There are 24 more-or-less one hour time zones, four of which are in the lower 48. Plus a few 1/2 hour ones. So a lot of New Years. 

Dad, as an oil executive, got to ride the Concorde around the world.

Celebrate New Years in NYC,  get on the plane,  celebrate it in mid-air, land, celebrate it,  celebrate it in mid-air, land, and again, and again.

The oil-executives were all probably really good at getting drunk, but this had to be a test for the top-floor upper-exec prospects.

"Dude.  You set Krasnodar on fire.  That's not what we expect from a respected member of our team."

Meteor exploded over Pittsburgh loud enough to be recorded as an earthquake. 

Welcome to 2022. 

Confirmed. tom.


PITTSBURGH, PA — The loud boom heard on New Year's Day in the Pittsburgh area indeed was a meteor entering the atmosphere, according to the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook page.

"A nearby infrasound station registered the blast wave from the meteor as it broke apart; the data enabled an estimate of the energy at 30 tons of TNT," a post on the page stated.

"If we make a reasonable assumption as to the meteor's speed (45,000 miles per hour), we can ballpark the object's size at about a yard in diameter, with a mass close to half a ton. Had it not been cloudy, the fireball would have been easily visible in the daylight sky - crude estimate indicates about 100 times the brightness of the full moon."


Many people notified authorities, who could offer no explanation, about the large bang.
