October 22, 2010 #093 - Unique Meteor Sightings From Collection

In this post I would like to pass along some unique historical meteor sightings that I have collected. The  drawing is from South America and I have no source or date for it. The clippings are from various old periodicals from dates in the 1800's and early 1900's. I think you will agree that some are quite spectacular. It strikes me that the fall in Lake Ontario has a location documented well enough that it might be possible for a boat towing a magnetometer to locate the fall. I'm sure a large diameter iron meteor would set off the detector.
