The herd has exceeded the carrying capacity of the range.
Time for nature to do some culling.

Had an associate killed riding this last week.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, which is why we call it the present.

Nobody gets out alive.

Timing is EVERYTHING... had this occurred back in the '60s the USSR would probably have launched a nuclear attack against the US believing this event was an American attack.

:goodluck:

Russian meteorite was unrelated to asteroid 2012 DA14, which made a safe pass by Earth today... The estimated size of the object, prior to entering Earth's atmosphere, has been revised upward from 49 feet (15 meters) to 55 feet (17 meters), and its estimated mass has increased from 7,000 to 10,000 tons. Also, the estimate for energy released during the event has increased by 30 kilotons to nearly 500 kilotons of energy released.

More than 1200 injured, and more than 3000 buildings damaged. :eek:

:eek: Hell of a coincidence that it snuck in while looking for the larger one to make its safe pass, and only 60 miles from nuclear powerplant...

NASA Rules Out Earth Impact in 2036 for Asteroid Apophis.

The April 13, 2029, flyby of asteroid Apophis (three-and-a-half football fields wide :eek:) will be one for the record books. On that date, Apophis will become the closest flyby of an asteroid of its size when it comes no closer than 19, 400 miles (31,300 kilometers) above Earth's surface.

Probably. I read where these meteorites (when recovered...) are worth SERIOUS $$$!

I know what they say but I'm still not convinced it was a coincidence.
It seems too coincidental that we would have an Astoroid, a meteorite and a large meteor (over the San Francisco bay) all within 24 hours.
I'm not buying that this astoroid flies through space for many thousands of years getting beat up by other space junk and it doesn't have smaller pieces tagging along with it.

True... I like to watch the series Meteroite Men those guys go all over looking for pieces.

As already reported, space experts agree that the Russian meteor that slammed into the atmosphere over Russia’s Urals region, injuring more than 1,000 people, and asteroid 2012 DA14 are not related. It’s just an incredible cosmic coincidence that two historic space rock events should happen within hours of each other.

However, to better visualize the two independent events, computer modeling company AGI has released a simulation of the meteor and the orbital path of asteroid 2012 DA14, proving that they are two very different creatures.

Russian meteor crash animation from AGI; unrelated to asteroid 2012 DA14 close approach.
