Seismic Sensors Triggered By Fireball’s Explosion Over Greenland

A fireball that exploded over Greenland shook the planet so much that it triggered seismic sensors to go off.  The event occurred back on July 25, but it was the first ever meteor to shake the Earth so violently that it caused a seismic event.

At approximately 8:00 p.m. local time on that day, residents of the town of Qaanaaq on Greenland’s northwestern coast reported seeing a bright light in the sky and feeling the ground shake as a meteor combusted over the nearby Thule Air Base, according to Live ScienceThat phenomenal event was detected by more than just human observers though.

According to unpublished research presented on December 12 at the annual conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), that fleeting event triggered a seismic reaction.

Seismographic equipment, which had been installed near Qaanaaq just a few months earlier to monitor how ground shaking affected the ice, also recorded the fiery meteor blast. The Qaanaaq fireball provided scientists with the first evidence of how an icy environment — and, possibly, a distant ice-covered world — could respond to a meteor impact.

The first sign of the meteor was a brilliant flash in the sky over Greenland; the meteor was at its brightest at an altitude of approximately 27 miles (43 kilometers) above the ground, and it was traveling at nearly 54,000 mph (87,000 km/h), according to the International Meteor Organization (IMO). –Live Science

Many who witnessed the meteor’s explosion over Greenland said it was like a bomb going off, and the seismic measurements agreed. With a calculated impact energy of 2.1 kilotons of TNT, this blast was the second-most-energetic fireball of the year, Live Science previously reported.

The recordings were captured by the seismic sensors and interpreted by two Danish Seismological Network broadband stations in Greenland: TULEG (Station Thule) and NEEM (Station Eemian). Seismic equipment picked up tremors from the impact location as far as 218 miles (350 km) away. The scientists were then able to identify the seismic event that matched the arc of the traveling ground waves and estimate the impact point of the fireball, the researchers reported at AGU. Scientists were then able to pinpoint the epicenter of the event near Humboldt glacier on the Greenland ice sheet.

    Not the first seismic event but certainly significant.

    See Tunguska 1908.

    And it follows that similar events likely happened that caused the demise of the dinosaurs.

    Oh, no! The poor baby seals.

    One of these days one of those things will hit something, maybe a major city, that is important.

    This kind of article is so cool.

    I love reading stuff like this.

    The world is more than we know 🙂

    Too bad it missed and blew up in the air… a little steeper trajectory and it would have hit nowhere special liberal blue territory. The aliens need to recalibrate their asteroid gun.

    Several news agencies like Forbes picked up an obscure archaelogical discovery that sphericules a meteorite were found at the site of Sodom. It appears that the fire and brimstone that destroyed it in the Bible was likely due to an astronomical event. If you blinked in the last 72 hours, you might have missed the news story, but it certainly was covered by Christian news agencies in more detail.

    If Yahweh destroyed sinful people before, Yahweh can certainly do it again.
