  • Despite more than 300 years since its first scientific description, the phenomenon of electrophonic sounds from meteors are still eluding complete physical explanation. According to the accepted knowledge, the sound itself is created by strong electric fields on the ground induced by the meteor. Nonetheless, there is no convincing theory that can fully explain how a meteor can generate such a strong electric field. Extreme rareness of the phenomenon has prevented a substantial experimental work… CONTINUE READING
