A significant increase in activity took place at the Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico, with strong ash emissions on the increase as of May 8th 2013. Reports of ash plumes
reaching up to 3 kilometers in height, with explosions and incandescent fragments 7000 meters from the crater. Ash has fallen in San Juan Tianguismanalco, San Pedro, Benito Juarez, and it is possible that more ash will fall in other villages in the east, south-east.
Fireballs On The Rise
The following video is a fireball captured in England and the Whales:
The next fireball was reported in to be the size of a soccer ball, reported in the sky over Fort Collins, according to eyewitnesses the fireball was burning nearly as bright as the sun, which is similar to another fireball that we reported on earlier, streaking across the sky during a concert and turning night into day in a flash.
Here are a few interesting quotes about the fireball that was seen in England Wales:
“It seems that this one was particularly large and particularly bright, which is why it’s caught so much attention,” she told the BBC.
“It’s quite likely to be part of the Eta Aquarids, which is the debris left by Halley’s Comet. And twice a year we pass through the debris left behind by the comet and when this happens we see more of these shooting stars, but there must have been a large lump left behind which is what caused such a bright meteor to be seen.” –www.buzzfeed.com
The question remains, will we all see a similar event to the Russian meteor which injured thousands, and damaged thousands of buildings?
