Asteroid Strikes Colombia – American Media Buries It!


Such a colossal event, so little media coverage.

Around 3:10PM Sunday afternoon residents of Colombia were awestruck when the clear sky was cracked open by a massive fireball that exploded upon impact leaving a 300 foot wide crater and a lot of rattled nerves.

This is not the first time this year that an impact event has been underreported.

Colombian authorities confirmed that a “giant fireball” that fell from the sky in the Santander department, central Colombia, was a meteorite.

The Colombian media has been buzzing with eye witness accounts of the fireball, which caused a massive explosion at 3:15PM local time Sunday. reported that Bucaramanga Mayor Fernando Vargas confirmed that the phenomenon was a meteorite that left a crater 100 meters in diameter when it crashed into the earth in the San Joaquin municipality in Santander.


As I started writing this article the top story on CNN was “Dragon Con takes America by storm”, on MSNBC the top story was “Obama assails GOP at Labor Day rally”, and on FOX it was “Obama takes aim at economic woes – and GOP foes”. I looked on each of their websites and not a peep about the impact event in Colombia.

When an object strikes the planet and leaves a huge crater, is it not worthy of western news coverage? Is this event not one of the BIGGER stories in recent times?

Did you know that an asteroid hit Mexico back in February and received no mainstream American media coverage? Here’s a little snippet for you.

Reports are a bit sketchy right now, but apparently a bright flaming object was seen coming down about 100 miles northeast of Mexico City on Wednesday around 18:30 local time. There was a roar that was loud enough to shake buildings. Another news article is reporting a crater 30 meters in diameter was found.

    Needed to compose you a tiny note to finally thank you very much yet again for your personal splendid methods you have discussed above. It is strangely open-handed with people like you to provide publicly all that a number of people would have marketed as an electronic book to generate some bucks for their own end, primarily now that you could possibly have tried it if you ever wanted.

  3. I am way behind on my google reader too but I do enjoy reading your blog. Love the pictures, its the only way I am going to visit your part of the world whether East Coast or West coast!

  4. Ich meine, dass Sie nicht recht sind. Ich biete es an, zu besprechen. Schreiben Sie mir in PM, wir werden umgehen.

  5. you should see the other side of that coin too. There are many thousands of asteroid impacts every year and poor press would hustle on a daily base being accused by causing false hysterias. Be fair yourself, please.
    Often asteroids are disolved or blasted away but there is a whole belt of it around earth and a natural event of all times.
    Right you are about massmedia, is there anybody still watching or dump enough to listen to flat circus from Fox til Washington Post? Burn them or build up fair media yourself. No chance! Our buddies are all up to thin and filtered twitter shortage. Dead of communication and may everybody understand that it is to late to change society but to remove it to the root.
    May asteroids be with us!
