6/16/2004: Meteorite hits home



Brenda Archer holds a meteorite that crashed through the roof of her Auckland, New Zealand, home, hit a couch and rolled under a computer. It wasn't clear whether her homeowner's policy includes meteor showers.

How do we know its not really a martian egg? Especially the way it curled up under the computer table. No way I'd sleep with that "thing" in the house

What's with the funny camera angle? Does New Zealand have a 9 foot photographer on the beat?



jaguar  Wednesday Jun 16 05:07 PM

he's standing on a sheep, they're everywhere.



lumberjim  Wednesday Jun 16 05:11 PM

looks like a giant charcoal briquette. wonder if it's match light?



Guess  Wednesday Jun 16 07:43 PM

i would think a meteorite of that size would make a crater or more destruction,
but seeing as i'm not very learned in the meteorite world, what would i know



Slartibartfast  Wednesday Jun 16 08:40 PM

I've read that most meteorites that come down like that are warm to the touch, not hot. You can walk right over and pick it up as soon as it hits the ground. Imagine that, from way out in space to in your hands in a matter of a minute or so.

But beware the ones that glow or ooze green goo, don't touch those.

The cameraman isn't tall...she's just really short. The couch and table are actually on the floor. They have no legs. And aren't her hands alittle out of proportion? They're HUGE...and who told her that color lipstick was good for meteorite showings? Ok, I'm crabby...goin to bed now.

it's a fish-eye lens attached to the SLR. that's all



lumberjim  Thursday Jun 17 10:11 AM

concealed nanny-cam screen capture?



blase  Thursday Jun 17 08:14 PM

It's really just a waste dump from a 747

To allow a single shot to show the point of entry, where it landed, the resident and the object all in one shot?

Apparently, this little booger was only the opening act.

House-sized meteor hits Australia

Hopefully, that concludes the show.



Elspode  Saturday Jun 19 08:08 PM

A house-sized meteor falling *anywhere* on the Earth would be pretty hard to overlook. It it made it to the ground, you'd just have to look for the mile-wide, smoldering crater. If it exploded in the air, there would be significant chunks scattered around, and the explosion would have been enormous.

A house-sized meteor would be the biggest thing to fall on the Earth in modern history.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jun 19 09:11 PM

Wouldn't you have to know how far away it was to estimate its size?



russotto  Monday Jun 21 10:21 AM

It was one of those houses from "Monopoly"



OnyxCougar  Tuesday Jun 22 06:49 PM

Is that a 750 sqft house or 3400 sqft house with a casita and 3 car garage?
