New Indian Express reports on one of a number of fireballs that were seen in Kerala last night:
"A portion of one of the mysterious fireballs seen in the sky at several places in Kerala on Friday night is likely to have landed at Karumaloor in Paravoor near here. Immediately after the fireball was sighted at Karumaloor, fire broke out on a vacant one-acre plot in the area. The plot now has a large circular patch of burnt grass.
But there was no crater, baked soil or any foreign object to confirm whether the fireball had actually hit the ground, and whether it was really a meteorite, as presumed earlier."
Kerala has been the site of a number of very unusual meteor falls, and of a ‘red rain’ of living material that fell in 2001. For Unknowncountry.com’s many stories on this topic, click here.
