Wednesday, July 24, 2019, 21:30 – If you live near Bancroft, Ont., You might want to check around for space rocks!
In the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 24, the sky above Ontario's south was illuminated, as a bright full moon, when a brilliant fireball passed over his head.
According to NASA records, the meteor, which caused this fiery ball – about 30 cm wide rock from space – sank into the atmosphere with more than half a kilo of TNT. Then it passed west of Toronto, where Peterborough passed, and north west of Bancroft, Ontario.
Watch down to see this bright fiery ball flashing through the sky. : Do you think you've found a meteorite? Here's how to know for sure

panting – enough to slow down that the air has not clutched to the point where it's lit – pieces of the meteor may have survived to hit the ground!
This fiery globe has probably dropped a small number of meteorites in the Bancroft area, just off the small town of Cardiff. We suspect that the meteorites have reached the ground because the fireball ended very low in the atmosphere west of Bancroft and slowed down significantly. This is a good indicator that the material survives, "says Brown.  Map of the end of Bancroft's fire path showing NASA
So, if you are reading this article and you live in the area north of Peterborough, Ontario, west of Bancroft, it might be worth the time to go to meteorites

If someone finds something they think might be a meteorite , the best way to find out, for sure, is to get the Ontario Royal Museum at one of their clinics to identify rock, precious stones, minerals, fossils and meteorites
WHAT WILL BE THE PLANET It's a small part of it is a little bigger pieces, like grains of sand, pebbles and gravel – the bigger the size, the less are . From time to time, maybe several times a month, something bigger is going on our way, as the Earth flies around the Sun. These larger meteorites vary in size, from golf ball size to giant asteroids that are a few meters away. The Chelyabinian asteroid, from February 2013, was probably about 20 meters!

When one of these meteors hit the top of the atmosphere, it moves at speeds from tens to hundreds of thousands of kilometers per hour and very quickly compresses the air in it. , so much that the air heats up to glow, white-hot! This luminous is the "meteor" we see sinking into the air, high above the ground. the air presses back on the meteor, causing it to slow down, and sometimes to exert enough power on the meteor to break it, where it can no longer heat the air to the point of light, the meteor extinguishes
Sometimes, in bigger objects, it ends very abruptly in an explosion when the meteor is broken.This is known as a car
The larger the meteor, the further you can plunge into our atmosphere and survive. Thus the object, or the broken parts of it, can reach the earth as meteorites.

The meteorites, when they fall on Earth, tend not to be hot. They're pretty cold. When the meteorites fly around in space, they tend to cool down to their core, to extremely low temperatures. So, they can not be identified by burning or smoking.
Here's what to look for, to find a meteorite: [Magnetic:Becauseofthehighmetalcontentmostmeteoriteswillsticktoamagnet(thoseoftheMoonandMarshavelessironandthuswillnotattractamagnet)
Fusion crust: the outer surface of the meteorite will have a very thin, shiny dark bark, everywhere from gray to brown to black, while the interior may be much lighter
Regmaglypts: Some larger meteorites, especially iron , will have impressions on the surface that resemble a fingerprint pressed in
Form: meteorites have smooth, rounded surfaces but are rarely spherical or symmetrical (and some fusion fusions may have a rough sense of it)
Fragments: Larger meteorites often break down as they are are cut into the atmosphere and thus are found as fragments of irregular shape, only with fusion. Covering some of their surface  Interior: iron meteorites will be shiny like steel inside, stone iron will be the same, with small precious stones embedded in the metal, while the stones will be mostly the same or look like miniature spheres, complete together
Meteor errors: There are many earth rocks, natural and artificial, that can share the characteristics of the meteorites. Hematite, magnetite and mining or industrial slag are usually considered meteorites. If there is no magnetic or no fusion, or there are small holes in the surface, or it appears to be composed of layers of material, it is very likely the wrong meteor.
