Approaching Memphis on Hwy 64 sometime around 9pm I witnessed a meteorite streak across the sky from northeast of Memphis and then disappear as though it went behind a curtain. I suppose it must have disintegrated when it hit our atmosphere. But, man oh man, it was so exciting to witness this for myself so close to home!! I would love to know if anyone else witnessed it also. Thank you so much.- Mary Jane W.

The NEOShield project has been set up to carry out a detailed analysis of the open questions relating to realistic options for preventing the collision of a NEO with the Earth. The aim of the project is to provide solutions to the critical scientific and technical issues that currently stand in the way of demonstrating the feasibility of the promising mitigation options with a test mission. While a mitigation test mission is beyond the financial scope of the current project, the NEOShield team aim to provide detailed test-mission designs for the most feasible mitigation concepts, so that it will be possible to quickly develop an actual test mission at a later stage.

Beautiful Fireball captured on goiás last night!
I managed to achieve some results very bo0ns despite the capture hard, very luminous. It was a sporadic meteor, from almost exactly the antihelion. The Fireball hit maximum magnitude of-4,8 and spent about 42 km of Catalan. Your total duration was 2,3 seconds.
The altitude of initiation of luminosity was 81 km and its final altitude of 49 km. What was amazing in that fireball the low altitude reached in relation to their entry angle of 89°, the ablation (the loss of weight from the surface of the meteor vapour, rendered or as droplets) was intense. With a density mechanical force calculated 2,97 DYN / cm² it was a meteor of low-density, low mechanical strength, similar to mechanical resistance presented by cometary fragments.
What justifies the relatively low altitude that hit, for a body with this resistance, certainly was your average speed of about 22 km / s, "Average-low". If fastest certainly would have disintegrated in at higher altitudes.
In spite of owning a mechanical resistance similar to cometary fragments of its orbit doesn't follow it would be expected for a cometary meteróide: she had a very low slope: 0.1th and its perihelion and aphelion was still inside the asteroid belt.
Like that or it was a bolide impact of a comet of short period (family of Jupiter) or so of an asteroid of low density, maybe highly friable as one that led to the meteor porangaba.
In summary that fireball was very interesting, in addition to beautiful

Belíssimo fireball capturado sobre Goiás na última noite !

Consegui atingir alguns resultados muito bo0ns apesar da captura difícil, muito luminosa. Tratou-se de um meteoro esporádico, provindo quase exatamente do Antihelion. O fireball atingiu magnitude máxima de -4,8 e passou a cerca de 42km de Catalão. Sua duração total foi de 2,3 segundos.

A altitude de início de luminosidade foi de 81km e sua altitude final de 49km. O que foi espantoso nesse fireball a baixa altitude atingida em relação ao seu ângulo de entrada de 89°, a ablação (a perda de massa a partir da superfície do meteoro por vaporização ou como gotículas fundidas) foi intensa. Com uma densidade força mecânica calculada de 2,97 dyn/cm² tratou-se de um meteoro de baixa densidade, de baixa resistência mecânica, similar a resistência mecânica apresentada por fragmentos cometários.

O que justifica a altitude relativamente baixa que atingiu, para um corpo com essa resistência, certamente foi sua velocidade média de cerca 22km/s, "média-baixa". Caso fosse mais veloz certamente teria se desintegrado em altitudes mais elevadas.

Apesar de possuir uma resistência mecânica similar a de fragmentos cometários sua órbita não segue seria esperado para um meteróide cometário: ela possuia uma inclinação muito baixa: 0.1º e seu afélio encontrava-se ainda dentro do cinturão de asteróides.

Assim ou tratou-se de um meteoróide de um cometa de curto período (família de Júpiter) ou então de um asteróide de baixa densidade, talvez altamente friável como aquele que originou o meteorito Porangaba.

Em resumo esse fireball foi muito interessante, além de belíssimo

New dwarf planet discovered in our Solar System


New dwarf planet (TNO) discovered in our Solar System!
Via: RT
Astronomers at CFHT (Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope), Maunakea, Hawaii, have announced the discovery of 2015 RR245 as part of the ongoing Outer Solar System Origins Survey (OSSOS).
2015 RR245's orbit is highly eccentric, with a semi-major axis of 81.3AU, perihelion of 33.7AU, aphelion of 128.9 AU, inclination of 7.575 degrees and an orbital period of 733 years.
First observed, retrospectively, on 2015-09-09, 2015 RR245 is estimated to be ±700km / 438 miles in diameter, although Dr. Michele Bannister of the University of Victoria in British Columbia also stated: "it’s either small and shiny, or large and dull"
If any of you have, or have access to, the equipment necessary to observe 2015 RR245, it is currently located at RA:00 23 14.73, DEC:+06 00 35.8 with an apparent magnitude of 21.98 (distance 63.85 AU).  As a rough guide,  2015 RR245 is currently located in the constellation of Pisces, a little to the right of Uranus.
Further, detailed, information is available from 2015 RR245 on JPL's SBDB, and also by visiting JPL's Horizons interface and entering "2015 RR245" as the Target Body.  More information about CFHT can be found here.
Click orbit diagram to enlarge.  The hi-res image of 2015 RR245's orbit --showing comparison to other, known, TNOs is available here.
