Meteor fireball explodes over Perth, Australia

It lit up the sky at 7:40 p.m. last night (7:40 a.m. EDT yesterday).

YouTube caption:


Dozens of phone calls have been made to the Perth Observatory after people reported "a giant fireball" above southwest Australia.

The fireball is believed to have been a meteor that entered the Earth's atmosphere at speeds of up to 20km per second, according to the observatory.

Scientists from Curtin University are investigating whether the meteor completely burned up in the atmosphere or hit the ground near York, a town about 100km east of Perth.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Sausage


"Peanut butter, cherry jelly, and a hint of cayenne pepper and cilantro blended into a quarter-pound sausage."

New this year at the Minnesota State Fair, which runs through Labor Day, September 3.

What're you waiting for? 

Flautist is beside herself with anticipation, I'm told.
