Meteorite 'photographed' hitting Earth

Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Australian scientists were last night studying what could be the first photograph of a meteorite hitting Earth. The photograph was taken by keen amateur photographer. The meteorite, which could have been as small as a grain of sand, would have been travelling about 30,000km/h and hit the top of a 20m lamp post which could be seen clearly in the photograph.



Imagine, the chances of an impact being captured on film are millions to one. :)

I'll be going for a long holiday beginning this Friday for 2 weeks. This time, I'll be covering Taiwan, HK and Macau. As usual, I hope to blog my journey as I go and try to upload it via Pocket Blog. :D
