Meteor fireball spotted over Tucumán, Argentina - 14 April 2014

Translated from Spanish by Sott.net

An alleged meteor fireball passed through the Argentinian sky during the morning, causing surprise and amazement among those who were able to observe the phenomenon. The incident occurred just after 7am local time, with witnesses writing on social networks about the event.

Apparently, and as seen in the picture, it was a small object - up to one centimeter- that due to the speed with which it enters the earth, burns and vaporizes, causing a large luminosity.

Residents in Rudloe have heralded the estate "the new Roswell", after several people reported seeing a strange object in the sky last Sunday.

Jo Collier was among those who saw a burning orange light in the sky shortly after 8pm, and likened it to the infamous UFO incident in New Mexico in 1947, which sparked numerous conspiracy theories.

She said: "I was at my mum's in Rudloe and my other half came running up the road shouting there was something falling out of the sky.

"It was like this big orange glow, absolutely huge, and the tail was bright, bright orange.

Blazing fireball spotted in the sky above Arizona, 12 April 2014

Officials were searching areas near Globe and Superior after agencies received calls Saturday night about an orange fireball that shot through the air and crashed to the ground.

Officials with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and the Arizona Department of Public Safety said the agencies had been getting numerous calls from people reporting they'd seen a glowing ball streak across the sky.

DPS said they were checking the areas near State Route 87, Anthem and the Four Peaks.

A spokeswoman with the Pinal County Sheriff's Office said they had received reports of a fiery object being spotted east of the Superstition Mountains.

SOTT Video Summary: Planetary Upheaval and High Strangeness in March 2014

Signs of the Times in March 2014

The third installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during March 2014, connecting the dots between planetary upheaval, social upheaval, and 'cosmic weather' in the form of meteor fireball activity.

The month opened with wild waves hitting the West coast of both the U.S. and Europe, while a string of strong earthquakes 'ripped' the whole length of the Ring of Fire along the Americas. The so-called 'Polar Vortex' returned as much of North America was again plunged into a deep freeze in what seemed like the winter that would never end. Despite suffering both drought and wildfires in February, Washington state was hit with a deluge in March that caused a devastating landslide and claimed 20 lives.

Several serious explosions in apartment complexes occurred in both the U.S. and Europe. Ruptured gas pipelines are assumed to be the cause, but officially they remain unexplained. Interestingly, one of the month's many large urban environment sinkholes opened right outside the Harlem explosion that killed 8, and investigators found unusually high levels of natural methane gas in soil samples from the scene, suggesting localized methane outgassing may have played a role in the buildings' sudden obliteration.

Extreme drought was blamed for a massive die-off of animals in Colombia, yet there was record flooding in neighboring Bolivia. California somehow experienced record drought, record rainfall and record wildfires all in the same month... along with a rare tornado that damaged homes. The weird 'winter wildfire' season continued, with hundreds of wildfires breaking out across the U.S., even as the country was plunged into another deep freeze and battered with heavy rainfall from strong storms. Meanwhile a once rare event, but now occurring several times annually, saw another large tornado hit northern Italy on 23 March.

As meteor fireballs lit up the night sky in Canada, Korea and Central Europe, rare hailstorms hit the Middle East, India and South China, and high drama continued in Ukraine as Crimeans told Obama what they thought of the idea of joining the Western empire by voting to rejoin Russia instead.

In what could well be the most incredible High Strangeness event of the year, an entire commercial plane carrying over 200 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing apparently vanished into thin air. Despite many false leads into what might have happened, to date there is no evidence of the plane having crashed or been hijacked...

Signs of change: Extreme weather, seismic activity, and meteor fireballs in March and early April 2014


Comment: More rain in California in one day than it got in the past year, a record cold winter in the U.S., a "1 in 100 years" flooding event in New Zealand, a meteor explosion that shook homes in New Mexico, giant hailstones in places that don't usually get any hail, record earthquakes in California, the Andaman Islands and all along the Ring of Fire, two meteor fireballs lighting up the East coast of Canada and northern U.S. states in the space of 24 hours, landslides and flash-flooding putting out wildfires in Western U.S. states, and the "worst flooding in living memory" on the Solomon Islands (at the same time as a strong earthquake)...

The following video compilation is a sample of just some of the planetary upheaval recorded in the last month.

Visit HawkkeyDavis's Youtube channel to check out the rest of his awesome work chronicling the 'signs of the times'.



The world has been overwhelmed with disasters in recent weeks. A series of fireballs and earthquakes has rocked and shaken this planet to its core. Meanwhile, the "one-in-100-year events" continue to strike...

Even though it looks like it sometimes, this series does not mean the world is ending! These are documentaries of series of extreme weather events that are leading to bigger earth changes. If you are following the series, then you are seeing the signs.

ANOTHER meteor explodes above home of Star Wars, just 6 months after the first fireball event hit Tataouine, Tunisia


The Tatahouine meteorite which fell on June 27, 1931 at 1:30 am in Foum Tatahouine, Tunisia.
Translated from Italian by Sott.net

As reported by ANSA, a meteorite crashed in Tunisia causing a strong acoustic phenomenon (bang) experienced especially by the population in the south. It hit the town of Remada, located in Tataouine. At the moment scientists have not specified what triggered it or where the meteorite came from, but research is ongoing. In all probability, the crater formed by the impact occurred in the desert area, where soldiers were headed for verification.

This is yet another episode of meteors and meteorites all over the world that are occurring in a short span of time. The media coverage of these type of events gives the impression that they are on sharp increase.

Comment: It's interesting to note that this is not the first time a loud meteor explosion has been felt in Tataouine, Tunisia: Meteor strikes Tatouine, home of Star Wars

My wife came home at about 23:10 CEDST from playing cards
with her "girls" and this is what she told me ... and she was very
excited: "I was on my way to our car when something suddenly lit up the
Eastern sky. It was dazzling bright, had a greenish color, apparent
diameter ca. 2 inches, color greenish, duration seveal seconds, length
of luminous train (apparently 50-60 cm). She and her "girls" heard no
sonic boom." Location: Mannheim - Rheinau (Rheinau is a place about 10 km east
of Mannheim). Best wishes, Bernd Thanks Bernd!

Fireball seen over Jutland, Denmark

A powerful fireball was observed over Denmark at around 1 am on Sunday morning (30th of March 2014). The fireball has perhaps let to the fall of meteorites in the Western parts of Jutland.

The fireball was observed by several witnesses. The fireball was captured on cameras, that watch the nights sky in order to register possible meteorite falls.

The fireball captured by a camera from the Orion Planeteriet at Jels in Jutland.
A couple of people have also heard a sonic boom in connection with the fireball. Sonic booms are rather special and unusual which makes this fireball somewhat special.

The thought that there might be recoverable meteorites is based on these sonic booms. Earlier cases of recovered meteorites have almost always been connected with the sonic booms.

The sonic booms are interesting as they can be used to narrow down where a possible meteor might have fallen. We would therefore like to hear from people, who might have heard the sonic booms over the western parts of Jutland in the night between Saturday and Sunday, says Henning Haack, lecturer at the State Museum for Natural Sciences.

Below is a video of the fireball:
