Huge flaming object falls to Earth in north Queensland, Townsville residents say

Residents from across central and northern Queensland have reported seeing a huge flaming object fall from the sky and hit the ground "like a bomb".

They say what appeared to be a massive ball with a blue and orange tail hit the ground in the suburb of Kelso in Townsville around 6:30pm (AEST) yesterday.

Resident Kim Vega was sitting in her backyard at Kelso when she saw the moment of impact.

"It was like an explosion but without a sound," she said.

"You've just seen it was like an atomic bomb effect when it would have hit the ground and all the trees and the skies lit up."

2. Sources say it left a huge flaming hole full of ash

Geologists call this phenomenon - a huge flaming ash hole- a Limbaugh effect

5. I was going to post this earlier this morning but I didn't have an American Democratic

news outlet to source. Thanks for posting it. I'm wondering if it might be part of the comet linear debri field that's supposed to hit on the 25th of may.

Interesting.

11. The Thing itself lay almost entirely buried in sand,...

...amidst the scattered splinters of a fir tree it had shivered to fragments in its descent. The uncovered part had the appearance of a huge cylinder, caked over and its outline softened by a thick scaly dun-coloured incrustation. It had a diameter of about thirty yards. He approached the mass, surprised at the size and more so at the shape, since most meteorites are rounded more or less completely. It was, however, still so hot from its flight through the air as to forbid his near approach. A stirring noise within its cylinder he ascribed to the unequal cooling of its surface; for at that time it had not occurred to him that it might be hollow.

12. Here's another one

Loud boom over Virginia yesterday confirmed by NASA as caused by meteorite
People describe the incident as a large boom that shook the foundations of their homes. NASA says a meteorite about the size of a softball entered the atmosphere over West Virginia before landing in Tennessee. No injuries or damage have been reported.
