And for those of you that may not have heard:
Mars is getting in on the game. A comet is passing ~1/3 earth-moon distance away from Mars real soon (the 19th of next month).
C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring)
Just about everything out there will be looking at it. And the orbiters are going to be hiding behind the planet away from most of the debris.

Asteroid to Fly By Earth "Safely" on January 26
This is closest known flyby until 2027. Undoubtedly there will be closer flybys, but not by anything currently known.

A potentially new large crater
Mile-wide Mysterious Ring in Antarctica Might be Meteorite Impact Crater
Quote:
A mile-wide impact crater found in the Antarctic ice sheet may have been created by a meteorite, perhaps the size of a house, smashing into the Earth in 2004.
This is significant. I can foresee that people will be put on the ground there, even at great risk to life and limb.

Wow- Very Neat. There are remarkably few pictures so far that I can find on the internet. Its certainly the right time of year to be down there exploring the crater, though. Hope they're getting to it.

If it punched all the way through the ice shelf, could they go ice fishing?

Nice picture of a fireball appearing near Sirius. The southern half of Orion is also in shot.

I like the way you can see the changing colour of the meteor (starting off in the green of ionised air and ending in the red of glowing rock) as the reflection on the water.

Really red rock? That's a genuine question. I ask because red is a common colour in aurorae --- which is definitely ionized air.
