Hi all -
I am inclined to think that just the friction from
a meteorite just hitting the ground would cause a
certain amount of heat - Elton, you know about the
heat generated by impact, even with two "room
temperature" objects -
Also, and different, I wonder if sometimes what
you may have are very small comets, which might
actually be set on fire by the entry friction, and
that fire might continue internally - Maybe that mud
from the little New Hampshire might have some remains
in it -
