Hole punch cloud occurs twice in two days over B.C.
February 25, 2015  
Cloud phenomenon stirs quite an online reaction.
A rare cloud phenomenon called a hole punch cloud or a fallstreak hole occurred twice in two days over the southern region of British Columbia, Canada, earlier this week, stirring quite a reaction on Global BC’s Facebook page—everything from “kinda creepy but beautiful” to “aliens for sure.”

The first hole punch cloud was seen Sunday morning over the Lower Mainland, the second on Monday morning over Vernon.
So what is a hole punch cloud? Global meteorologist Kristi Gordon explained:
Another explanation is provided by the Cloud Appreciation Society:

Few of us like to be the first to take the plunge. We hold back at the water’s edge, waiting for others to dive in. Clouds are much the same, as is demonstrated by the phenomenon of a ‘fallstreak hole.’

Layers of high cloud, such as cirrocumulus or the high altocumulus, shown above, are often composed of water that is much colder than 0degC but hasn’t frozen into ice crystals. When water is in the form of tiny droplets suspended in the air, it can behave rather differently from that in an ice tray in the freezer. It can stubbornly refuse to freeze, remaining as ‘supercooled’ liquid at temperatures of –10, –15, –20degC… None of the droplets want to be the first to freeze, and they tentatively wait as liquid, until some brave souls decide to make their move.

For reasons that are none too clear, a particular region of supercooled cloud can throw caution to the wind and decide to freeze into ice crystals that grow and fall below. A hole is left behind, and this spreads outwards as neighbouring droplets are swept up in the excitement and start freezing too.

No sooner have some droplets made the change, than they are all joining in. How appropriate, that the trail of falling crystals can look like a bird taking flight.

Several people wound up photographing the hole punch cloud and posting images on Twitter or Facebook, or on Global BC’s Facebook page.
It was unclear whether these were the same hole punch clouds or others. Either way, it’s a fascinating phenomenon.

Mysterious 'bright green' fireball spotted over Colorado

So it's true: The early bird gets the fireballs.

Coloradans who were up before the sun on Wednesday morning saw a "bright green" fireball soar across the sky before it burned out over the mountains.

SEE ALSO: The jawdropping footage only a dashcam could capture

More than 60 eyewitnesses filed sightings on the American Meteor Society's website.

Greg Moore, an analyst and contributor at Weather5280, told Mashable he was driving over the top of Vail pass, west of Denver, just before 6 a.m. local time when "a bright green fireball caught my eye."

The object had a "flaming tail with a long trail behind it," Moore said. "As it moved towards the far horizon it started to flame out, but even after the tail was gone a bright orange ball was still visible till it disappeared beyond the far mountain range."

"It was pretty incredible," he said.

Snapchat user Joel Jimenez sent Mashable video he caught from a Home Depot parking lot in Fort Collins.

Brian Paulson, a software engineer, caught the fireball on his car's dash cam while driving about 15 miles north of Pueblo, Colorado. A second man caught it on his dash cam from Denver.

Colorado resident Nate Hershey told Mashable he was getting his kids dressed on Wednesday morning and happened to look out the window when the object was streaking across the sky.

"The head was bright white, and it had a deep orange tail with what looked like sparks falling behind, moving very slowly for a meteor," he said.

"I had time to put my 1 year old down, grab my four year old, climb onto my bed and hold him up to the window for a few seconds before it faded," Hershey said. "At the end, the tail appeared to be an eerie green with a slight blue tint as it disappeared."

"I've seen a lot of meteors in my day but this must have been the most spectacular "I've seen a lot of meteors in my day but this must have been the most spectacular, lasting for what seemed like around 10 seconds," he said.

The fireball, which could have been a meteor, satellite debris or a warning shot from an alien warship, was first reported on Twitter.

Others reported seeing the fireball on 9News's Facebook page.

We've reached out to NASA to see what's up.

Fireball
September 7, 2015
-  A massive fireball, believed to be a meteorite, has fallen on Thailand. Awestruck commuters witnessed the spectacle, describing a green and orange glow, as it took a nosedive toward Earth. Sisawat district in Kanchanaburi province described seeing the meteorite and heard a thunderous explosion.  Some even reported hearing two explosions, so a team of rescue workers was dispatched to where the crash site was assumed to be.

Halloween Asteroid: How Close It Will Pass by Earth

How's this for eerie timing?

An asteroid that was only just discovered on Oct. 10 is set to whiz past Earth on Halloween, marking the closest encounter our planet has had with one of the massive speeding rocks since 2006, according to NASA.

NASA Offers Daily Look at Earth From Space

Coming within 1.3 lunar distances -- that's 310,000 miles -- the asteroid, called 2015 TB145, will brush past Earth but presents no threat to humans, NASA scientists said, noting the asteroid has an estimated diameter of between 525 feet and 2,000 feet.

Described as having an "extremely eccentric" orbit and appearing "cometary in nature," NASA said this asteroid is incredibly fast and predicts it will zoom past Earth at 78,000 miles per hour.

"The flyby presents a truly outstanding scientific opportunity to study the physical properties of this object," NASA officials wrote. It's worth noting this asteroid was only discovered days ago, but its next close encounter with Earth is expected to happen in a dozen years from now, in August 2027.

SPACE JUNK to go CLUNK
October 29, 2015
-  Space debris may soon land in the Indian Ocean.  Official name WT1190F, probably a NASA remnant.  The object is quite small, expected to completely burn up in the atmosphere aound Nov. 13.

-  A spooky asteroid will invade the Halloween sky as it passes close by Earth.
Asteroid 2015 TB145, nicknamed Spooky, was spotted on October 10, 2015 by Hawaii.
Spooky will pass near our moon and then the Earth on October 31

Fireballs are falling to Earth this week in numbers we won't see for another 10 years — here's how to watch
11/9/15

Keep your eyes peeled this week for some spectacular fireballs — extremely bright meteors — lighting up the sky, like this one caught on camera in Thailand November 2:

Right now, Earth is passing through Comet Encke's tail, generating the Taurid meteor shower in the process.

"The best time to view the Taurids is from midnight to 3 am local time," NASA wrote in a Reddit AMA. "There should be a handful per hour. Taurid rates are not high, but the ones you will see will be very bright."

The peak of the shower — when we can see the most meteors per hour — will be the evening of Wednesday, November 11. But Monday and Tuesday night are also a good time to sit back and look up, weather permitting.

The best way to watch any meteor shower is to get far away from city lights and look up, no special equipment required. Here's a map from AccuWeather showing where the best spots in the country are to see the Taurids Monday night:

See the Moment Fireball Streaked Across Night Sky
11/20/15

Check out the moment a meteor zoomed across the night sky, getting bigger and brighter as it moves toward the horizon.

Steve Hart, who lives in Anderson Township in Cincinnati, Ohio, said he was astounded when he saw the footage his camera captured Thursday night.

"This camera records movement and stores it up to 6 days, and when I saw this, I pulled it off of the DVR and saved it to my computer," he wrote to ABC affiliate WCPO. "I wish I would have been outside to see it!"

It's been a big week for sky gazers, who were treated to the annual Leonids meteor shower, which reached its peak Wednesday night.

With an estimated 15 meteors per hour streaking across the night sky, this year's show was quieter than previous years. The annual Leonids meteor shower happens when Earth passes through the debris left by Comet Tempel-Tuttle, which takes 33 years to orbit the sun. When the comet is at its closest, the Leonids can be astounding, with anywhere from hundreds to thousands of meteors blitzing across the sky.
