September 2015 NEO Asteroids Close Approaches
c2015 Dirk Ross- Tokyo, Japan
September ALERT- Increased Meteor Activity! 
Expect some spectacular bolides,  fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  5 or 6 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids and 1 comet, diameters ranging from 500m- 2.0km,  that will safely pass this month.

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 known NEO Asteroid discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of September 2015.
I expect that 10 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end.
Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
Cameras Ready!

Bólido (brillante meteoro) en Puerto Rico 8/20/2015 SAC
Posted to YouTube by kevinizooropa 93 views

  A bright meteor was seen from Puerto Rico on the night of August 20, according to Sociedad de Astronomía del Caribe (SAC). The largest astronomy organization on the Caribbean Island says the meteor was seen at about 9:30 p.m. local time. "We got reports from the north and west side of the Island, but it is possible the meteor was also seen from other areas of Puerto Rico, SAC said.
  "It was a beautiful one and we were able to capture some images on our meteor cameras", said SAC. Although there was a recent meteor shower (the Perseids) it seems this meteor was not related to the shower and was a sporadic meteor instead.
  SAC explained this type of meteor is usually associated with small space rocks which generally disintegrate on Earth's atmosphere. Only a few have enough size or mass so that parts of it can survive the atmospheric friction, and reach the surface.
