What in the HELL fell out of the SKY in Arkansas this morning, ROSAT hit here, activate GLP, lets find this thing
US Strategic Command is saying the German ROSAT satellite hit In Northern Thailand, I call Bullshit



This morning I was woken up by a text message and then a subsequent call from my mother about what I beleive was a large object reentering the atmosphere and striking the ground in Arkansas.

My mother is not into conspiracies and does not know much about space weather, satellites, meteors, ect.


Here is how it happened:

She was driving from Fayetteville to Little Rock. At around 7:00am both her and my step-father saw something plumeting towards earth that startled them so much they ended up pulling over.

She said it was so large it looked to be about the size of a coke can in the sky if the can was held outstretched in your hand away from your face. Both her and my step-father said that they say green, yellow, and a large tail.

Most important they said it was moving fast, really fast, and they say it went down near the horizon which means impact was likely.


They were near Winslow, AR. I will post the map below. This means that the thing is in Devils Den state park or Ozark Nation Forrest.

I live up north or I would already be there. I want to find this fucking thing and prove we are the fastest communications network once and for all. It came in fast so if someone saw it that would be great, but you would have to have been looking withing the same 30 seconds.

 Quoting: centrist77


On October 23, sunrise occured at 7:01 AM in Fayetteville. At 6:12 AM CDT a flare from Iridium 97 was visible from Winslow, Arkansas. The Iridum satellite is a constellation of low Earth orbit communications satellites. Flares happen when the antennas on the satellite catch the sunlight and a short, few second brightening, occurs. From the location you provided the magnitude was -4 but, depedning on the exact location, the magnitude could have been as high as -8 which is much brighter than Venus. They do look like a meteor but it is not somthing that hit the ground.

My uncle called last night around 9:30 saying that he saw a green glowing object fall from the sky in our field that we were planting wheat in.
We went out in the pickup in the field looking for the object and to make sure it didn't start a fire in the field or anything. My uncle was already out their scanning around for it but we didn't find anything.

We live about 10 miles from Hickman, Ky in Fulton, Co.

That sounds like an Orionid meteor. Although it may have looked like it could have hit the ground, most metoers burn up around 20-50 miles above the ground

Iridium flares are TINY compared to the size described by the OP (coke can in an outstretched hand)

For something to be that huge, if legitimate and not a hoax then it is something of significance.

There has never been a meteor strike in the entire history of human culture that has been as big as a coke can held in an outstretched hand, as the OP describes. The sizes are not at all comparable.

"Coke can" is not an astronomical description and no they are not tiny, they are extremely bright. As I said, brighter than Venus. Also, the apparent size depends on visually accuity.

1) I was responding to the post from Gabriel's sword, not the OP.

2) Since you have not seen all meteor strikes, and I doubt you have seen any, your statement is useless.

3) "Coke can" is a subject term since it depends on a persons eyesight. Someone who is nearsighted would see distant objects out of focus and out of focus objects appear larger. Other eye problems make the descrpition subjective.

4) Iridum flares are very bright. How many have you seen?

Exactly. Saturday was opening morning of deer and bear Muzzle-loading seasons. There had to be several hundred hunters within that 10 miles.

Distance of somethings are hard to judge ! A meteor 60 miles away made a flash that looked like a welding light in a garage ! We saw the flash but found videos on it the next day and it was over 60 miles away ! Security cameras recorded the flash !
