Link to an article of a piece of the meteor going through a roof and landing on a pillow in Golden BC
Did anyone notice that Ms. Hamilton was apparently asked if she had "plans to take up astrology ... "? Sigh. Depressing. Maybe the questioner considered horoscopes (horrorscopes?) a legitimate way to predict encounters with meteors; but probably not.

Still, it's interesting to think her rock might have caused the fireball over Lake Louise.

It would be more accurate to say that the meteorite that fell through her roof was a remnant of the body that created the meteor. Probably not the only one.
Understood. Late night editing is not so good. :ssmile:
We seem to be traveling through two or three debris streams now.

Thanks, Art, for the references! Interesting stuff. I read The Illustrated Man as a teenager in the mid '60s, but sad to say I don't remember any of it. Ok, so now I have a (re)reading assignment. :ssmile:

Looks like this is indeed the one: https://fireballs.imo.net/members/imo_v ... /2021/6241

Both the Photographer Hao Qin, and Ms Hamilton ("Ruth H") are listed as observers. It is listed as Oct 4 5:30 UT, but local time is Oct 3, 23:17.
