Huge Fireball Explodes Over Atlantic Ocean, Largest Since Event Over Russia

Here you go!

All these things. Makes it look like planet x is indeed coming closer! im undecided but i will say that theory is gaining A LOT of new possible evidence for this.

I saw this story a few days ago. Here is the story for those who dont watch videos.

Largest Fireball Since Chelyabinsk Falls Over the Atlantic

By Phil Plait

On Feb. 6, at about 14:00 UTC, a tiny chunk of interplanetary material plunged into Earth’s atmosphere and burned up—likely exploding—about 30 kilometers above the Atlantic Ocean. The energy released was equivalent to the detonation of 13,000 tons of TNT, making this the largest such event since the (much larger) Chelyabinsk blast in February 2013.

OK, so first, off: Don’t panic! As impacts go, this was pretty small.* After all, you didn’t even hear about until weeks after it occurred. Events this size aren’t too big a concern. Had it happened over a populated area it, would’ve rattled some windows and probably terrified a lot of people, but I don’t think it would’ve done any real damage.

For comparison, the Chelyabinsk explosion, which was strong enough to shatter windows and injure more than 1,000 people (due to flying glass), had an equivalent yield of 500,000 tons of TNT, 40 times the energy of this more recent impact.

The event was reported on the NASA/JPL Near-Earth Object Fireball page, which lists some of the brightest such things.

<snip>

Impacts like this happen several times per year on average, with most going unseen. The Earth is mostly water, and even where there’s land, it’s sparsely populated overall. Chelyabinsk was both relatively energetic and happened over a populated area (the city of Chelyabinsk has more than 1 million people). Still, I would assume the military sees most if not all events this size but chooses not to report them for their own reasons. I understand the desire for them to keep their technology and capabilities secret. It would be nice scientifically to have this data available, but then again they don’t have to release any of it at all, so even having this much is better than nothing. And it’s useful.

And as usual, all of this underscores the need to be on the lookout. A rock this small is almost impossible to see more than a few hours before impact, but the flip side is that it’s also really unlikely to do any damage. But once they get into the 20–50 meter range that changes; explosions from impacts like that rival nuclear bombs. Happily, they’re very rare—here we’re talking fewer than once per century, statistically speaking—but it would be nice if we knew they were coming. It’s hard to say just what we would do if we saw one, but right now we don’t even have that option.

I am still not on the planet X bandwagon. Nothing I have seen points to there being one on its way in.

I do, however, like to watch the following video as a reminder of the shooting gallery we live in:
(the red ones all cross the Earth's path meaning a potential for an eventual collision)
