Belize & Guatemala terrified as Meteorite makes landfall in Melchor
Residents of Melchor and Benque Viejo heard a resounding boom in Belize and felt the earth shake on at 10:30 on Monday night.
Some said it was a missile from the Zetas, other said the Guatemalan Military had shot down a plane – well it was neither: Guatemalan authorities have concluded that it was a meteorite.
According to reports coming out of Guatemala, several residents of the border town reported that they saw a great cosmic light flying across the night sky which was followed by a loud thunder.
Melchor’s Municipal Firefighters Association corroborated the eyewitness accounts via twitter saying that the landing of the meteorite was followed by tremors.
