Spaceweather.com: Asteroid Explodes Near Earth

Space Weather News for June 4, 2018

A SMALL ASTEROID HITS EARTH: A small asteroid hit Earth on Saturday, June 2nd, exploding in the atmosphere over Botswana before it could reach the ground.

The Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona had discovered the space rock only hours earlier as it hurtled toward our planet from inside the orbit of the Moon.

Sensors used to monitor rogue nuclear explosions detected the asteroid and estimated its yield near ~500 tons of TNT. Visit today’s edition of Spaceweather.com for the full story.
