southern Illinois. Public safety officials are trying to figure out what's causing the noise while people brace themselves for the next big boom.

Leon Cunningham has been living in Livingston County for more than 25 years and says he's familiar with the sights and sounds in his neighborhood. But, over the weekend, he heard something different. He said, "It was just... boom! I mean, you could hear it. It was loud." It was also jarring. "It just shook this whole neighborhood and shook all these houses. In here, stuff rattled on the shelves."

After all the trinkets settled, the rumors started. "Everybody was coming out in the neighborhood wondering what's going on. I've even had people say, 'Are we being invaded?'" One of many questions that there aren't any answers for yet. "We have no idea if there's going to be another one this evening, today, this afternoon, or what. We don't know how long this is going to continue or anything. Nobody does," said Cunningham.

Fiery object spotted in sky over Dillon, Montana


A Dillon resident snapped a photo of a fireball in the sky just before 8:00 a.m Tuesday morning. Ruth Jackson of Dillon spoke to NBC Montana over the phone and says she had no idea what she was looking at, so she pulled over to take a photo.

"We were driving east on Helena St. in Dillon and the sun hadn't come up yet but there was this bright thing in the sky and I said to my husband, "What is that?" said Jackson.

She was a passenger in the car along with her husband and two granddaughters. They were on their way to drop the girls off at school when they stopped to take the picture.

"I am always looking for something to take a picture of, but this was just awesome," said Jackson.

We showed the photos to the MSU Space Grant Consortium and met with Director Angela Des Jardins. She weighed in and tells us what they appear to be at first glance.

Bright fireball captured on video as it lights up night sky over Puerto Rico, 18 January 2014

A brilliant fireball was seen yesterday from Puerto Rico and was observed from all around the Caribbean Island. "It was so bright that the intense light saturated our sky cameras", reports Eddie Irizarry from Sociedad de Astronomia del Caribe. Irizarry says the huge meteor can be seen illuminating his backyard and personal observatory at the end of a video. Images also show a smoke trail left behind by the small space rock, which took several seconds to dissipate.
