THANKS FOR ROCKIN' THE FOX!
If you miss an event of course like The Fox on Facebook and live it vicariously and share with all your friends too.
Now let's ROCK!
This is the Great Daylight Fireball, this little guy is only about 10 feet in diameter. It's earth grazing meteoroid that passed within 35 miles of our planet on August 10,1972. Check out how it's going through the clouds in this film. It entered earth's atmosphere in daylight over Utah and passed northward leaving over Alberta Canada. As we talked about in an earlier post we have a much larger one (150 feet across) coming Friday afternoon just over 17,000 miles up which puts it right between our highest flying satellites and the earth. NASA says it's no big deal we have one slide by us every 40 years or so just like the one in the film 41 years ago. If You want to know what else NASA says about it look up the previous post it has a link about Friday's rock.
