Sahab Saqib, which reached the earth after a journey of 20 million years
Named the 2018 LA, it split into several pieces before falling to the ground on June 2, 2018, and part of it was found in the forests of Kalahari in Botswana. The meteorite is thought to have been five feet in size, like a large rock.
Weighing 12566 pounds, the rock traveled at 37,000 miles per hour until the last moment. The meteorite erupted in an atmosphere 27 km from the earth and was 20,000 times brighter than the full moon.
This has been researched by Christian Wolf, of the Australian National University Research School of Astrology and Astrophysics. He published a detailed account of it last week.
On June 2, 2018, he was spotted and predicted to collide with the ground, and he was immediately knocked off the ground in Botswana. It was monitored by the Catalina Sky Survey Observatory at the University of Arizona. The center generates data on small boulders and large boulders that hit the ground.
This is the second time in human history that a meteorite has been spotted before a ground collision. The first meteorite was the 2008 TC III, which was discovered ten years ago.
