INDIAN EXPRESS - Meteoroid impact triggers bright flash on lunar surface, May 18, 2013

Moon meteor impact
"An automated telescope monitoring the moon has captured images of an 88-pound (40 kg) rock slamming into the lunar surface, creating a bright flash of light, NASA scientists said on Friday. The explosion on March 17 was the biggest seen since NASA began watching the moon for meteoroid impacts about eight years ago. So far, more than 300 strikes have been recorded. "It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we've ever seen before," Bill Cooke, with NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, said in a statement. A NASA satellite orbiting the moon is now on a hunt for the newly formed crater, which scientists estimate could be as wide as 66 feet (20 meters)."

MAIL Online - Asteroid 9 times larger than the QE2 set to whizz past Earth, May 18, 2013


 "An asteroid nine times larger than the QE2 is due to sail past the Earth later this month. Luckily, the giant space rock will get no closer than 3.6 million miles, or 15 times the distance between the Earth and the moon. Scientists have named the asteroid 1998 QE2 but the name has nothing to do with the transatlantic Cunard liner - it follows a code used for newly-discovered asteroids by the US Minor Planet Centre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  "

INDIA TIMES - 60 Injured as US Commuter Trains Collide | Americas, May 18, 2013

60 Injured as US Commuter Trains Collide
 "A spokesman for the Metro North commuter train line said the incident involved a train headed into the city and one traveling in the opposite direction toward New Haven, Connecticut.   "Sixty people have been taken to the hospital," Connecticut governor Dan Malloy said on Twitter. "There are five people in critical condition, one in very critical condition."   The accident happened at the Connecticut city of Bridgeport at around 6:00pm (2200 GMT). Alex Cohen, a passenger on the train headed to New York, said it pulled to a sudden halt and then suddenly jerked forward.   "There was smoke. People were screaming, people were really nervous. We were pretty shaken up. They had to smash a window to get us out," Cohen told NBC Connecticut.   Malloy told reporters the collision was a very serious incident but there was "no reason to believe that this was anything but accidental." "We're most concerned about the injured and ultimately reopening the system," he added."

SKY - Moon Rocked By Biggest Meteorite Explosion, May 18, 2013

A full moon seen from Panama City
 "A meteorite has slammed into the surface of the Moon, creating a flash of light so bright it could be seen without a telescope. Scientists say the space rock was travelling at around 56,000mph when it crashed into the Moon's Mare Imbrium region. It is believed to have measured no more than 40cm across but experts say the force of the impact - equivalent to setting off four tons (4,500kg) of TNT - would have made a crater up to 20m wide."
