Americans in New York, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania reported seeing a fiery, 500-pound meteor soar through the sky this week before the space rock apparently broke up somewhere over the Keystone State, according to scientists.
NASA said on Tuesday this week that the meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere in the sky above western Pennsylvania earlier that morning and was reportedly witnessed by spectators stretching for hundreds of miles across the United States from the Mid-Atlantic to the Midwest.
Three cameras maintained by the American space agency captured the meteor making its way over the US, including one at the Allegheny Observatory near Pittsburgh, PA that NASA says shows the space rock traveling roughly 60 miles above the Earth at a speed of 45,000 miles per hour.
“It flared brighter than the full moon before the cameras lost track of it at an altitude of 13 miles above the town of Kittanning” near Pittsburgh, NASA said in a statement on Tuesday.
The fiery trail was visible all the way on Earth because, according to non-profit scientific organization, American Meteorological Society, air molecules excite a column of atmospheric atoms along the rock’s path as it enters the atmosphere.
According to NASA, fragments of the burnt out meteor (known as “meteorites”) likely ended up on the Pennsylvania ground miles below the rock’s pathway.
“This celestial visitor had an orbit that took it out to the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter - it came a mightly [sic] long way to a fiery end in the predawn Pennsylvania sky,” NASA said on the aerospace group’s official Facebook page.
In all, the AMS received nearly 100 reports from eyewitnesses who said they saw a fireball in the vicinity of southwestern Pennsylvania earlier Tuesday.
I don't know about you, but I'm tired of the bullshit. I'm tired of men and women prohibited by our original Constitution from holding public office being paid by criminal, international bankers to hijack our Republic, turning it into a for-profit, privately owned Corporation that has become the scourge of the earth. I'm tired of the brainwashing and mind control, tired of the poisoning of our air, water, land and even our bodies and minds. I'm fed up with the passivity of the population lulled to sleep by false spirituality that has not allowed appropriate human emotion to be expressed in a healthy way. It's time to take out the parasites and psychopathic leaches that run our institutions, extorting resources and enslaving humanity. To you sick, greedy bastards I say, "Either repent and mean it, or know that we warriors are coming after you with a vengeance. Your gig is up!"
I've been pondering a lot again this morning, especially in light of the events of the previous day. I want to share some of what I see and feel about our struggle to overcome the tyranny of the beast. Can 555 win?
