Irish Astronomers: Help us explain the “sky explosion”

An Irish astronomy group is calling for help in tracing the origin of a huge explosion in the skies over the country on Thursday evening.

Astronomy Ireland said it was currently investigating the explosion, which occurred at 2100 BST.

A spokesman said the most likely explanation was a space rock or satellite crashing into the atmosphere.

    Gosh, that was easy. When you look through your ‘Jesus glasses,’ the same explanation works for everything.

  2. Now, now! Don’t get down on us because we’re puzzled by these ‘sky explosions’ – it’s just that we’re more used to explosions on the ground..
