Several dozens of residents of the American State of Alabama became witnesses of a huge bright sphere in the sky which has blown up at night on August 17.

It was very bright!" – one of eyewitnesses of this phenomenon in the sky has commented. "Results show that the fiery sphere was at least 40 times brighter, than a full moon. The sphere has turned out as a result of explosion of a small asteroid with a diameter of 2 meters (6 feet)", – it is said in the statement. It is possible that some small pieces have fallen to the ground, but it isn't clear whether everything small pieces could reach a surface, have added to NASA.
