Breaking – bolide over China: 2-4 meter superbolide just fell over southern China! Wed Oct 4, 2017 12:16 pm (PDT) . Posted by: planetaryscience Dear all, Looks like the new CNEOS page has kept much more up to date- just 7 hours ago a bolide traveling 14.6 km/s fell over the northern parts of China’s Yunnan province, near the northern border of Myanmar! They estimate a radiated energy around 192 gigajoules, the making it the most energetic “impact” in several months after the 2017/06/20 event, and the most energetic “impact” over land in over a year since the 2016/06/27 event over Mauritania! It’s the middle of the night in China, so unsurprisingly I haven’t been able to find any photos or new sources on it, but expect the news to catch on in a few hours! This is the largest impact over china since the 2000/12/15 event, and will definitely merit attention in one way or another. ~Sam 4b Re: 2-4 meter superbolide just fell over southern China! Wed Oct 4, 2017 12:43 pm (PDT) . Posted by: tom6740 Hi Sam, There is quite a buzz over the Chinese social media about this event. A video can be found here: http://weibo.com/tv/v/FoR0Lbl7Y?fid=1034:a827d14877a01e2e02f9b2c4bb9a2454 The event occurs at about 8 pm local time, and because it was a holiday in China (mid-autumn day of which there is a tradition of moon-gazing) there are a lot of witnesses. There are also reports about ground shaking after the flash. Unfortunately the area is quite mountainous, so meteorite search would be difficult.
