A fiery meteor blazed a trail through the skies this morning, with sightings reported from Christchurch to Rotorua.

Did you see the meteor? Did you take a photograph? Email newstips@stuff.co.nz.


Zoe Battersby was out for an early walk along Jimmy Amers beach in Kaikoura at around 6.10am when she noticed a "very large meteor".

"It was very bright - the size of a streetlight. It looked like it fell into the sea," she said.

Alan Gilmore, resident superintendent of the University of Canterbury Mt John Observatory said meteors enter the atmosphere over New Zealand "several times a year" but he doubted that the rock made it to the ground or water level.

“This meteor is very typical, and often they burn up at about 70kms up. It’s very rare for them to actually land. They are coming into a thicker atmosphere, travelling at 30km a second. The friction is strong and they slow up and start to break up. It’s like throwing a stone at a concrete path,” he said.

Gilmore said as the meteor breaks up, witnesses often see a bright flash known as a 'terminal fireball'.

He said meteors "burning up coming through air - white hot with friction - start to glow". Meteors could be seen from as far as 100kms up and could be seen from almost 1000kms away.

"They are spectacular, often a bright white centre which is the actual rock, - a tiny, brilliant star - with a teardrop-shaped glow that’s brilliant emerald green caused by the oxygen and the radiation coming off the rock," he said.

Gilmore said on the rare occasion that a meteor lands - then becoming known as a meteorite - its arrival is often heralded with a sonic boom caused by the temperature layers that exist closer to the surface, below 60kms.

Because of the range of reported sightings, Gilmore expected the meteor entered the atmosphere somewhere over the North Island.

"The impression of closeness is deceptive. Because they are bright, people think [the meteorite] landed a couple of paddocks away."

This meteorite fell on June 23, 2009 at ~11 pm in southern Arizona. A large fireball was seen from the Mexican border to central Arizona. A friend of mine found pieces less than 48 hours after the fall, so I rushed home from Germany to search. After two weeks, I finally found one of the best stones, a 130 gram flight-oriented specimen covered in flow lines. To date we have found a total of 16 stones weighing a total of 2.5 kilograms.

Sweden Meteorite News- Year of Meteorite Fables-Molly the Dog Strikes a Rock 24AUG09

Kinder Fabel- Molly der Beasthund und Meteoriten
Translated by Thomas Österberg, Sweden
It looks like the dog Hopper now has got a competitor, living in southern Sweden! Her name is Molly.

According to the newspaper Sydsvenska Dagbladet, a meteorite fell down in front of a group of children (and the dog Molly) last week, just outside the small village St.Olof, situated in the Swedish provice of Scania, about 100 km east of Copenhagen.

Heres a link to the article: http://sydsvenskan.se/sverige/article538923/Barn-nara-att-traffas-av-mystisk-flygande-sten.html


I have tried to translate the text content to English.

The children Villmaron Andreas son 9, Linn-Klara Andreas daughter 7, Ebba Larsson 8, and Vinga Andreas daughter 11, were out and went with the family dogs into the grove behind Sankt Olof (in the province of Scania, southernmost Sweden).
They heard a sound, "schwissssss", said Villmaron and shows with his arms how fast the stone damp down, just a few meters in front of them.
"It was like smoke".
When the stone hit the ground, dust and smoke swirled up.
Villmaron first thought it was a branch that had fallen down, but the dog Molly, first got very scared, finally took courage, and sniffed her way to the stone, situated in a hole a few inches down.
It was Molly who found it!
The stone is very black and full of holes. Looks like it was burnt of fire, says Villmaron.
It almost looks like a piece of petrified lava says Villmarons father Andreas Johansson.
The children immediately took the stone with them and run home. They were very excited, says their mother Maja Larsson.
They talked in mouth of each other and told their parents that the rock fell from the sky with a high velocity and how the gravel had whirled up and how scared the dog had been. Then the kids run on to Grandma and Grandpa living in the same village, in order to show them the stone too. When the children had left, their mother Maja started to brood.
"First after a while it went up for me how lucky the children had been. Imagine if anybody of them had been hit by the stone? It could have gone really bad".
The first I found out to do was to call Ystads Allehanda (a local newspaper) says Maja laughing.
Is it really a meteorite? Well the family is convinced that it is! At the official web site of the National Museum of Natural History in Stockholm, we learn that a meteorite will be magnetic.
Maja ties a refrigerator magnet to a sewing thread and holds the magnet next to the stone. The magnet attracts directly to the stone. The shape and colour also corresponds to the description of a meteorite at the National Museum web site. Can it be of any worth wonder Maja tactfully?
But she rapidly concludes that this issue is not important. The stone will be framed and hanged up on the wall, as a memory of an exceptionally event.
First the stone will be sent to the Swedish Museum of Natural History for identification. If it's turns up to is genuine meteorite the story will be even better!

Thomas notes:
The picture of the stone makes me a little bit suspicious. Has some similarities to a piece of slag.
Happy hunting.

LunarMeteorite*Hunter- Thank you Thomas for your kind report!!

Looks like another G Lindfors in Swedish Meteorite History story.
This is at least the third or fourth meteorite fable of the year; Hopper, German School Boy, English Chickens Boy, and now Molly of Sweden.

