Oswego, NY -- Upstate New Yorkers who heard a loud boom or saw a streak of light across the sky Sunday more than likely witnessed a meteor, according to an astronomy expert.
View full size Did a piece of Comet ISON reach Upstate New York? In this photo provided by NASA, a contrast-enhanced image produced from the Hubble images of comet ISON taken April 23, 2013 reveals the subtle structure in the inner coma of the comet. In this computer-processed view, the Hubble image has been divided by a computer model coma that decreases in brightness proportionally to the distance from the nucleus, as expected for a comet that is producing dust uniformly over its surface. ISON's coma shows enhanced dust particle release on the sunward-facing side of the comet's nucleus, the small, solid body at the core of the comet. This information is invaluable for determining the comet's shape, evolution, and spin of the solid nucleus.
"It definitely sounds like a meteor," said Scott Roby, associate professor of astronomy and planetarium director at the State University College at Oswego.

Started crossing it’s debris yesterday kinda makes sense. Will there be more?
Also see related stories here....!

Earth was supposed to pass through through the ISON debris field(if any) this weekend.
Actually it’s outgoing debris field started yesterday through today, then the incoming debris field saturday and Sunday....something like that...lol
polar vortex debris????
We are cloudy now on the East Coast so all we will see is a boom....hopefully not a super boom.....lol
Thanks! I think we’re likely to encounter more in the next few days as we transition ISON’s entry trail of debris. Then there is another chance in the fall when the earth transitions the space inline with where ISON made it’s turn around the sun.
are we sure that boom wasn’t the air being let out of Gov. Christie’s political career ?
Do the “Men in Black” know about this?
I saw a nice-sized one at 4:25am yesterday on the way to work.. big enough to make a wish on. In Austin.
Hey, thanks for that!
Well here’s hoping Earth is good at dodgeball....lol
Fools!! It was not a comet!
I bring you a warning: Everyone of you reading this, tell the world, tell this to everybody wherever they are. Watch the skies. Everywhere. Keep looking. Keep watching the skies.
Or no boom today, boom tomorrow. ALWAYS Boom tomorrow. . . .
Of course, if there was any cosmic justice, the entire inside-the-Beltway would get pelted by meteors. . .
Great site! Thanks! Lots of obs in TX the last couple days reported there.
The answer is “no”.
He’s a little over the top, alright.
lol, need Cajun translation please
This was the approx date for crossing ISON debris. IIRC
I need one of those pieces.
Lots of loose parts be a floating around in his brain :)
thank you :)
If not by a twist of fate, my GGGGG grandfather did not stay in New Orleans after the Battle of NO, but his brother did stay, I might have been a Cajun, with my own island. lol Instead I am a proud Arizonan (4th gen),except for: John McShamnesty, McFlake, and because of the fraud of the “independent” on the redistricting committee, some Dem Reps.
I saw one a little over a week again when I was walking my dog. I live in CT.
Consider his proclaiming the Niburu Chronicles and check out his 'we're all gonna die' scenario with Herculobus, watch/listen to his telling you all about the Dulce battles - it's all on his EweToob site.. (learn all about those sixteen foot - or is it nine foot - whatever, tall aliens living in the cave in Arizona - or was it Nevada - I don't know - that keep real humans as sex slaves.)
Then decide for yourself if he is a reliable source...
Why would you think that? One of his primary sources is the same one you say is reliable. You know, your buddy BPEarthbotch..
Go look at that ‘report a meteor’ website and see who all else saw it in your area. I was surprised to see all the reports and descriptions in TX over two days.
BPEarthwatch is like most people. Some things he has a good handle on, others he doesn't. I posted this video of his because of the information on siding spring and its close encounter with Mars. Btw, he references documents from reliable sources, if you consider a .gov site reliable.
I agree that he does delve into things pretty far fetched at times, but he is as entertaining as some of the A&E or History channel presentations, and Siding Spring will be making the news BIG time next October. Anyway, he means well and at least he doesn't hold anything back. lol Can't say I trust NASA to do that, do you?

Where is that cave in AZ? Anywhere around the “Smithsonian artifact cave” in the Grand Canyon?
ahh, another good read
Supposedly some top secret cave that our government and a faction of the military are hiding from us where these aliens from the planet Nubiru are hiding/kept until that 'planet' swings back around again and the nubirians take over again like they did the last time they were here (you remember - it was before the Flood..) There was a 'big battle' there in the 1950's, says the moonbat, between two factions of the US military, one siding with these aliens against the other...
If you're into conspiracy theories you'll find it on that moonbat's EweToob page (along with a lot of other conspiracy theory fodder...)
Must not be the same cave. I’ll have to do a google to see where these giants are living. Only ones in caves just south of here are the mules/criminals/drug cartels serving as lookouts for the 100 miles of Arizona that has been ceded back to Mexico and the criminals. From the border to 30 miles south of Phoenix, along Interstate 8.
It really was! I didn't have a clue about all of the interesting mysterious in your area. So much to learn and so little time... ;)
the story of my life, so much to learn, so little time :)
