SIERRA FIREBALL DECODED: On Sunday morning, April 22nd, just as the Lyrid meteor shower was dying down, a spectacular fireball exploded over California's Sierra Nevada mountain range. The loud explosion rattled homes from central California to Reno, Nevada, and beyond. According to Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Envronment Office, the source of the blast was a meteoroid about the size of a minivan.

"Elizabeth Silber at Western University has searched for infrasound signals from the explosion," says Cooke. "Infrasound is very low frequency sound which can travel great distances. There were strong signals at 2 stations, enabling a triangulation of the energy source at 37.6N, 120.5W. This is marked by a yellow flag in the map below."



"The energy is estimated at a whopping 3.8 kilotons of TNT, so this was a big event," he continues. "I am not saying there was a 3.8 kiloton explosion on the ground in California. I am saying that the meteor possessed this amount of energy before it broke apart in the atmosphere. [The map] shows the location of the atmospheric breakup, not impact with the ground."

"The fact that sonic booms were heard indicates that this meteor penetrated very low in atmosphere, which implies a speed less than 15 km/s (33,500 mph). Assuming this value for the speed, I get a mass for the meteor of around 70 metric tons. Hazarding a further guess at the density of 3 grams per cubic centimeter (solid rock), I calculate a size of about 3-4 meters, or about the size of a minivan."

"This meteor was probably not a Lyrid; without a trajectory, I cannot rule out a Lyrid origin, but I think it likely that it was a background or sporadic meteor."

Re: earthquake or giant sonic boom just now in Orange County, CA
I'm about 5 miles away from the epicenter.

It was a nice little shake. The dog had been acting funny all morning. He's 100 lbs. He crawled in a chair with me and wanted to be held about a half hour before it hit.

Having grown up in So Cal, the whole thing is, when a quake starts you don't know how big it's going to be.

You wait about 15 seconds, if it continues to build and get worse after that, you know it's a biggie.

What most people don't talk about is the sound. A big quake is loud. It's a LOUD low rumble.

This one was big enough to get your attention. The ground moved and house shook. But it was just a drive-by. It lasted about 10 sec and that was it.

Thank you, AC, for your clear and articulate description.

/tomato plants out or in? Inquiring minds want to know!
 Quoting: Jefiner


Remember huge electron release on thrust quakes usually make a rumble popping sound. 3.9 releases decent pressure, especially on a thrust movement, just hope it is a release and not a building motion, keep your eyes open Cali. LOVE TO ALL!

...



I will check. I just know i was watching HLN and that news story came on. So i then googled it...then checked.here to see if anyone was posting about it and found this thread and was surprised no one else saw the story i saw
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14921077

The article was from today. Just double checked
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14921077


You are referencing an article from the "Hindustan Times" from India. Of course it says it's "today". They are a many hours ahead of any time zone in North America.

These were two separate events in different areas of the state over 24 hours apart.

The article you checked is regarding the meteor event that happened yesterday morning (4/22) Pacific Daylight Time. The earthquake this morning was 4/23 @10:37 Pacific Daylight Time (17:37:02 UTC).

 Quoting: ntlatp


bolded for emphasis because people seem to be confused.

The "meteor" event was Sunday 4/22 in the north-central part of California, reportedly felt from west of Sacramento to the Lake Tahoe/Reno, Nevada area.

The 3.9 earthquake mentioned by OP was today, Monday 4/23, in Southern California (centered near Laguna Niguel in Orange County).

Thanks AC 430...

I do think people are getting these two events mixed up. I'm glad someone understands. Thanks for the emphasis.

Re: earthquake or giant sonic boom just now in Orange County, CA
this was not just a quake, although very close in time
about 2 min)this double boom sound explosion that happened 10:49 today came from on top of the house and had a very strong air shock wave with it. quakes don't have and don't create air shock waves. this is similar to what happened yesterday in Nevada at 08:00 but we could not see anything because of the clouds. may b a meteorite or a man made something.lets see what happens the next few days...

I think it is the earth's atmosphere interacting with the fluff/energy ribbon.
I don't think it's earthquake related.

right well.. i live walking distance to the epicenter.. and I'm telling you.. i first heard a BOOM.. then felt the quick 2-3 second jolt.

at first i thought it was a bombing practice at nearby Pendleton.. as they have been bombing quite frequently over the last year.

I've experienced tons of eqs and this was "different"

My hubby was in the area during the earthquake and has lived in CA for over 50 years and experienced tons of earthquakes - this one freaked him out..... Because of the nature of the earthquake - it was different than any he had experienced before.
