It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or "quasi-satellite."... more

Scientists have identified a completely new type of meteorite. - Österplana 65

An 8cm space rock called Österplana 65 was found in a limestone quarry in Thorsberg, Sweden that produces floor tiles. It is said to be chemically distinct from any of the 50,000 other such objects held in collections. Dating suggests the meteorite's parent body was involved in a huge collision in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter some 470 million years ago.

Sharp increase in number of <0.5AU asteroids for current period

Sharp increase in number of <0.5AU asteroids for current period

 In the previous 24-hours, the number of <0.5AU asteroid discoveries for current period (L) has sharply increased from 284 to 1199 (increase of 915).  1 AU = ~150 million kilometers

As of yesterday, the most recent announced discovery was 2016 LJ11 (decimal equivalent = 2016, L, 284).  As of 07:55 British Summer Time, this has been superseded by 2016 LY47 (decimal equivalent = 2016, L, 1199).

Within those 915 new discoveries, none have a close-approach of <10LD - which is quite unusual.

Normally (whatever 'normal' is), 0.7% of the running total <0.5AU discoveries are in the <10LD range, with 0.1% of the running total making a close-approach <1LD.
1 LD = Lunar Distance = ~384,000 kilometers

Remarks:
1) New period "M" starts as of 00:00 Thu-16-June-2016.
2) In comparison, 2015 (periods A-L inclusive) saw a total of 47,551 new <0.5AU discoveries.  For the same period of 2016, so far, there have been a total of 29,742 new <0.5AU discoveries - so we're currently 'down' by 37.5% on last year's totals (so far).

“If tomorrow a meteorite falls in France, we will be able to know where it comes from and roughly where it has landed,” says Jérémie Vaubaillon, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory and one of organizers of the system. Dubbed the Fireball Recovery and InterPlanetary Observation Network, or FRIPON, it was officially inaugurated on 28 May.

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting- Remember IF you are looking for a report and no one reports then everyone lacks information; thank you.
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently  5, 9 15 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of June 2016. I expect that 10-15 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end. Expect some spectacular bolides, fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  the less than 10LD NEOs and 6 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids, diameters ranging from 400m- 2.5.km, that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!

10JUN2016 Lauren Campbell Henrico, VA 2200 6 secs or so Right to left, facing S Red white Very bright- like a firework No Really cool! Never seen anything like it.

10JUN2016 Lynn Swank Lewisburg, PA, USA 22:05 EST. (10:05 pm) Didn't time it, but maybe 30-40 seconds Facing south, moved left to right from far left about 2/3 way across in front of me and then flickered and disappeared Orange (like fire). Bright flash, then began to flicker and disappeared A little brighter than Venus No, single object Photo from smart phone, so not good quality by any means.

10JUN2016 Cathy P MONROE! NC, USA 22:00 / EST / PM 7 Seconds We were facing EAST, saw it dropping diagonally, moving from right to left. It disappeared behind tree level. Bright Green and Bright White Same as the moon. Yes, it looked like it was on fire, and pieces were sparking. It was amazing! We've never seen such a bright meteor. Thought a plane was crashing. Husband saw it with me, he is an AF veteran. Heart was pounding.

10JUN2016 Julie Carnes I was coming down Highway 85 towards Burlington North Carolina Friday night June 10th between seven and 8 o'clock and it looked like a plane was crashing at first but it was I am assuming a meteor! Huge streak of light blues and greens then a big flash and it was gone! I've never seen anything like it it was pretty amazing definitely happened wish I could have grabbed my camera faster!
