Utah Meteor Lands Inside Area 52

by , under Misc

There was big news in the meteorite community last week when a huge bolide was seen exploding over Utah. Multiple cameras caught the meteor as it burst in the skies. Below is a compilation video from youtube that shows the sight from four different security videos.

After a week of gathering information and plotting the trajectory, senior scientist and meteor trajectory expert Rob Matson has estimated the meteorites from this fall have landed inside a secret US military base the size of Rhode Island called Dugway Proving Grounds. The US Army claims to use this gigantic base to test chemical, biological and radioactive weapons and says they have blown up thousands of bombs in the area (and continue to do so). The base is considered so dangerous large parts of it are off limits even to Army personnel. UFO theorists call the base Area 52, in large part because of the UFO sightings that have been reported over or around it. Rumor has it the Roswell UFO wreckage and government alien research program was transferred from Area 51 to the Dugway Proving Ground after its cover was blown in the 1950s.

Here’s what the US General Accounting Office has to say about Dugway Proving Grounds:

“Dugway Proving Ground is a military testing facility located approximately 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. For several decades, Dugway has been the site of testing for various chemical and biological agents. From 1951 through 1969, hundreds, perhaps thousands of open-air tests using bacteria and viruses that cause disease in human, animals, and plants were conducted at Dugway… It is unknown how many people in the surrounding vicinity were also exposed to potentially harmful agents used in open-air tests at Dugway.”

Dave Rosenfeld, president of Utah UFO Hunters, has this to say about Dugway:

“Numerous UFOs have been seen and reported in the area in and around Dugway…[military aircraft can’t account for] all the unknowns seen in the area. It might be that our star visitors are keeping an eye on Dugway too…[Dugway is] the new area 51. And probably the new military spaceport.”

The new military spaceport? So maybe that wasn’t a meteor after all…
