Largest Fireball Since Chelyabinsk Plunges Through Atmosphere Over Atlantic - by Chris Graham/ News/ Science/ Space/ The Telegraph/ telegraph.co.uk

"The rock, which released energy equivalent to the detonation of 13,000 tons of TNT as it burned up, fell off the coast of Brazil.

The biggest fireball since the meteor that rocked Chelyabinsk in Russia has fallen over the Atlantic, Nasa has revealed.

The event, which happened on February 6 at 13:55 GMT, seems to have gone unnoticed at the time as it burned up about 30km above the ocean, 620 miles off the Brazilian coast.

The energy released as it plunged through the Earth's atmosphere was equivalent to the detonation of 13,000 tons of TNT. In February 2013, the blast over Chelyabinsk in Russia released the equivalent of 500,000 tonnes of TNT.

Around 1,000 people were injured in that explosion - mostly as result of flying glass from smashed windows. The meteoroid, estimated to be about 10 tons, entered the atmosphere at a speed of at least 33,000mph..."

Did NASA see the meteor came to earth before the impact? I think NASA should have been seen every object that comes to earth.
