On Feb. 6, a large meteor exploded over the South Atlantic Ocean, and no one noticed. The meteor released 13 kilotons of energy while it burned in the atmosphere, close to the amount released by the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. It was the most powerful meteor to have entered the atmosphere since 3 years ago, when the 440 kiloton meteor exploded over the skies of Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Meteors of that size are rare. In all of 2015, for example, there was only one meteor that had released more than 1 kiloton of energy. NASA keeps a running list of all the meteors that blaze up in the atmosphere and become “fireballs.” Every day, more than 100 tons of meteoroids enter the earth’s atmosphere, most of it burning up before it becomes visible to the naked eye.

If a meteor exploded and no one noticed, did it really happen?

I imagine it happened too high up in the atmosphere for any measurable effect to happen on the surface, no?

Still waiting for a "Deep Impact" style event. Goodness knows the Earth is overpopulated.

I thought this thread was going to have to do with Trump being the GOP front runner Laughing

That's pretty cool. I'm surprised no one saw it.
