One of a number of pictures taken of a meteor that streaked our western skies Sunday morning


Meteor against a northern Nevada hillside

Here is one of many pictures taken of the meteor that streaked south-to-north from Las Vegas to northern California Sunday morning. It was about 7:55am when the meteor streaked across the clear blue skies of Nevada, culminating in a loud thunder clap and boom as the meteor entered the earth’s atmosphere and finally broke up. The size of the meteor was estimated by various scientists as either the size of a softball or something as large as a washing machine.

Telephone calls to 9-1-1 were too numerous to count. The boom set off alarms at a Walmart in Carson City, about thirty miles south of Reno. Divided scientific opinion claimed that the meteor was either a rogue space traveler that just happened to be passing through or that it was part of some space debris left behind by a comet that was in this neck of the solar system during one of its four hundred year revolutions around the Sun.
