Happy Asteroid Day (30 June)!

Today (30 June) is Asteroid Day.
"Asteroid Day is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids, the impact hazard they may pose, and what we can do to protect our planet, families, communities, and future generations from future asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day is held each year on the anniversary of the largest impact in recent history, the 1908 Tunguska event in Siberia."

NASA reports 1.2kt bolide over Mauritania

NASA fireballs page has been updated with a bolide meteor with 1.2kt of Calculated Total Impact Energy. The bolide's position was given as 15.8N,11.9W.
The bolide was detected on Monday 27 June at 10:02UTC, possessed a velocity(x) of -29.1 km/s or 18.2 miles/sec (65,475 mph) and was reported at an altitude of 33km (20 miles).

Background Situation

New asteroid discoveries are currently in somewhat of a lull, with only 10 new discoveries in the <0.5AU range within the last 2 weeks (Period "M"). The numbers of new <0.5AU discoveries have been in decline since period "G" (Apr1-Apr15), with a similar trend for <5LD asteroids since period "E" (Mar1-Mar15).

2016 MA was the only <5LD asteroid discovered during period "M" and made its close-approach on June 19 at a distance of 2.6LD. New period "N" begins tomorrow (July 1).
So far, in 2016, there have been 29,849 new <0.5AU discoveries and 211 <10LD discoveries.

A small asteroid has been discovered in an orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth, and it will remain so for centuries to come. As it orbits the sun, this new asteroid, designated 2016 HO3, appears to circle around Earth as well. It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or "quasi-satellite."... more

Scientists have identified a completely new type of meteorite. - Österplana 65

An 8cm space rock called Österplana 65 was found in a limestone quarry in Thorsberg, Sweden that produces floor tiles. It is said to be chemically distinct from any of the 50,000 other such objects held in collections. Dating suggests the meteorite's parent body was involved in a huge collision in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter some 470 million years ago.

Sharp increase in number of <0.5AU asteroids for current period

Sharp increase in number of <0.5AU asteroids for current period

 In the previous 24-hours, the number of <0.5AU asteroid discoveries for current period (L) has sharply increased from 284 to 1199 (increase of 915).  1 AU = ~150 million kilometers

As of yesterday, the most recent announced discovery was 2016 LJ11 (decimal equivalent = 2016, L, 284).  As of 07:55 British Summer Time, this has been superseded by 2016 LY47 (decimal equivalent = 2016, L, 1199).

Within those 915 new discoveries, none have a close-approach of <10LD - which is quite unusual.

Normally (whatever 'normal' is), 0.7% of the running total <0.5AU discoveries are in the <10LD range, with 0.1% of the running total making a close-approach <1LD.
1 LD = Lunar Distance = ~384,000 kilometers

Remarks:
1) New period "M" starts as of 00:00 Thu-16-June-2016.
2) In comparison, 2015 (periods A-L inclusive) saw a total of 47,551 new <0.5AU discoveries.  For the same period of 2016, so far, there have been a total of 29,742 new <0.5AU discoveries - so we're currently 'down' by 37.5% on last year's totals (so far).

“If tomorrow a meteorite falls in France, we will be able to know where it comes from and roughly where it has landed,” says Jérémie Vaubaillon, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory and one of organizers of the system. Dubbed the Fireball Recovery and InterPlanetary Observation Network, or FRIPON, it was officially inaugurated on 28 May.

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting- Remember IF you are looking for a report and no one reports then everyone lacks information; thank you.
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently  5, 9 15 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of June 2016. I expect that 10-15 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end. Expect some spectacular bolides, fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  the less than 10LD NEOs and 6 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids, diameters ranging from 400m- 2.5.km, that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
