Lovely photo of the night sky it is so classic yet still wonderful to see as well. This one even has birds in the sky. If you were lucky enough you also have in this image an asteroid that just passed by earth this Monday named 2011 MD flew passed at about 7,500 miles above the surface. Still nice pic of the waxing moon. :)

There was a meteorite this week, I dunno if it the same but it appeared in the scottish skies and flew down to england... exploded in a town garden, it was in the local news :phew:

Thank you :ahoy:

No the one I spoke of never came to earth but remained 7,500 miles above the surface of the earth and was about the size of a small mansion so it would have made a much bigger hole than just in a garden. Who knows it could have been some debris that this asteroid flung off as it passed near the earth.
Interesting I remember a similar experience with a meteorite that happened like ten years ago now, it even when hit the atmosphere looked like sheet lightning, and that initially before it broke apart was around the size of a small car. Even I still has the flyer "Get Cash for Meteorites."

Wow did you manage to find a chunk of it ? I wish I could meteor hunting someday :)

Sadly no but it was within an earshot though when it entered the atmosphere. You might get lucky if you go to the deserts, America, Africa, Asia, and Australia have them, and are easiest to find in those places where their natural Iridium degradation as quickly.

Wow better luck next time, I was told the same but not about the iridium though,what does the iridium do to it ?

Iridium is a naturally occurring element 77 transition metal on the periodic table of the elements. Iridium is like any other element and decays over time, like iron to rust; the thing about that particular element is that it is extremely rare on earth period n the surface and at its core. Iridium is usually found on debris left around from the early solar system, it also is know to have a radioactive side and will decay into lower energy smaller atoms commonly iron or copper and other various ones like that, and heat like lets say like in the formation of the earth would have speed along that process of radioactive decay to lighter metals.
Meteorites do not just have to be metals either, some could be made of lighter materials like silicates which is more or less what an object would be if it were sat a comet but not always.
