Yet another mystery, on January 17, 2018 a burning and smoking crater has been found next to the highway Torreón – Saltill, between kilometers 165 and 164, in the state of Coahuila, in the northeast of Mexico.
The media speculates that a meteorite has smashed into the ground leaving the burning crater, which measures 8 meters diameter and is 8 meters deep, however, pieces of the supposed meteorite have not been found.
So far, there is no official confirmation on this event!
Many people from around have witnesses mysterious bright flashes in the skies followed by sonic booms and large explosions and the cause is always a meteorite or some sort of space debris according to the official statements, but is that really the case?
Here are three remarkable “Meteor” events that have taken place in recent days.
January 7, 2018: A mysterious bright flash accompanied by large explosions, where even the ground was shaking and felt over thousands of miles in Russia (See here our article on the Russia event).
January 10, 2018: A bright flash and a huge explosion occurred at around eight in the evening left residents of a Dallas neighborhood pondering worst case scenarios for its cause.
January 16, 2018: Sonic booms, rattling windows, and a bright flash of light washed over Michigan and surrounding states.
A mysterious bright flash turned night into day over a huge area of Russia on January 7, 2018. The phenomenon was seen and felt over thousands of miles in Russia, especially in the regions Bashkortostan, Udmurtia, and Tatarstan.
The flash accompanied by large explosions, whereby even the ground was shaking and moving according to witnesses was blamed on a UFO visitation or a meteor exploding in the atmosphere.
Russian officials and scientists immediately denied that there had been a Russian missile test or any reported space rock crashing to earth, but it is clear that something unprecedented has taken place in the sky.
It reminds us the Tugunska event from June 30, 1908 when a huge explosion, which came out of nowhere, ripped through the air above a remote forest in Siberia, near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River and flattened 2,000 square kilometers of forest.
It is said that in the Tugunska case, a UFO has destroyed itself by crashing into an object to save Russia with as a result that the object is thought to have disintegrated at an altitude of 5 to 10 kilometers rather than to have hit the surface of the earth.
It’s a long shot, but scientists are about to listen very closely for radio signals from our solar system’s first known interstellar visitor
| Ever since its discovery in mid-October as it passed by Earth already outbound from our solar system, the mysterious object dubbed ‘Oumuamua (Hawaiian for “first messenger”) has left scientists utterly perplexed. Zooming down almost perpendicularly
By Lee Billings
inside Mercury’s orbit at tens of thousands of kilometers per hour—too fast for our star’s gravity to catch—‘Oumuamua appeared to have been dropped in on our solar system from some great interstellar height, picking up even more speed on a slingshot-like loop around the sun before soaring away for parts unknown. It is now already halfway to Jupiter, too far for a rendezvous mission and rapidly fading from the view of Earth’s most powerful telescopes. … this Wednesday at 3 p.m. Eastern time, the Breakthrough Listen project will aim the West Virgina-based 100-meter Green Bank Telescope at ‘Oumuamua for 10 hours of observations in a wide range of radio frequencies, scanning the object across its entire rotation in search of any signals. Breakthrough Listen is part of billionaire Yuri Milner’s Breakthrough Initiatives program, a collection of lavishly-funded efforts aiming to uncover evidence of life elsewhere in the universe. Other projects include Breakthrough Starshot, which intends to develop and launch interstellar probes, as well as Breakthrough Watch, which would use large telescopes to study exoplanets for signs of life.
If ‘Oumuamua is in fact artificial, the reasoning goes, it might be transmitting or at least leaking radio waves.

| New data reveal that the interstellar asteroid that recently zipped through our solar system is rocky, cigar-shaped, and has a somewhat reddish hue. It’s the first confirmed object from another star observed in our solar system, and was discovered Oct. 19 by the University of
Hawaii’s Pan-STARRS1 telescope team, funded by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program. The telescope team named it ‘Oumuamua (oh MOO-uh MOO-uh) – Hawaiian for “a messenger from afar arriving first.” The unusually-shaped asteroid, which is up to a quarter mile long and perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide, may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

Hawking is leading an investigation into whether the first object ever to arrive from OUTSIDE our solar system is a spaceship from an alien civilisation.
| The first mysterious object to reach our solar system was originally thought to be a comet or an asteroid from within the system.
But, scientists realised it was neither and had travelled unimaginable disatances through interstellar space at almost 200,000 mph.
By Matt Drake
Now, a scientific body led by Stephen Hawking is now trying to decipher whether the “cigar-shaped” object is an alien probe or a previously unseen natural phenomenon.

| Our solar system has a visitor. It’s cylindrical, dark and reddish, a quarter-mile long. The object won’t be staying. This fall, astronomers announced that the thing came blazing into our neck of the galaxy at speeds of up to 196,000 mph. It is now headed away as quickly as it came.

The Washington Post
The object’s trajectory is so strange and its speeds are so blistering that it probably did not originate from within our solar system. Its discoverers concluded that the object is a rare interstellar traveler from beyond our solar system, the first object of its kind observed by humans.
Some scientists, though they are swift to say ‘Oumuamua is probably natural, have not yet ruled out more extraordinary origins. “The possibility that this object is, in fact, an artificial object — that it is a spaceship, essentially — is a remote possibility,” Andrew Siemion, director of the Berkeley Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Research Center, told The Washington Post on Monday.

A mysterious 3-mile-wide asteroid is going to buzz our planet before Christmas.
Although NASA has classified it has a ‘potentially hazardous asteroid’ and Russian astronomers have warned that the object will fly past ‘quite close there is no chance it will hit us as it will pass 6.4 million miles from Earth on December 17, 2017.
The huge asteroid 3200 Phaethon is named after the Greek demi-god who according to the legend, borrowed the sun chariot from his father the God Helios, however, Phaethon was unable to control the horses and nearly set the Earth on fire due to the misdriving of the sun’s chariot before being killed by Zeus who was forced to kill Phaethon with a thunderbolt to avoid a disaster.
The asteroid 3200 Phaethon is the long-sought parent body of the Geminids meteor shower. The meteor shower which can be seen from December 4-16, 2017 reaching its peak around December 13 while asteroid 3200 Phaethon will also be bright enough to see in small telescopes.
Phaethon which means ‘the shining one’ will probably bring some nice fireworks in the sky.
The live feed Sky Cam from Air Live captured the moment a mysterious unidentified flying object speeding across the sky above Heathrow Airport, London before it disappeared, on November 19, 2017.
The object in the sky was just seconds ahead of a landing plane though it is not clear how far away it was from the plane.
Some people suggest it was a shooting star, while others say it was a meteor, space debris or a UFO.
Speaking to MailOnline, Clemens Rumpf, from the University of Southampton specialized in studying space debris, said: ‘My hunch is that this was a large meteor about one meter in diameter at an altitude of 30 to 70 km”, but some people disagree with the explanation give.
Whether the object was a UFO, shooting star, meteor or space debris it remains unclear what the object might have been.
