NASA Releases Images Of A Giant Meteor Explosion Over Earth

NASA has released images of a huge meteor that exploded over Earth last year with more than 10 times the energy of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima during World War II.

The “fireball,” NASA’s term for an exceptionally bright meteor visible over a wide area, exploded about 16 miles above the Bering Sea on Dec.

The long, dark streak at the center of the image is actually a shadow of the meteor’s trail cast on top of clouds.
