Live Bliksemontladingen

De teller in het icoon met het onweersbuitje geeft live het actuele aantal bliksemontladingen uit onze regio weer. De dekking ligt in een vierkant om Nederland en België, waardoor er ook data van rondom Parijs, op de Noordzee en uit een deel van Duitsland wordt weergegeven.

Ontladingen

De ontladingen kun je terugvinden op de Google Maps kaart onderaan de pagina. Deze worden nog niet live bijgewerkt, voor de meest actuele ontladingen ververs je de pagina. De iconen op de kaart lopen in kleur van Geel naar Rood, waarbij Geel een 'nieuwe' ontlading is en Rood een 'oude'.

Geluid

De teller maakt geluid als het aantal bliksemontladingen verhoogt. Dus, bij een update van 0 naar 1 hoor je geluid. Je kunt dit uitschakelen met het luidspreker icoontje in de balk hierboven.

Sunrise meteor breaks apart over Mississippi and Alabama, US


A bright green meteor streaked across the sky of Alabama and Mississippi around 11:48 UTC (06:48 CDT) on October 12, 2016. The event was seen from Texas to Kentucky.

The American Meteor Society (AMS) received over 290 reports by 18:20 UTC. Witnesses described glowing orange fragments seen while the Sun was rising and the sky was bright.

"Numerous witnesses reported a blue smoke trail lingering for 5 minutes," Mike Hankey of AMS said.

According to Bill Cooke with NASA's Meteoroid Environments Office in Huntsville, Alabama, the meteor was moving 143 200 km/h (89 000 mph) and was seen from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia.

"Unfortunately, all sky cameras in the region had already shut down to protect themselves from the bright Sun, forcing us to rely solely on the eyewitness reports for trajectory analysis," Cooke said.

"Based on these, we can say that the meteor was first seen 104 km (65 miles) above the town of Sawyersville in western Alabama It appears to have fragmented 66 km (41 miles) above Louisville, Mississippi."

Estimates of the brightness indicate that the object weighed about 2.3 kg (5 pounds) and was roughly 12.7 cm (5 inches) in diameter. Given the high uncertainty in the visual reports, a reliable orbit cannot be computed, so the source of this object remains a mystery at this time.

"However, we can definitely say it was a natural object (meteor) and was not associated with the Orionid meteor shower," Cooke concluded.

Here are some photos (and a video) of that bright, green object seen in Louisiana sky

NEW ORLEANS —If you haven't heard by now, an object streaked across the Louisiana sky early Wednesday, prompting queries from the National Weather Service, NASA, local meteorologists and authorities. 
The object was a meteor, NASA said.However, the agency said the source of the object is a "mystery," because no video or photos were seen of the object, so it's tough to determine an orbit and origin.

WDSU obtained several photos of the object from its sister station WAPT in Jackson, Mississippi. 

The photos were submitted by Amy Retcher Dyess, Kory Banks and Jay Bird. Two of the photos showed a bright green object in the sky with a squiggly trail behind it. 

The sightings began being reported at 6:47 a.m.NASA said it received more than 100 reports from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. The National Weather Service received hundreds of reports of the "fireball event." WDSU received dozens of emails and social media posts about the event.

 Unfortunately, NASA said its cameras were turned off when the event happened.
It was first seen 65 miles above Sawyersville, Alabama and moved west at about 89,000 mph. 


"It appears to have fragmented 41 miles above Louisville, Mississippi," NASA said. "Estimates of the brightness indicate that the object weighed about 5 pounds and was roughly 5 inches in diameter."


NASA said that a reliable orbit can't be determined, which means the source of the object is a "mystery" at this time.

What NASA can say, though, is that it was a natural meteor. However, it wasn't part of the Orionid meteor shower.

NASA explains what that bright green fireball was in the Louisiana sky

Fireball object in the Louisiana sky was moving at 89,000 mph, NASA says

NEW ORLEANS —It was bright, green, flying over the Louisiana sky, and more than 100 reports came in to NASA on Wednesday morning about it. 
The sighting was reported about 6:47 a.m. NASA said it received more than 100 reports from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. However, no photos or video of the sighting has emerged.

Unfortunately, NASA said its cameras were turned off when the event happened. 

"All sky cameras in the region had already shut down to protect themselves from the bright Sun, forcing us to rely solely on the eyewitness reports for trajectory analysis," NASA spokeswoman Karen Northon told WDSU. 

The object was a meteor, NASA said. It was first seen 65 miles above Sawyersville, Alabama and moved west at about 89,000 mph.

"It appears to have fragmented 41 miles above Louisville, Mississippi," NASA said. "Estimates of the brightness indicate that the object weighed about 5 pounds and was roughly 5 inches in diameter."

Because of no photos or video, NASA said that a reliable orbit can't be determined, which means the source of the object is a "mystery."

What NASA can say, though, is that it was a natural meteor. However, it wasn't part of the Orionid meteor shower. 

Early Wednesday, local meteorologists, the National Weather Service and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office were working to figure out what it was that was seen in the sky. 

WDSU meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy believed the object could be a meteor. NASA agreed.
