Ravi Jagtiani-
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!
