As one has told you folks on many occasions meteroites do not soar over anything,they just lie in or on the ground doing nothing,meteors are astonomical objects, meteorites are geological objects,no one has ever seen a meteorite flying through the air, meteors fly through the air when they hit the ground and are stationary then they become meteorites.

Anyway, they don't soar, they plummet.

I have seen flying meteorites when the catches on the display case I was carrying came undone. The large iron meteorite just missed my foot...

Recognise that "meteorite" ...?
This is the ISS crew descending on Earth, riding space scooters, to get news about their refueling ?
We should see them soon on their way back up.

Looks a quadracamel from either Wantooloose or Ceeadlewash. It's travelling pretty fast so it's probably the latter. ;)

Assuming that it's a meteor, once it's a meteorite, then round here, certain local characters would be after it to sell it for scrap - less trouble than nicking lead or tiles from church roofs!
