You might have seen some videos or reports about the meteor that fell in Russia. Several were injured from broken glasses. Watching the video below is almost like watching a sci-fi movie.
Then Friday last week (Feb. 15), an asteroid passed by Earth. It was about half the size of a football field. Luckily for us, earthlings, it didn’t hit our planet else it would have created a massive damage far more than the recent meteor hit in Russia.
We were not able to actually see the flyby asteroid because it was day time when it came (too bright for sky watching) and it didn’t pass our side of the world. However, I think we were fortunate enough to watch it together (me and the husband) online while most of humanity is busy with their miniscule lives and minute problems. Ha. Just kidding. I was just happy we were able to share that time together watching a significant astronomical event.
