Aug 13 - Loud BOOM in Utah Was A Meteor Strike
 

 

SALT LAKE CITY — Residents across northern Utah reported hearing a loud boom early Saturday morning.

The sound was heard and felt just before 8:30 a.m., with reports coming in from people who say their homes shook following the boom.

People reported hearing the noise from areas from Roy to Bluffdale and everywhere in between.

Seismologists confirmed that the event was not an earthquake.

“I have experienced many earthquakes," said Luz Hernandez, who lived in Puerto Rico for years. "So because everything shakes, in the house, the walls, definitely it was not that case here — just a big sound."

Many also theorized that the noise was a sonic boom produced from aircraft nearby, possibly from Hill Air Force Base. However, in a tweet sent later Saturday, Gov. Spencer Cox said the noise was not from military aircraft.

The sound was actually caused by a meteor.

Robert Lunsford with the American Meteor Society said it’s rare to hear the sound created by a meteor.

“Your normal meteor is only the size of a pea or a small pebble. This particular object was probably the size of a beachball,” Lunsford said.

“You’ve got a big chunk of rock flying through space, and sometimes they even break up," added Duke Johnson with the Clark Planetarium. "And then you can get multiple booms, and I saw that the Weather Service did have two different blimps on the radar from this thing so it appears that it may have broken up.

That’s why when the meteor came through the earth’s atmosphere, it pushed on the sound waves, resulting in the boom.

“Anything that surpasses the speed of sound, where the air is thick enough to carry sound waves, can create a sonic boom," Lunsford said. "And the only thing that really does that is lightning, a supersonic jet, and meteors."

Mandi Arrington who lives in West Jordan got her trees trimmed on Friday and thought a branch fell.

“I actually thought part of my tree had broken off and hit my house, so that’s why I went out and I started looking around and I was completely confused,” she said. “It was a relief to find out that it was something else.”

It's really amazing that nothing bigger has hit Earth since the 1903 Tunguska event that leveled over almost 850 square miles.

Either this planet has been really fu*king lucky in the last billion years or there is some higher power.

Just saying, because we should have been due one by now don't you think?

And I'm agnostic by way, so don't come at me crazy i'm just throwing sh*t out there.

I think it’s more like things have just calmed down, like yeah there’s still sh*t out there but I think the worst of it probability-wise happened early on…. Plus Jupiter keeps a lot of stuff away from us and like someone else says small stuff burns up in the atmosphere. But even knowing that I agree it just feels like something should happen again, not while I’m around I hope lol

I’m not an expert or anything, just my thoughts but I always liked space/universe stuff

Never count out the Yellowstone supervolcano.






My other doomsday favorites are gamma-ray bursts and CERN either creating a black hole or creating a trans-dimensional window like in Project Arrowhead.

The solar system isn't as active as it once was. Many of those extremely large asteroids have either already hit sh*t or have been swallowed up by the various orbits in our system. Another thing is that space is massive. Like, unfathomably massive. If the solar system was the size of the continental US then Earth would probably be a small suburban city. The (big) asteroid that you are proposing would most like be the size of a small building being thrown at the city. Imagine the chances. Taking a small building and randomly dropping it somewhere on the continental US and it happens to land on your small city

This is about the best we get



It's not just earth though, other planets take strikes all the time ie Jupiter.

It’s a certain group of people that don’t think space exist or we live inside a “dome” and will argue with you, calling you “programmed” or “indoctrinated”

And yet we have all these videos like this

It's by design. Our atmosphere/stratosphere/mesophere/all them fu*kin spheres have evolved over time to protect the earth against space debris like that. Most of it burns up before we even see it
The atmosphere/ stratosphere/ mesophere is not a thinking entity that makes a conscious decision to “evolve” to protect the earth.

The earth doesn’t even need protection from the small a*s sh*t that burns in the atmosphere. It’s the big sh*t that levels cities that needs to be kept out and “all the spheres” don’t do sh*t to protect from that.

One of the things that helped give me a perspective on how big space is, was the asteroid belt and always wondering how do you navigate it b/c of the movies and tv shows showing someone dodging all these large rocks. Even the pictures would have you to believe that it looks like this…







But after researching, it is estimated that the asteroids are pretty far apart.

”Astronomers estimate that the average distance between two asteroids in the asteroid belt is about 600,000 miles (966,000 km). This is about 2.5 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon. That is a lot of space between two neighboring asteroids!”

A mountain? We probably wouldn't be here typing with one another.

I’ve had the same thoughts many times myself

It’s easy to forget as humans that’s we’re living in a spinning rock, flying through space.

Astronomers are actually not that good at seeing sh*t that are near the earth and usually don't detect them until it's too late. Even the ones that could do real damage sometimes pass by us and they don't notice it until it's already no longer a threat. Just goes to show when the big one does come there's no telling if we'll know or get decimated with no warning.
