As we reported, an asteroid entered Earth's atmosphere at dawn on Sunday, and eventually burned up. Its first observer was the Hungarian astronomer Krysztian Szarnecki, and based on his information, German and Czech astronomers also woke up to catch a glimpse of this amazing celestial event.
The size of the asteroid, which fell into the atmosphere, was about one meter, and it struck near Nynhausen in the Haviland region, approximately 50 kilometers from Berlin. Search teams are searching for the wreckage. The celestial body has been named 2024 BX1, said Laszlo Kisz, Cecchini and Prima Prize-winning astronomer. For Infosart.
Astronomer Laszlo Kiss revealed that the estimated number of house-sized celestial rocks, between 10 and 30 meters tall, is close to a million, and that Krystian Szarnieczky detected the “smaller celestial rock” from the surface of Peškis in Matra on Saturday night already. In the past sixteen years, a total of eight such cases with similar asteroids in Earth's atmosphere have occurred, five of them involving Americans and three involving Hungarian involvement.
Even the US President is learning about asteroids
According to the astronomer's interpretation, any point object moving quickly against the background of a starry sky is called an asteroid.
Its coordinates and path elements can be calculated accurately. After writing it down, the data must be uploaded to the database of the NEO confirmation page on an American website. The data there is constantly monitored by organizations such as NASA or the European Space Agency (ESA).
When astronomers discover a celestial body that is expected to collide soon, “alarm bells ring immediately.”
Laszlo said kiss.
He added: He learned at an international workshop that the White House also has a contact point where this type of alert is sent, which means that the immediate environment of the US President can also obtain timely information about the impact of an asteroid or celestial body on the Earth’s atmosphere. . The German military was informed of last weekend's events, and they informed the European Space Agency and NATO allies.
