Two meteors just missed Earth early this Wednesday


Recommended Posts

I am just wondering why this post is in the ethics section.

 

Indeed. Moved to science news.

 

Per the topic, meteorites that size might not even have reached the ground. Meteorites in the 5-10m range hit the Earth about once a year, and they just explode in the upper atmosphere. From the ground it might look like a distant lightning flash. They need to be a lot bigger to really cause damage.
