Electric Universe

Rick : Is electric (hair raising) atmosphere a common observation at the site of a meteorite landing?


PS Worth reading : The Electric Universe Theory


Electric fields--there is a theory that the meteor shorts out the E-layer of the ionosphere at 100 to 125 km altitude.  It's charged to about 250 kV.  A big meteor streaks down through that to 30km, and it's ionized trail allows a discharge of around 20 coulombs of charge to hit the ground there.

 In fact, another theory says this sudden surge in electric field can cause noises to occur in leaves or conductive items nearby (like frames of eye-glasses or fine hair).  So people can instantly hear rustles or crackles from a meteor 40km away, instead of having to wait for the speed of sound to conduct the sonic boom to them two minutes later (at 0.33 km/second).

 I have one security guard here at the college who claims he heard that meteor instantly during the flash.  Me I didn't hear it in my car, and my microphone on my dashcam didn't hear it.
