Meteor/Fireball Caused Explosion Heard From Northern Nevada To Southern California – April 22, 2012



A loud explosion heard across much of Nevada and California on Sunday morning rattled homes and prompted a flood of calls to law enforcement agencies on both sides of the Sierra Nevada, some reporting fireball sightings.

The sound and the light show were likely caused by a meteor that entered Earth’s atmosphere, astronomers said.

Dan Ruby of the Fleischmann Planetarium at the University of Nevada, Reno, says the reports indicate the meteor broke up above Earth somewhere over the Sierra southwest of Reno.

No earthquakes were reported by USGS for that location and time. A meteor was indeed seen around the same time, but its fishy as to whether or not it is truly related to the persistent rumbling, which we hear an officer make mention of in this scanner audio.

  1. Those rumbles and sounds heard in Nevada, is part of the wake up call from the Caldera under Old Faithful hot water springs. Contact the local geologists, and they will verify, that this Giant underground is busy waking up
    sooner than expected.
    Anyone living in that area, should know what I am talking about. Perhaps a good time to get out before July 2012 !
