Pin!!! The Meteors Seen All Around The World (21st Sep) Was ONE Meteor & Grazed In & Out Of Earths Atmosphere - 1st Time EVER
Dynamicists believe a large meteoroid broke apart as it passed over Ireland on the night of September 21, 2012. Slowed by its atmospheric passage, the object entered a temporary orbit around Earth and returned to the sky over eastern North America 155 minutes later.




Amazing Meteor Boomerangs Around Earth

For the first time ever, a meteor has grazed in and out of Earth's atmosphere, slowing enough to become a temporary satellite that lasted a full orbit.

Friday-night crowds were out and about when the bolide appeared, delighting and amazing untold thousands as it broke into dozens of pieces as it glided east to east across the sky. Dirk Ross, who tracks bright meteors and meteorite finds worldwide, logged 564 eyewitness reports from England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Norway.

A few hours later, Ross received another burst of 126 sightings. But these weren't from Europe — instead, a fireball had appeared over southeastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast. What at first seemed the unlikely arrival of two dramatic bolides in a single night is now known to be something much more historic and scientifically profound.

Mathematician Esko Lyytinen, a member of the Finnish Fireball Working Group of the Ursa Astronomical Association, has analyzed both sets of sightings and concludes that the two events resulted from a single object encountering Earth that night. He believes a large body grazed the upper atmosphere, dipping to an altitude of 33 miles (53 km) over Ireland before escaping back to space. Because it arrived moving at only about 8 miles (13 km) per second, barely above Earth's escape velocity, it lingered for more than a minute as it crossed the sky. (This explains why some witnesses mistook it for reentering spacecraft debris.)

Too fucking right....

This was a Historical Event...

HOLY SHIT...

This Meteor Came From The EAST and this was an historical event....Hmmmmm

Nostradamus said something about a ball of flames or something coming from the EAST, a threat from the EAST..

Also, fire that will fall from the sky...

IT WAS A BLOODY SIGN..

I saw it in the pacific northwest

must have been incoming as it didn't break up here

the next day I read all the reports of those on the other side of the world seeing it, and watching it break up

it was something special, no question

I'd say to expect more of these. Too many near misses. We've just been lucky so far. The Earth is merely a bullseye target in a shooting range.

Just a matter of time before the bullseye gets hit!

Vedic astrology considers meteors or comets as an extremely inauspicious thing. You can almost be sure that some major disaster will happen when you see one. And has this ever even happened before, a fucking meteor was so close to earth that it actually partially entered the atmosphere? It is really insane when you think about it.

It was seen mostly in Europe and North America. That means that those two countries or areas will be destroyed completely.

Nice! Never heard about this prior. Thanks for posting!

Found a link to some different video clips:
[link to lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp]

My question is, don't they usually break up within a relatively short timeframe upon entering the atmosphere - in any aspect? How big was this exactly, that it survives the break-up shown in some of the videos, flew all the way back around, and re-entered the atmosphere? In some of the images it looks like it completely disintegrated. I understand the concept and the explanation....just a little concerned that we've been getting so many flybys recently. hf

But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice.

Actually, hitting our atmosphere at just the right speed and angle to perform an aerobraking maneuver to land in the NE USA is a pretty good bullseye, if you ask me!

In this last video, when it 'breaks up', you can imagine that it is possible that could have been the 'object' shedding some sort of heat shield after initial deceleration...
