Meteorite Crash in Peru

People watch a crater in Carangas, Puno, Peru, Monday, Sept. 17, 2007, caused by a supposed meteorite that crashed in southern Peru over the weekend causing hundreds of people to suffer headaches, nausea and respiratory problems, a health official said Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2007.

Local residents told reporters that a fiery ball fell from the sky and smashed into the desolate Andean plain near the Bolivian border Saturday morning. However, experts are not completely certain that there was no contamination, by the”toxic” fumes emanating from the crater, which is some 65 feet wide and 15 feet deep.

    On June 23 at about 2010 hrs I happened to look up as a meteor passed by in between Whanganui and New Plymouth and heading for the Volcanic Plateau: very bright in red , gold and orange; incandescent and hurtling through the sky appearing parallel to the horizon and about 2 cm above it; with a long thin tail.
    I felt like I had entered into direct experience.
    Truly amazing.

    I left a message in 2009 . Just found it and realised the date of that meteor was May 23. There were three more meteors that winter that I saw and the last one was on nightshift standing outside with two colleagues and telling them my meteor story and i just said the word meteor and Lee said there’s one and pointed to the right and it passed directly in front of us over Stanford and when it was directly in front of us it split into two.
