In the early hours of Monday, an asteroid named Sar2667 collided with Earth's atmosphere, producing a bright flash that could be seen in Western Europe. According to Yahoo News, Krisztián Sárneczky, an astronomer in Hungary, first spotted the asteroid on February 12 during a regular search for near-Earth objects using a 2-foot telescope.
The recent asteroid impact incident was only the seventh instance of an asteroid being detected before colliding with Earth. The event occurred a decade after a meteor caused an explosion over Chelyabinsk, Russia, on February 15, 2013. The shock wave from the explosion caused injuries to nearly 1,200 people and damaged windows in approximately 3,600 apartment blocks.
