Thanks. Russia has been hit before by a bigger one in Tunguska. Meteors are not easy to track at all. When they are far, they are too small and dim. When they are close it can be too late. And they have to be monitored over a period of time to know how they are moving. Contrary to what most people think, space rocks that don't necessarily share your frame of reference can be moving at incredible speeds. You see it and it hits you. The killer ones are rare, but you never know.
A bullet from a 14-year-old is just as effective as one from a 40-year-old. Often more effective.

Most of them land in the oceans. So nobody knows. I believe one of them fell on a cow. Splitting it into two.

In the 1990s there was meteorite that showed up in kenya airspace. the sonic boom and flares were seen around Kiambu and nairobi specifically ngong forest area. we were getting ready for bed and as we moved from the Kitchen to the big masion we heard a lound noise and ran outside to see '' the flares were very bright and sonic sound defeaning it lasted a second or two". In nairobi revellers coming from bars that saturday exprienced the same thing parliament convened and when internal security minister was asked to make a statement on what that unidentified thing was he said it was a heavenly body that was not detected by kenyan radars nor neighbouring countries radars.. I think the meteorite may have crashed in the forest or indian ocean..

They are small. They are fast. Much much faster than an ICBM for instance.

yeah you could be correct ..news media reported this thing was coming in doing speeds of up to 33,000 miles per hour....jeeeez!!!
even the fastest balistic missile on earth does not do such speeds.
but i thought the faster it is the more turbulance in the atmosphere and more visibilty plus electronic detections?
