Meteor Shower: NASA Confirms Impact
NASA scientists studied the data and concluded that the meteor shower was likely caused by a small comet that was passing near Earth. The comet likely broke apart, causing the flurry of meteors that light up the night sky. The largest of the meteors – the one weighing 1,000 pounds – would have created a brilliant flash and loud boom as it ripped through the atmosphere and slammed into the Earth.
The impact crater left behind by the meteorite was estimated to be a few feet wide. While no injuries or damages were reported, it’s a good reminder that celestial events like these can cause some serious destruction.
