Fireball Crosses the Mexican Night Sky

A fireball was spotted in the night sky above north-eastern Mexico on Tuesday, as Hurricane Delta made landfall in the Yucatán Peninsula and several minor earthquakes struck the country.

The fireball was most visible above the states of Nuevo León, Coahuila and Tamaulipas, which border the U.S., around 10:14 p.m. local time, according to the Global Atmospheric Monitoring Agency—part of Mexico's Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research.

Some amazed eyewitnesses—as well as some security cameras, webcams and doorbell camss—managed to capture footage of the fireball as it blazed through the atmosphere.

Cameras in Monterrey—the state capital of Nuevo León—captured images of the fireball briefly illuminating the night sky above the city.

Local reports suggest that the meteorite fell near Ciudad Victoria, the capital of the state of Tamaulipas. Mexican news outlet Milenio reported that the meteorite set fire to bushes in the area where it fell, with local firefighter teams responding to the incident.

Re: Fireball Crosses the Mexican Night Sky

That would be nuts if that shit landed in your back yard. Hopefully in the back yard and not the house.

I've heard that sometimes those meteors can be worth alot of money.

I wonder if they know these are coming and approximately where they will land several hours or even days in advance.

The fireballs or “shooting stars” are called meteors. When a meteoroid survives a trip through the atmosphere and hits the ground, it's called a meteorite.

Re: Fireball Crosses the Mexican Night Sky

If you see a meteorite coming down, get a compass and note the location as best you can. Whether a meteorite, or pieces of space junk coming down, they ARE worth a LOT of money. There is a guy here in Tucson who hunts meteorites for a living. If the guy with the gloves has actual meteorite pieces, he's looking at a brand new car.

Maybe even a house. Depending on several factors, meteorite can be worth its weight in gold. And even in some cases many times more than its weight in gold. Like 1000 dollars a gram. If you had just 1 pound of such rock, that's nearly a half million dollars.

Personally, I would be hoping for a half-melted piece of spacecraft. or maybe the semi-melted 35 mm camera that one of our astronauts lost in orbit. Anything with a serial number on it would be extra cool. The rocks are valuable, but I'd rather have some space junk.

I'm sure some space junk would be extremely valuable too.
