The cats have just made me jump out of my skin!!!

I was watching the report about the meteorite hit on Skynews and all of a sudden the television went crazy!!! Then I realised it happened just after the 'boys' thundered through (yes, they are playing 'wall-of-death' again!). One of them must have stomped on the remote!!


Phew!

To get through the atmosphere it must have been at least 30 feet in diameter and would have broken up on the way down. The one passing us tonight (7.24pm GMT) is 150 feet! Still small in asteroid terms, but big enough to wipe out a city!! 17,000 miles is a rizla paper in astronomical terms!!

Looks like something from a Lars von Trier film. Or a bad armageddon blockbuster. And it sounds pretty wild too. No wonder the cats went wild!

Ah, I misunderstood: I thought the meteorites on TV had prompted their latest outburst.

Next youíll tell me your cats donít watch TV, right?

At magnitude 7.4 or so it's going to be hard to spot in my light-polluted skies, even with my 7x50s.

Been a funny old week news wise, I even read that the evening the Pope announced he was standing down the top of St Peter's in the Vatican was struck by lightning! Did anybody else read that?

If you go over to the bbc web site they had a video of it, the lightening also defied the old wives tale and struck twice in the same spot, the top of the vatican building.
