Colorado event: About Thursday night's Colorado fireball(s), the Rocky Mountain News has an article today, "Fireball not part of meteor shower." This has been picked up by the Associated Press and is appearing elsewhere. It gives the corrected event time of 7:41pm. See A/CC's report yesterday.
Telescope theft: Astronomy.com has an item from yesterday telling about the theft early Thursday of "one of the largest portable amateur telescopes made," a 30-inch StarMaster. It was taken from the owners' residence in Albuquerque, New Mexico, along with tools and accessories, in a trailer which the item describes.
Nevada find: The Reno Gazette-Journal posted a new version yesterday of a report which A/CC had noted about a Nevada meteorite find. It changes from saying that only four other meteorites had been found in Nevada to reporting that eight had been cataloged as of 1999 and there have been more since.
The Meteorite Mailing List (MML) had a "Nevada Meteorites" thread last December in which Robert Matson gave a list of 21 separately cataloged finds, some as groups, from 1908 to 2001. And Bernd Pauli reported, "Presently there are 'at least' 30," and gave a listing of individual meteorites.
