About Me

My photo
My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

Suspected Meteorite Across The United Kingdom

Goodness!!! I've just been catching up on some news.

A suspected meteorite had a number of folk across the United Kingdom worrying about what it was they were actually seeing. Many likened the sky to fireworks. Apparently reports started coming in at about 23.00hrs last night. Sightings were mostly in Scotland.

I've just been reading a piece by Jonathan Amos, the Science correspondent. He writes on th
e BBC website and says Classic meteors - fragments of rock - tend to flash across the sky in an instant. These usually go unnoticed however an incoming satelite can delay the blaze of light allowing folk the chance to see it.

He also goes on to mention that there is a lot of redundant hardware/space debris up there and everything from old rocket stages to flecks of paint etc still loop around the Earth after being launched some years ago. These have floated off to space and gravity demands it all comes back to Earth eventually. Apparently the bigger the returnig object, the bigger the light.

Absolutely facinating. :)
