    Salutations!

    I’ve started listening to your older episodes again, your podcast is very helpful by the way, thanks guys.

    I recently got directed to an online video of what appears to be a meteorite. How big would this particular space rock be, assuming it is one, and it also seemed to have moved very slowly or could that just be the camera’s frame rate?
    [..link bellow..]

    And Pamela mentions in this episode that rocks with a diameter of 50m will even reach the Earth’s surface. Won’t these size rocks be considered NEO’s, or was that a mistake?

    Cheers again for all the effort!
