Huge Fireball Crashes Into Atlantic

February 25, 2016

NASA has revealed that a huge fireball from space crashed into the Atlantic Ocean earlier this month.

The meteor exploded in the air off the coast of Brazil – releasing the same equivalent of energy as 13,000 tonnes of TNT! Crazily enough, the incident went mostly unnoticed.

NASA worker Ron Baalke says that impacts like this go unnoticed several times a year.

This fireball measured about 7 metres across and is the largest incident since February 2013 when another fireball exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, and left more than 1600 people injured.
