A month ago, has attracted great interest in our country over the saw, causing daytime meteor brightness. The direction of this phenomenon based on reports from hangrobbanásról and even then, it became clear that the land may be worth meteoritokat in Slovakia, near Kosice somewhere should be sought.
Timar Gabor, ELTE Department of Geophysics and Space sciences leader of the [origo] has been on 3 March, said Slovak and Hungarian seismology (earthquakes detector) station data, and the Seismological Institute, the Institute for Policy briefs Sunday evening in a fireball of a piece of land you get.
The accounts of subjectivity, and a few direct observations, however, because at first sight appeared to be very difficult to determine the exact location. What we set out to find, and we have heard many conflicting accounts. The home produced and released two direct-seen shots (and Telkiből Örkényből), however, the staff of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and Pavel Jiri Borovička Spurný could be distinguished from a 3x6-km area near Kosice, where leérhettek remaining debris after the explosion.

'Golden Orbit' Unlikely as Full Moon Madness Hits Gnomes in
Tokyo- MARCH 26, 2010
As CERN makes final checks before the firing of the duel beams to achieve the hoped for Big O approaches on the Full Moon of March 30, 2010, madness has already struck amongst many of the Gnomes in Luzern, Switzerland according to YouTube postings in 2009 FEB.
This has led to speculation that the Strong Interaction may not be succeed and the O from the Mini Big Bang may not be reached leaving only a golden shower, or a best, another white unicorn released.
Bad outcomes might be the recurrence of the massive GAS loss, the MESS on Isle THREE or another soft QUARK, Gluons with the UP, DOWN and Electon or THE STRANGE, CHARM, BEAUTY.
Across the Atlantic, the Gnomes in South Park, Colorado in the US also seem reluctant to let go of any gold for even a shower according to their reluctant spokesman.

Meteoritkráterre appeared in the Hungarian research
Hungarian Nation - 21 时间 前
"After a long course of research has been credibly demonstrate that the central part of Japan's research group for many years studied the geological formation of meteoritbecsapódás was actually a remnant crater" - said the Mta.hu's Gucsik Arnold, Veszprém Academic Committee of the MTA (VEAB) and planetológiai Working space sciences, President of Savaria University Center Associate Professor in the Department of the geographical context, that the Japanese mountain Oikeyama research results in the prestigious journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, said the February issue.
"This is an extremely rare and important discovery because of a geologically active area, such as Japan, have never been shown meteoriteredetű crater" - stressed the importance of research. Experts are currently 176 meteoritkrátert be recorded, but the vast majority of these areas, which are extremely stable for geologic time scale. "In Japan, the heavy rains of 4 mm per year die from the ground, the result of earthquakes and meters may vary from one face of the earth during the year" - Gucsik Arnold explained, adding: Japan, the erosion effects of a possible crater becsapódásos relatively quickly, to transform a few hundred thousand years or even completely disappears. The 200-250 km north-west of Tokyo, Nagano Prefecture in the geological sense, a very young crater counts keletkezhetett during the Ice Age. The southern Japanese Alps, the mountain 2000 meters high Oikeyama lying krátermaradvány dimensions similar to a famous Arizona Barringer meteoritkráterhez: after the formation of 1 km in diameter and 300 m deep have been - the researchers said, noting that today is no longer recognizable in the primary kráterjellegek the the original crater is only 5 percent of the material remained in the area of grace based on the mid-1970s attracted the attention of geologists, when Professor Masao Sakamoto samples collected from the southern Japanese Alps foothills ásványaiból. The rocks are very sharp, running parallel black lines were seen, which surprised the researchers, because this type of minerals have been found so far only meteoritkráterekben.
"When a meteorite slam into the ground, the rocks in a short period of time enormous pressure of thousands of degrees temperature and high-intensity shock waves are exposed to" - explains the researcher from the science deformed by planar sheets, called the origin of the typical petrographic patterns. "When the post-doctoral fellow in Okayama University, Japan arrived and saw the mountain Oikeyama samples collected immediately noticed an astonishingly similar to the Barringer Crater in Arizona kőzetmintázataihoz" - recalled Gucsik Arnold, who is the university's own research group set up within the crater, apparently to investigate further the origin becsapódásos . "Our research has become a real national cause in Japan, triggered a huge interest not only in professional circles, but the public and attracted the attention of the media" - he added, Savaria University Center docense.A work of the group, however, soon encountered obstacles. The profession is not only accepted evidence planar, deformed plates based on test results. Less frequently, but such kőzetdeformációk develop during volcanic activity - the researchers said, then added a personal tragedy shook group, when one of the Japanese counterparts, a senior professor died in a terepbejárás the occasion of the earthquake. Then for years there has been no progress in the research. But suddenly one day it occurred to me that the doctoral studies used during the petrographic petrographic microscopy and spectroscopy method combined with a new meglévőeknél more specific procedures may be applied kőzetvizsgálati - Gucsik Arnold recalled. The idea has inspired researchers in Japan found kőzetmintákat the new method were compared with other meteoritkráterekből from kőzetekkel. Módszerünkkel individual has been identified a hitherto unknown microstructures, which can only meteoriteredetű rocks of the crater - the geochemical expert said, adding that the test results are collected from the scientific community is convinced of the geological formation Oikeyama Hill becsapódásos origin. The first evidence of meteoritbecsapódás crater caused by the Japanese in this research is not closed off. The next step, geologists want to define more precisely the age of the crater. It is likely that during the Ice Age, about 250-500 thousand years ago has evolved, but you want to specify the age and the impact we want to clarify the exact circumstances - VEAB stressed the importance of the researcher and then added a goal to Japan in the crater felkerüljön meteoriteredetű officially registered in the list of craters. To do this, a series of very strict criteria of proof would be described by the researchers to végigvinniük which Hungarian experts shall be involved, since the detection of high-pressure ásványfázisok MTA KFKI staff will be using.

Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas Fireball 16MAR2010

There was a bright, explosive fireball right around the border of Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas on Tuesday morning (5:25 MDT) March 16. It was probably a little too fast and steep for a meteorite producer, but that remains a possibility.

Good video data allowed for an accurate path to be determined. The moderate
speed and high altitude of the terminal explosion makes me think everything
burned up, but meteorite production isn't out of the question.

I've posted a report at
which includes video
from two cameras.

Mississippi Fireball 14MAR2010

Fireball streaking across sky in MS

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) A bizarre daytime occurrence had the phones ringing in WLBT's newsroom Sunday.
Viewers calling with wide spread reports of mysterious fireballs in the sky and loud booms baffled state agencies and eye witnesses alike.
"It didn't last but maybe three or four seconds, and it was gone," said Phoronia Coring.
She was driving north from Tylertown Sunday afternoon when something strange in the sky caught her eye.
"I looked sort of to the east of 55 and it was just this fire ball that was falling out of the sky and it made you think of a falling star expect during the day, and it was just bright red," said Coring.
The Madison resident said it was around 1:45 p.m. while in traffic on I-55 in Brookhaven when she saw it.
Then she said a smoke trail lingered in the sky for about 15 minutes.
"As soon as it disappeared I called my husband. I said 'Stanley you won't believe what I just saw'," said the shocked motorist.
And Coring was not alone.
WLBT received numerous calls of the sighting.
