This happened on Wednesday. Nothing in English on this so I'll translate it for you guys.

A very rare event was experienced in Lieto, Finland on Wednesday.

An exploding meteorite caused cracks in the foundation of a house in the area. The police was alerted to the explosion.

Police says in a statement that the immediate area has no construction sites or anything similar that might have caused the explosion. The local residents say they heard a violent explosion, causing the windows to rattle.

Astronomical Association URSA say there are observations of a fireball in the sky in Southwest Finland ​​in the afternoon May 8th. There are around 250 eyewitness reports of the fireball.

URSA's representative stated that the explosion was likely caused by the fact that the meteorite had reached the earth's atmosphere.

Now URSA is saying the explosion was not likely the cause of the damage to the house. 13.gif

These incidents are becoming more and more common. Something out there is disturbing the ort cloud and sending incoming our way.
Just a matter of time until something comes along with a tremendous amount of destructive power.

This one wasn't very big, but was still seen and heard by many.

I can't find any stats on frequency of meteor strikes, whether increasing and decreasing. Isn't anyone plotting Earth's, our Solar System's, our Universe's trajectory through the cosoms? dunno.gif We're so in the dark.

As the sun tows the planets and you and i into and within the galactic center plain of the milky ways disc our solar system is bombarded by much more cosmic debris than usual and just like clockwork whenever that cyclic catastrophe happens the planets and moons are ravaged and torn asunder and another extinction event is unleashed and so the mayans were more or less right,even if they were maybe off by a few months or years and it sure is comforting to know that tptb will be hiding down within their subterranean atomic blast proof bunkers while those who were made to pay for them will be intentionally left upon the surface to face whatever horrors may be coming our way,meaning you and i and i hope and pray those bunkers become their eternal f###en tombs...

If we can study sonic booms, we can certainly think of ways to protect ourselves and our buildings.

You would think the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter is the worst case... Doesn't appear to be so...