The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – A piece of the Johnstown Meteorite has again landed in Johnstown.

A small part of the rock from space that fell July 6, 1924, was presented to the Johnstown Historical Society Tuesday night by its owner, Misty McNally.

McNally, a former Johnstown resident who now lives in Kansas City, had the fragment of the meteorite sent to town via the postal service. She marked the package “fragile” and so ensured the meteorite’s second landing was softer than the first.

The 1924 landing startled folks from Johnstown to Mead, as pieces large and small rained upon the area that Sunday afternoon. Small fragments hit roofs like hail, but it was one large chunk that made history. It landed by the entrance of the local cemetery and interrupted the funeral of John Moore. Startled funeral go-ers grabbed the shovel intended to fill in Moore’s grave and ran to unearth the smoldering piece which smashed nearby.

The fact the fall was witnessed by so many and the pieces recovered immediately is a rarity even now. But it was considered as amazing then, and tiny Johnstown became famous overnight. The meteorite itself is a rare type, an igneous cement-looking rock which has fooled seekers for years.

Jack Murphy, an expert on meteorites who retired a few years ago after 35 years at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, told the story of the meteorite Tuesday night. He also told several people who brought pieces of what they hoped were the meteorite they did not have a part of the celebrity rock.

One who did, however, told her meteorite story.

Sandy Wiest Lebsack showed her piece, nicknamed “Chip,” to the group and told how her grandfather, Peter Wiest, kept it for years and passed it to her. That has been the only local documented fragment in this area of the 28 confirmed pieces recovered, said Murphy. The largest piece was sold after its fall to the Denver museum and then to the American Museum in New York, where it is still. But now McNally's gift to the museum can be added to the list of documented fragments and a piece of local history has again come home.

Murphy had a gift for the museum too. He presented a copy of the front page of the Denver Post in July 1924 with the picture of a little girl and recovered pieces of the Johnstown meteorite. That little girl, “little Miss Beth Bailey,” as the article states, is Murphy’s mother. Her father worked at the museum, and she was there when the specimens were brought out to show the press. Therefore, she was added to the photo with the space rocks; rocks her son has spent years researching.

The piece of the meteorite and the front-page picture will be added to the display at the museum telling about Johnstown’s visitor from space.

Editor’s note: According to a story published about a year ago in The Johnstown Breeze, it was reported a 29th piece of the Johnstown Meteorite had been found by a Johnstown resident. After the story was published, the sample was examined by Murphy, who has said he does not believe it is a piece of the meteorite.

"Several of the streaks are triggered by impact craters

"Other interesting observations include triggering of
slope streaks by an impact crater, blast from an impact
explosion, or boulders rolling or bouncing downslope,
and formation of long linear ridges within the streak
that are parallel to its margins."

Jumping Asteroids
Jet Propulsion Laboratory
August 18, 2009

How our solar system was formed has fascinated scientists and laymen
alike for -- well, for a really, really long time. New research may have
answered a piece to the puzzle - how big were the first planetesimals?

For those of you scoring at home," planetesimals" were the first solid
objects in our newly minted solar system (also known as the
protoplanetary disk). They began life as small grains of dust orbiting
an infant sun. These grains would bump into each other, clump together
and gradually form larger grains of dust, which eventually became small
space rocks.

Now the theory goes that some of these small rock-sized planetesimals
aspired for greater things, and continued to gradually grow in size to
become asteroids, and that a few of those continued to grow beyond the
asteroid stage and become planets.

The problem with this tidy little theory is that when the burgeoning
space rocks grew to about one meter (3.3 feet) in size, orbital
mechanics tells us the gas comingling with them in the protoplanetary
disk should have acted like a brake, slowing their velocity appreciably.
Their orbital speed having been cut, these filing cabinet-sized space
rocks would have spiraled into the sun. Essentially, the gas would have
acted as a celestial "mini-vacuum." The problem is, there are asteroids
up there in space. Honest, ask any astronomer. So what happened?

Evidence is now mounting that these small space rocks quickly "jumped"
(or grew) in size from below one meter to multi-kilometer in size.
Planetesimals that big were big enough to plow through the drag created
by the gas in the protoplanetary disk without having their orbits
appreciably altered. Hence they did not spiral into the sun.

What data point to a jump in asteroid sizes? Simply, the asteroids
available for viewing in the night's sky. Telescopic surveys indicate
there is currently a plethora of asteroids less than one kilometer (.62
mile) wide but those over one kilometer drop considerably in number. The
authors used computer simulations in an attempt to mimic the impacts and
coagulation processes that took place over the millions of years between
when the asteroids formed and now. The only way they could arrive at the
current asteroid size distribution was to begin these simulations with
planetesimals that quickly morphed into asteroids hundreds of kilometers
in size. Once their growth spurt was over, these massive celestial
bodies began an epoch-sized game of demolition derby as they orbited the
sun. Over the eons, and with each extraterrestrial pileup, came fewer
and fewer large asteroids - a fragmentation process that continues to
this day. Despite the modest sizes of asteroids today, the paper's
authors conclude that asteroids must have been born big.

The paper, "Asteroids Were Born Big" is available now online from the
ScienceDirect website and will be available in a future edition of the
journal Icarus.
