NASA posts images of powerful fireball exploding over Earth

NASA releases images of meteorite that caused 173 kilotons explosion

An object of such size would have torn through Earth's atmosphere at a blistering speed of more than 115,000kph and exploded 25km above the surface of the sea located between Russian Federation and Alaska.

Unlike the Chelyabinsk meteor in 2013 that was seen across the world as it entered Earth's atmosphere, last year's meteor over the Bering Sea was believed to have evaded all cameras.

A Japanese weather satellite has provided visual evidence of the historic asteroid that exploded in the atmosphere over the Bering Sea in December that packed a punch of 10 atomic bombs used by the U.S.in Hiroshima, a report said.

The space agency has revealed how two instruments on their Terra satellite did capture video footage of the meteor as it exploded.

NASA recently reported about an explosion of a meteor over the Bering Sea that went unnoticed until this week.

Military satellites picked up the blast previous year, with Nasa being notified of the event by the US Air Force.

The scene - now turned into a GIF - shows the shadow of the meteor's trail through Earth's atmosphere, cast on the cloud tops and elongated by the low sun angle, to the north-west of the frame. The space agency watches for near-Earth objects in the range of 460 feet (140 m) across and larger, which would wipe out an entire US state. According to NASA, fireball events are actually quite common, and that they keep such events in a database.

In a post on UFO Sightings Daily, Waring claimed that NASA tried covering up the "3-5 mile UFO as an explosion".

That meteor was approximately 66 feet (20 m) in diameter, twice the size of the Bering Sea fireball.

The other instrument, the Moderate Resolution Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MODIS), captured the true-color still image of the remnants of the meteor's passage, and it can be seen as a shadow against the white clouds. The Chelyabinsk event injured more than 1,000 people.
