NASA has reported an asteroid referred to as “First 2014 Asteroid” – 2014 AA – by the agency. The small asteroid – 7 to 10 feet (2 to 3 meters) in size – was seen with the help of the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Ariz.
According to the agency, the asteroid most probably entered Earth’s atmosphere sometime between 11 a.m. PST (2 p.m. EST) Wednesday and 6 a.m. PST (9 a.m. EST) Thursday. Experts are of opinion that this asteroid would probably hit Earth somewhere from Central America to East Africa. According to Steve Chesley, of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., the most probable impact location of the object was just off the coast of West Africa at about 6 p.m. PST (9 p.m. EST) Jan.
