Every meteorite fall on earth mapped

Great map showing where all the known meteorite landings on earth have been up to 2300 BC

 The data is from the US Meteorological Society and doesn't show those places where meteorites may have fallen but not been discovered

Glad, you like it


This map shows all the known asteroids within one-third of Earth’s distance from the sun on February 27, 2013.

How many asteroids in near-Earth space in mid-February, 2013?

February 15, 2013 was a red-letter day for asteroids in near-Earth space. A small asteroid exploded in the atmosphere above Russia, followed by the much-publicized close flyby of asteroid 2012 DA14. Here’s a way to picture Earth and the asteroids near it in space, from Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland. The image below is near-Earth space in mid-February, 2013. It shows all the objects within 0.3 AU of Earth on that day – that’s 45 million kilometers – or about 30 million miles – or about one-third of the distance between us and the sun. The red oval around Earth represents 3.84 million kilometers, or 10 lunar distances.
