Meteorite Strike or Hoax?
Wayne Pryde believes that he has taken the first photograph ever to capture the image of a meteorite striking the earth
. He was taking pictures of clouds when he happened to get this photograph of what might be a grain-of-sand-sized meteorite hitting the Earth. But meteor experts aren't so sure. They're not yet crying hoax (Mr. Pryde swears that he hasn't digitally altered the photo), but they don't think the photo shows a meteor impact. However, they have no idea what else it might be. The Astronomy Picture of the Day site has put up a hi-res version of the image
and is asking for help from the internet community. Maybe somebody online can figure out what this thing is.
