Series of large asteroids to fly past Earth, starting tonight
Several large asteroids will pass closely by Earth in coming weeks, USA Today reports. The first, the 525-foot wide 2021 SM3, will whiz past Earth on October 15 according to NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies. Seven larger asteroids are predicted to pass close by Earth before the end of November, the biggest of which, 2004 UE, has a diameter of 1,246 feet, USA Today reports. At 2.1 million miles, asteroid 1996 VB3, will pass closest to Earth on October 20. Scientists say that, although very close by interstellar standards, none of the asteroids will be visible without a telescope. On October 16, NASA will launch a spacecraft, Lucy, on a 12-year mission to observe eight asteroids in Jupiter’s Trojan asteroid field, CNN and the New York Times report. Keep it here for asteroid action and reaction.

Source of the post I haven't read the whole thing, but a lot of people certainly will.  It's a bold claim, since the probability that such an event happened above a city is pretty low.

Looks like the paper has attracted quite a bit of criticism. I have little to weigh in with, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's riddled with confirmation bias.  No amount of circumstantial evidence can outweigh definite evidence.

Mounted a new meteor camera at 1800 masl in Norway today.  This mountain has a spectacular view.  The question is, will the camera just ice up?  Some footage I took:

Russians from Kaliningrad noticed a meteorite. Andrey Sidorov filmed a video where a space body burns up in the atmosphere in the area of Gorky Street on Tuesday, October 26.A bright "star" dives and disappears over the horizon. According to the director of the Kaliningrad Bessel Planetarium, Konstantin Guskov, "several hundred such meteorites fall to the Earth in a day." Their diameter is different - they burn in dense layers of the atmosphere. The meteorite in the video is relatively small. This is not uncommon for the region and for the world as a whole, ”added Guskov.
