Email from Bill Butler NE Alabama...
I am a fifty eight year old man who lives on Keel Mountain (Jackson County)
in Northeast Alabama. Sometime around 8:30 last night I took my dog out for
her nightly walk and in the east northeast horizon I saw a large extremely
bright light that had a rather short very bright tail. As soon as I saw it
and because of its size and brightness I thought it was either a meteorite
or large space junk. Bill Butler

E-mail From Rosie M.-Swansboro, NC...I was sitting on the dock facing ESE (Cassiopeia behind me) at about 9:30 Friday night and saw the biggest, brightest meteor I've ever seen (and I see a lot of them out here in this low light pollution, coastal area). It arced across the sky from right to left over 100 degrees of my field of vision, for about 8 seconds, with a clear, rounded orange leading edge and long white smoke trail. I could see the complete round shape on the back edge, visible even through the tail. I've never seen anything like it! Spectacular!  
thank you Rosie! Otis Redding would be proud :-)

E-mail From Sue F. in South Carolina...Last evening my friend and I were travelling home from the beach. We were traveling on I26 from Columbia, heading toward Greenville. We both were so delighted that we were seeing a shooting star. However, it did not fizzle-out like usual. The fireball did not seem to diminish in size and did not fizzle. It appeared to fall to the earth. We lost sight of it behind the trees. We wondered if it was actually a plane, but did not see any sign of an explosion on impact.   thanks sue!

Jon M. In Polson, MT Writes...I was indoors with the TV on, and still saw the meteor. I wish it wasn't cloudy, but it went in and out of view 4or 5 times. It was awesome. Incredible fragmentation, large pieces that had there own trains. It was a glowing train with parts breaking off. There were some clouds so my line of sight was a little broken up  thanks Jon!

Chicxulub KT Crater To Be Drilled For Science...

 
 A plan to study the Chicxulub crater by boring 1.5km into the sea bed is among the highlights of ocean drilling projects proposed for the next decade.
Chicxulub, in Mexico, was carved out by the asteroid strike that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) also plans expeditions to study earthquakes and ancient climate, and says the need is greater than ever.
Another long-term aim is to penetrate the Earth's mantle for the first time....MORE...
