 Space Rock Slams into Nicaragua, Leaves Crater
Posted on September 9, 2014

A thunderous explosion shook the crowded Nicaraguan capital of Managua late Saturday, leaving a large crater thought to be caused by a small meteorite. In a vast city of 1.2 million people, it’s amazing it did not cause any known injuries. It impacted near the international airport and left a crater measuring 39 feet (12 meters) across.  :o

Authorities in Nicaragua believe it was a piece of the small asteroid “2014 RC,” which passed very close to Earth this past Sunday. It was estimated to be about 65 feet (20 meters) across, or roughly the size of a house. “We are convinced that this was a meteorite. We have seen the crater from the impact,” said Wilfredo Strauss of the Seismic Institute.

Watch the meteor stream across the night sky:

The meteorite landed in a wooded area near the airport around midnight and the impact was so violent that it registered on tools the Seismic Institute uses to measure earthquakes. “You can see two waves: first, a small seismic wave when the meteorite hit earth, and then another stronger one, which is the impact of the sound,” Strauss said.

People living near the crater told local media they heard an explosion and saw liquid, sand and dust being cast into the atmosphere, leaving a burning smell.
