Ever tried using voice recognition software - the effect is pretty much the same!

I'd read a couple days ago that they ruled out the possibility of it being the tool bag that got lost earlier. I'm sure it's around, but I think I read it on the Bad Astronomy blog.

I think the tool bag is still in orbit - accelerating slowly away from the ISS.

I read someone is offering $10,000 for a piece of this - good luck to anyone finding it in the huge rugged space of the Canadian boreal forest even if they had a good idea as to where it came down.

Nice to know that I'm not the only Tony who makes typos. As for that tool bag, I found it by the side of the road today, great grease gun.

Well being from Edmonton, this meteor sure has been the talk around here for the past week. Sadly I never saw this, I was napping at the time.

Was it a meteor or the tool bag, well here's some food for thought for the conspiracy theorists... coincidence.

Japan fails in antiballistic missile test in space

Missile test by Japan's Maritime Self-Defense Force fails

Interesting posts in the news today:

Quote:
Infrasound records now show that meteorite likely weighed 10 tonnes before breaking apart in several explosions.

University of Calgary researcher Alan Hildebrand said it entered the atmosphere at a 60-degree angle about 80 km above and just east of Lloydminster at a relatively slow speed of 14 km per second - the average meteorite enters Earth's atmosphere at 20 km per second.
Quote:
University of Calgary researcher says the meteorite that fell Thursday was an asteroid fragment weighing about 10 tonnes, and expects that chunks of it are in a region of western Saskatchewan.

The public response to this fireball has been the largest that we have ever had in Canada," said Alan Hildebrand, Canada Research Chair in planetary science and co-ordinator of the Canadian Fireball Reporting Centre at the University of Calgary.
"Thanks to everyone's help, we are now beginning to delineate the trajectory of the fireball, so that its prefall orbit can be determined. We have also outlined an area where its meteorites may have fallen, although we will have more precise predictions to come."
People will be out looking for whatever they can find to solve this mystery. Maybe in the end after finding a ring of metal, one person will report " Look, sir: Droids".

I was kidding about the tool bag. That meteor(ite) was no tool bag.

Awesome news on the meteor from last week.

Meteorite pieces found in Saskatchewan

Scientists find space rock that streaked through skies of Western Canada



The remains of a meteor that exploded in the sky near the Alberta/Saskatchewan border on Nov. 20 have been located by University of Calgary researchers south of the city of Lloydminster in an area called Buzzard Coulee.

A pretty good size from the pics I will add from the net, they say a size of a fist.
