According to the news, few people who live their saw something extraordinary; they hear a loud explosion with the green flashlight which appear in the sky. According to the Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo, he commented on the green flash that appears in the sky, and he said that he believes that it may be a meteor. Also, Dr. Valerie Rapson, director of the Dubley observatory at Siena College and also has her Ph.D. in Astrophysics. She presented her point of view ” it sounds exactly like a fireball report. They can surprise people. We can’t always predict them.”
“When these rocks come in, they’re fairly small, but they’re coming in at very high speeds so they can potentially break the sound barrier and actually create this ripple effect that will shake homes or cause explosions,” said Dr. Valerie Rapson. Zurlo said that, according to NASA, the three meteors were coming for earth on December 29, and one of them hit the surface at 11 pm.
Dr. Ropson and later presented her views and said that they are basically made up of iron and nickel. The Iron will produce a yellow glow in the sky, and the nickel contributes to the green flash. Steve Kulls was doing live video podcasts from his home at that time, and he thought it was a tree. He said, “I start walking around the house with a flashlight, and I don’t see any evidence of a tree come down.”
“People should not be nervous about this. NASA is watching for the really big meteors. There are no really big meteors that are going to hit us any time soon,” said Dr. Ropson added to her views. She also mentioned an incident that happened in April 1968. That time also a large meteor fell on earth.
