For the past two years, Unknowncountry.com has beenfollowing the ongoing story of ice blocks falling from thesky. Spanish scientists who first studied the phenomenonhave dubbed the ice blocks “megacyrometeors,” AstrobiologistJesus Martinez-Frias has said stated that he’s concernedthat large blocks of ice are forming where they shouldn’t.
Previously, megacyrometeors have generally fallen in winter,but one that fell in Seattle on November 4 is an earlyseason exception. It broke through the roof of a house andfragmented into a child’s bedroom. Nobody was injured in theincident, and the weight of the megacyrometeor could not beestimated because it fractured on impact. However, it wasprobably in excess of 25 pounds, because of the damage itdid to the house.
