VERY GRAPHIC- India "Meteor-Killed Man" was NOT by Meteorite 09FEB2016
Video and photo below- This video may be inappropriate for some users.Event took place at 1302 Local Time 06FEB2016 according to timestamp on security video. Local news, NEWS X,  broke the original story at 1504 Local time. Photos shown of "meteorite" are not a meteorite. It was mentioned in other reports that "gelatin", dynamite, may have been stored/buried in the garden spot where the "crater" was located and that gardeners had been burning trash at the time of the event. Police claim that their dog detected no explosives and the police later recover a "meteorite" that according to photos released is NOT a meteorite.

Scroll down IF you still wish to see the VERY GRAPHIC photo and video.




Down more.  I want this out of sight for those that require filtering. Thank you!

Police, however, dismissed these initial eyewitness accounts as rumours. They put out the guesswork that the explosion was caused by gelatine sticks buried and abandoned amid the rocks at the time of construction of the college.

They said that the college's gardeners, Sasikumar(42) and Murali (26), were burnt garbage to clean up the garden and inadvertently set off the unused gelatine sticks.

Sources said that Kamaraj and another driver Sultan (57) were drinking water from a water tank in the garden when they were hit by splinters from the meteorite.

Kamaraj fell with bleeding injuries and Sultan sustained minor injuries. Kamaraj was rushed to the government hospital in Vaniyambadi but died on the way.

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting- Remember IF you are looking for a report and no one reports then everyone lacks information; thank you.
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently 3,4 9 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of February 2016. I expect that 10 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end.

Expect some spectacular bolides, fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of 4 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids, diameters ranging from 500m- 2.8.km, that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
Cameras Ready!
