Falling from the heavens?



These two images were taken at approximately 7:15 am on December 26, 2005.

Seems like a very distant object falling from the sky. Its exact location would be east of the airport my vantage point.

Once again, this is very distant, and the possibility of its falling into the Arabian Sea (far beyond Korangi) cannot be ruled out. It is even possible that it was a large object, just crossing our atmosphere…

Edit 1:
This is not a plane, thats definite, cos only falling from the atmosphere would give anything a burning red glow, anything else burning, would also have smoke, which is not visible here….

Any of u seen the news, papers, NASA, anything?

    since we didnt hear any news it most probably fell into the sea. And by the time it reached there it was so small it didnt make any impact. So no tsunami. meteorites like these fall on earth every now and then. Luckily only few drop on human population. You bro is lucky to witness the event. Getting up early sometimes does pay off ;)

    Damn, what was he doing, sitting on the roof waiting for some shooting star?? what are the odds of catching this one on the camera??? I guess he must be a dedicated photographer :)

    I am impressed – imagine the odds of a person up in the morning holding a camera to catch a glimpse of this meteorite – and then snap not one but two pictures.

    If he had the time to snap two pictures – I presume its falling debris from a satellite or something, as a meterorite usually last a few seconds

    Good Find

    excuse my scepticism but i do have serious doubts about that pic. I was at the beach all night and observed nothin on the said date. besides, as mentioned the time at which this picture was taken was 7:15 am, and if you look at the pic closely, it doesn’t give a hint that the pic was taken at day time. At 7 am, the sky is quite bright and the pic doesn’t show that. R u sure this is a real pic and not some drama created with the help of photoshop?

    :) Inspirex please give us the true picture of this picture?

    Must be Al-qaeda’s work

    Ive confirmed this from my bro who took the pic.
    It was taken b/w 7 and 7.15 am in the morning, and the anomaly was visible for a significant period of time. He actually even changed the camera batteries before he took the pic. He realized the batteries were dead when he took the camera to the balcony and it shut down immediately after powering up.

    Flash was not used when the picture was taken and since sinner was at the beach, he would confirm that it was pretty clear on 26/12/05.

    The only Photoshop involvement in this pic was to crop it and the use of the “save for web” option (im using 7.0).

    The actual pictures are approximately 100kb each and 2048 x 1536 pixels large at 72 dpi horizontal and vertical depth. I can email these for your close examination if you wish.

    The second pic was taken after zooming in a bit, hence the difference in the size of the object.

    Thats about all there is to it.

    The image looks like contrails from an jetliner flying at cruise altitude. Such contrails are pretty common this time of the year since the air temperature at high altitudes tend to instantly condense the jet exhaust. You can clearly see two streaks consistent to a dual engine jetliner (such as the Boeing 777, 767, 757 or the Airbus A300, 330s etc.)

    The fiery color can be attributed to the position of the sun in relation to the altitude and the location of the plane.

    I m inclined towards Razi’s idea. Bcos of the two tails of the object, although the object itself is not clear but two tails, like from both the engines.

    But Inspirex says it was falling, not flying…now thats weird.
