Mars Moon Attacks Peru

Meteorite crash leaves 66ft-wide crater - and dozens with mystery illness, Daily Mail

"A meteorite that crashed in Peru has made dozens of villagers ill. Witnesses told of a fiery ball falling from the sky and smashing into the desolate Andean plain near the Bolivian border at the weekend. Officials have said it was a meteorite. Jorge Lopez, director of the health department in the state of Puno, said 200 people have suffered headaches, nausea and respiratory problems caused by "toxic" fumes from the resulting crater, which is about 66 feet wide and 16 feet deep."

Editor's note: Gee, I wonder if this newspaper actually sent their own reporter to the scene ... I especially love the graphic which shows Mars' moon Phobos entering Earth's atmosphere. Invading Martians, I suppose.
