The latest sensory data from NASA and the US government show that the fireball is burning with the atmosphere of the region, releasing about 1400 tons of TNT energy.

In fact, such meteor attacks are very frequent, but it is difficult for humans to see the scenes of the ocean or uninhabited areas. For example, on September 25th, a more powerful fireball explosion was recorded on the coast of Madagascar.

The International Meteor has reported that hundreds of people have witnessed this rare scene from Fort Myers to the Florida Keys to the coast of Cuba.

After reporting the wonders of space, people have discovered some meteorite fragments in western Brazil. However, compared with the one that took place in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia in 2013, the scale is much smaller.

The meteor impact of Chelyabinsk is equivalent to 440,000 tons of TNT. The resulting sonic booms and shockwaves destroyed thousands of windows and caused many injuries.
