The Airborne Laser May Has Risen Again Turning California Into Ashes!
The Airborne Laser program can be traced back to the Reagan years, and after billions in development dollars were spent and a custom-built 747 prototype was built, what was to be a super-weapon that could shoot down ballistic missiles over their countries of origination turned out to be a super-flop.


Now, with the drastic advances in laser capabilities over the last half-decade, the Defense Department wants to resurrect the airborne laser, albeit in a very different form. Outstream Video

Bright daylight meteor over Iowa and Illinois on July 9th, 2018

Bright daylight meteor over Iowa and Illinois, US

A bright daylight meteor streaked across the sky over Iowa and Illinois, US at 01:40 UTC on July 9 (08:40 CDT, July 8). The event lasted between 7 and 20 seconds.
The American Meteor Association (AMS) has so far received 189 reports. The fireball was seen from Iowa and Illinois to Minnesota, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.
11 people reported sound associated with this event while 79 reported fragmentation.

The estimated 3D trajectory computed by the AMS from the witness reports shows a shallow entry angle, one that could be associated with an Earth-grazing fireball. However, many witnesses reported fragmentation, suggesting the meteoroid actually went through the Earth atmosphere.
