Large Meteor Explodes Over Atlantic

A large meteor exploded over the Atlantic on the 6th of Febuary, with the energy equivalent to 13,000 tons of TNT. Nobody observed or filmed this one, it was reported by NASA and reported here by the BBC. It been exactly 3 years since the Chelyabinsk meteor, obviously just an amazing coincidence and absolutely nothing to worry about! In fact there was quite a few meteor explosions in 2013.

There was this one :-

Massive fireball in the sky over Spain

There was also this one :-

And don't forget this one :-

And another :-

Obviously just a coincidence, but if not then are we likely to get loads more later on in the year as its looks possible that there are some very big rocks out there that are on a three year orbit around the Earth. It funny because my son drew a picture a couple of weeks ago of four big objects heading towards the Earth. I said to him what are those meteors? He said yes! Maybe just another coincidence? Although don't children have a sixth sense when it comes to things like that. I know they say animals have the ability to predict earthquakes. Maybe those Sperm whales that stranded just recently know something we don't, after all it was the worst stranding since records began, very strange!

Mind your head!
