Ran across the following today:
In the article, there is this comment:
Mike Maberry, assistant director of the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, said he was not aware of any reports of an object in the sky. But he said its description sounded like a meteor.
"Whoever got to see that was very lucky," he said, adding that chances are "very slim" of a meteor landing in the vicinity of Maui in the middle of the Pacific.
I don't know... I have really mixed emotions when reading this. If Mr Maberry really had a clue what was in store for us in the near future with fireballs and meteorites, he might be less inclined to make such a statement. For some idea on the reasons, check out our Fireballs and Meteorites blog.
The short answer is that we're going to be seeing more and more of these things. More than you would ever want.... They might well be the last thing we see...
