This is only 15 miles from my home - I'll be outside with my hard-hat and bucket - sweet.

Now that is an interseting thing.

If its true, it can only be a meteorite.

i say aliens are pulling a joke on us.


how can it be a meteorite, we all know what happens to meteors and stuff. now...if it doesn't completely incinirate before it touches the ground, and when it touches down it....has a glorious way of touching down.

A meteorite would be blackened from all the burning in the atmosphere. This is something someone threw out of a plane just to see what would happen

i highly doubt, it but could it be that the way the chemical combined with the oxygen in the atmosphere gave it a gold looking coat? You know like lets say we give the chemical the name Xy
Xy+O2-->XyO2  (O2 is oxygen)
or the series of chemicals gave it a compound and it just happened like that?

I really doubt thats how it worked though, something to play around with though

A russian rocket plummeted through the atmosphere the other day, I wonder if that has anything to do with it? Im leaning toward a meteorite.

I saw a local report that verified it was a meteorite that had mostly burnt off during entry, obvious fairly large since only the core survived and it hadn't suffered extreme burning - what remained was NOT identified in the news story though, but they said it WAS amazing heavy and dense for its size. A college lab currently holds it for further testing, but it WILL be returned to the peoples who's home it crashed through.

Those peoples financial worries are over. Casinos pay money for the image of the Virgin Mary on a piece of Toast. Thats gunna be worth at least a million.

If it was me, id be in that lab making sure they didnt knock any off.

That kinda makes it even more interesting.

BTW a vouple of months ago an Air New Zealand A/C felw through a fiels of buring russin space junk, close enough to hear the sonic booms as it all fell to earth.

The Russians said " We miscalculated the re entry" Lifes cheap to those russinas!
