Incredible images of meteor crashing on Tasmania's south coast have been captured by researchers
Bright green debris being projected onto the Investigator research vessel, which is operated by the Australian National Science Agency, la Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO)
At the time, the ship charted the seabed of the Tasman Sea, carried out oceanographic studies and tested marine equipment.
“What we saw when looking at the live stream footage amazed us, the size and brightness of the meteor was amazing”, said John Hooper, CSIRO travel director, who was on board the ship at the time.
“The meteor crosses the sky directly in front of the ship, then breaks – it was amazing watching the footage and we were very lucky to have captured everything on the ship's live broadcast”
Video was captured by the ship's live camera; although there have been numerous eyewitness sightings, this is believed to be the only meteor sequence available., there are no reports of space debris by the International Meteorite Organization
“Cameras are everywhere, in our pockets and around our cities, but they must be pointed at the right place at the right time – RV Investigator was at this location and at this time”, Glen Nagle du CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science, he told me
More than 100 tons of natural space debris enter Earth's atmosphere every day Low-flying asteroid only missed Earth by a few hundred kilometers – Friday 13
The asteroid, who passed close to Earth at 400 kilometers (240 miles) – roughly the same distance as the International Space Station – was not noticed until the next day
Another asteroid worth 10 quintillion dollars, is 10000 times more than the world economy of 2019, has also been found It could shed light on the formation of the solar system due to the fact that it is almost entirely made up of metal and may be unique in its composition.
