Venus and New Moon - June 14th, 2010

The yellow streak in the middle left looks a bit like a squiggly meteor or a UFO, but its actually a firefly.



Here’s a closeup of the moon right before it set.

    Hey Norm.

    We are working on the june 24th one. Almost have it pinned down. Looks like it fell just NW of Harrisburg. There are some good candidate radar returns that are being analyzed now. Also working the plotting, trying to get witness interviews and hopefully find more data.

    From the early trajectory its looking like this one might be in the Appalachian mountains. I’ll be doing a post about it tonight.
