Earth Hit by Meteor Explosion 10 Times More Powerful Than Nuclear Bomb But No One Noticed Video – DAHBOO
On December 18, 2018, the third largest meteor explosion in the last century occurred and almost no one noticed despite it emitting the equivalent energy of 173 kilotons of TNT – 10 times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb.
The airburst explosion happened in the skies above the Bering Sea, off Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. The event was detected by 16 infrasound monitoring stations around the world, which were established to detect nuclear explosions within the Earth’s atmosphere. Its smoke trail was snapped by the Japanese Himawari-8 weather satellite, which just happened to be photographing that area of the sky at the time.
