An unknown object now believed to be a meteorite has impacted in a small town in Latvia, mystery endures however as at least one geologist is claiming that the 15-metre wide crater is actually a hoax.

"A meteorite hurtling to Earth is thought to have left a 15-metre wide crater in Latvia. The fiery object set a field ablaze when it crashed on the outskirts of Mazsalaca, a small town in the north of the country, on Sunday afternoon."

Making a fake crater would be easy. Just a desiel fuel/fertilizer bomb put about 5 meters down a large post hole could make such a crater. I did it many times in Georgia as a Combat Engineer for the US Army.

The question is rather... why bother? Attention? This was figured out in just a couple hours. Probably the authorities over there will lock up whoever did it.

They should have known it was fake as soon as they said something was burning in the bottom of it. Meteors quit burning at about 50,000 feet unless they are huge. Then it doesn't matter because everyone dies.

they may or may not quit burning at 50,000 feet but they stay hot enough to be seen on the ground when they hit. i say one my self hit. about the size of a marble and it cooled quickly after hitting but it was still glowing when it hit.
