Star Banks Adventure – @ICTmagic

Two meteors in two days lit up the sky in China and Botswana

  • It was detected by researchers at the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, 8 hours before entering Earths atmosphere.
  • After a streak showed up on a series of time-lapse telescope images, astronomers determined that the rock dubbed 2018 LA was relatively small and on a collision course with Earth.
  • This is only the third time astronomers have detected an object set to hit Earths atmosphere before it arrived.
  • The small size that made 2018 LA harmless also made it difficult to detect, especially since the telescopes that would find it only operate at night and do not observe the entire sky.
  • There are probably about a billion near-Earth objects of this size, but weve only spotted about 40 that are less than 3 metres across, says Peter Vere at the Minor Planet Center in Massachusetts.
