    Sneaky Meteor Evades Earthling Detection, Explodes with Force of 10 Atomic Bombs

    Sneaky Meteor Evades Earthling Detection, Explodes with Force of 10 Atomic Bombs

    On Dec. 18, 2018, a school bus-size meteor exploded over Earth with an impact energy of roughly 10 atomic bombs. According to NASA, the blast was the second-largest meteor impact since the organization began tracking them 30 years ago, bested only by the infamous fireball that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in Feb. 2013.

    Despite this, hardly anyone noticed it was happening ó and nobody saw it coming.

    As to why one of the largest meteor impacts in recent history may have totally passed you by, that's likely because the space rock in question shattered over the Bering Sea, a cold stretch of the Pacific Ocean between Russia and Alaska, miles from inhabited land.
    I can't believe I didn't hear about this before now.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
