Megacryometeors: Ice Chunks Falling From a Clear Sky!

Megacryometeors: The phenomenon of abnormally large chunks of ice falling from a clear sky is giving rise to an interesting debate. Are they real? Are they from God? Are they a consequence of 'Global Warming'?

Not Ice Megacryometeor, interesting nonetheless.

In a N.Y. Times article speculating on the possibility that a meteor shower caused this incident, Gareth Williams, an astronomer at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, based in Cambridge, Mass. said β€œIn a good year, there are 100 meteors an hour.”

It seemed like a solid clue, at least until Mr. Williams added, β€œI am unaware of any case where a meteorite is proven to have fallen as a result of a meteor shower.”

Many meteorites fall to earth every day, Mr. Williams said, most of them into the sea or the vast unpopulated parts of the earth. Once or twice a year, they hit a house or a car, he added.

If there are 100 meteors hitting the earth every hour and only one or two of these actually hit a house or car, makes you wonder how many megacryometeors are hitting the earth everyday if three have hit homes and cars within two weeks and several more doing similar damage in greater numbers in 2006!
