TODAY NICARAGUA NEWS – With a boom and a crater, it must be a meteorite. The is the logic behind the “meteorite” theory that narrowly missed the populated areas of Managua Saturday night.

According to the Discovery website, meteorite experts are skeptical that the event was caused by a meteorite at all.

“For something to produce a hole in the ground that big, it would have generated a very bright fireball. And nothing was reported … despite the population,” said Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office. “So I’m very skeptical,” writes Ian O’Neill.

On the side of the skeptical is the lack of reports of a bright meteor associated with the impact by Managua’s population of some 1.5 million.

Nicaraguan authorities say they recovered samples from inside and outside the crater, but since the country does not have testing abilit y they are being sent to the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Authorities are also going to request of the United States for a collaborative investigation into the incident.

First Lady Rosario Murillo is inviting the international scientific community to come to Nicaragua and continue their studies.

As for the “meteorite” being associated with asteroid 2014 RC, astronomers from NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program told the Associated Press that the two events were not linked. 2014 RC flyby happened 13 hours after the Nicaraguan event.

So the only two pieces of evidence that hint it was a meteorite impact is that 1. there’s a crater and 2. there was a loud boom.

Coincidentally, these two pieces of evidence are also associated with (you guessed it) bombs. Cooke pointed out that a more likely explanation is that it was “someone out blowing things up.”

The crater is also located near a Nicaraguan air force base. An air force base. Let’s think about that for a minute.
