    Meteor news - 3 months later?

    Per BBC article of MARCH 18, 2019

    - https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-47607696

    - A space rock several meters in size entered the atmosphere at a speed of 32km/s

    - and exploded 25.6km above the Earth's surface. Impact energy of 173 kilotons.

    - on DECEMBER 18, 2018?

    For some reason I believed our government agencies were continually scanning the heavens & would alert us to events like this... sooner. Now that I think about it, might be just as well if they don't. I probably don't want to know if "a big one" is ever really headed our way.
