A meteor caused a massive explosion over Earth last year, but nobody noticed until now. It is the second-largest recorded impact in the past century, after the meteor that exploded over the Russian region of Chelyabinsk in 2013.

The giant fireball hit at 2350 GMT on 18 December over the Bering Sea, a part of the Pacific Ocean between Russia and Alaska.

The meteor was 10 metres in diameter, had a mass of 1400 tonnes and impacted with an energy of 173 kilotons of TNT, he wrote on Twitter. The impact energy was about 10 times that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

Lets' just say anywhere else on the planet and you could be dead. I believe there's roughly 5,000 satellites in orbit currently, maybe not all pointed in the right direction

Actually, at least one was.

Data from the DoD was also used to verify the meteor.

Yeah, nice image of it entering the atmosphere, the no-warning aspect though

I agree with you. We need an early warning system. The fact that we haven't taken this seriously tells me that no one on Earth, save for the astronomical community, will take it seriously until a city has disappeared, or an entire nation. It's about time humanity started devoting itself more fully to space exploration. Our survival depends on it.

Pretty small rock (and fast). Not easy to spot, and not many of those satellites are looking for them.

Well obviously, but think about it, there could be another one right now headed for you, just saying man

Unless of course we have a much more advanced space fleet already in play that the general public isn't aware of. . .

. . . and that the situation was taken care of and swept under the carpet without causing mass panic OR revealing certain activity outside our atmosphere.

And deliberately ignored by the MSM as to not raise additional questions about it.

Yup.

Pardon my doom porn moment but it would be rather fitting, dare I say perfect for humanity at this point in time for a number of factors including coming together as a species, realizing how insignificant war and our weapons are, knowing that an entire country or a few are simply gone and the repercussions it'd have globally as well as the mourning.

Look at how big of a deal WWII was for our species. That thing has been drilled through my skull, mostly because I used to be fascinated by war and strategy but now that I know the history and see how it changed us and advanced us, I can only wonder what a significantly large meteor impact would do. Even if it hit the United States, even if it vaporized my state. It's not like I'd ever know except for a few moments beforehand and thats a 50/50 if id be asleep.

I believe my tin foil hat will protect me from the worst of it. Which would be the news coverage.
