So it just happened again?

30 posts in this topic

Well its 2:08 am and i just awoke. As i went to sleep early the night before. So i was just Hanging out of my window and i was looking at the nice calm night sky. But this time i saw 8 or 9 asteroids enter and burn up. Big enough to illuminate the sky for 1.5 seconds each, and one after another. In the same spot. I just sat and started thinking wow thats beautiful.

I seem to be having some extreme luck as of late accidentally looking in the direction of these things. As far as im aware we are not in any kind of shower are we? I just started to notice with my own eyes what i think is an uptick. I aint seen many of these in my entire life. maybe 100 or so as i do look at the sky a lot. But in the last week alone i have spotted maybe 35 of those.

guess i just wanted to share.

Wow!  That is interesting...and what a lovely gift from the Universe! :)

By any chance are you trying to decide whether something is "right"?  Just curious.

Wow awesome. Keep us updated as usual. If there is any way you can "roll cam" when you thing you may see something it would be totally rad. I am sure many people would love to watch such as what you describe. Thanks for the site!

It's funny how that happens.  The Universe typically has to knock me upside the head.  Anyway, glad you got your answer!

Most likely this is what is going on Shep..

Around the world, observers are reporting bright fireballs in the midnight sky. The source of the display is Comet Encke, parent of the annual Taurid meteor shower.

<snip>

Earth runs unto the debris zone of Comet Encke every year around this time. Usually, the encounter produces a minor meteor shower, but 2015 is different. "This is higher than usual activity," says meteor expert Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario. "The Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) is seeing stronger Taurid activity than any of the last few years. Our Southern Ontario Meteor Network cameras caught 54 Taurid fireballs from Oct 31 - Nov 4 alone, compared to 22, 18, and 32 Taurids for the entire month of November in 2014, 2013 and 2012 respectively."

These extra fireballs are coming from a "swarm" of gravelly meteoroids that weaves in and out of Comet Encke's dusty debris zone. In some years, Earth hits the swarm; in other years it misses. 2015 appears to be a hit.
