United States space agency ( NASA ), on Friday (3/22/2019), released a number of satellite photos that showed a large force meteor passing and exploding over the Bering Sea, between the Americas and Asia.
The meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere on 18 December 2018 then. The explosion released 173 kilotons of energy, 10 times more powerful than the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima City in Japan during World War II.
Unfortunately, none of the people on Earth are aware of this grand event. This also shows that asteroid detection technology on Earth can still be missed. Imagine if the meteor explosion occurred over populated areas?
The photos themselves are shots of NASA’s two instruments mounted on the Terra satellite.
In photographs published by NASA, visible traces of explosion in the atmosphere and the shadow of a meteor trajectory above the clouds. When a meteor explodes, the superheated air around it turns the clouds slightly orange.
Meteors are Smallest MRI space rocks that when rubbing against Earth’s atmosphere will glow and are therefore often called tail stars. Normally a meteor will be destroyed when it passes through the Earth’s atmosphere, but if anyone succeeds in hitting the Earth’s surface it will be called a meteroid.
The meteor explosion above the Bering Sea itself was the biggest explosion in Earth’s atmosphere after the 2013 Chelyabinsk event. At that time, the explosion produced by the meteor above the Russian city was 440 kilotons.
As a result 1,500 people were injured and glass in most buildings in the city broke apart. The explosion was estimated to occur in the sky, with a height of about 27 kilometers from the surface of the Earth, and at a distance of about 40 kilometers from downtown Chelyabinsk.
