The year has started in an auspicious manner for asteroid-watchers with the possible impact (and subsequent disintegration) of 2014AA.
Spotted on New Year's Day, this pint-sized asteroid is believed to have burned up over the Atlantic at around 5am this morning (GMT).
As asteroids go, it was a tiddler at less than 2m in diameter; still, every fly-by is an excuse for a drink - cheers!
Now They Are Actually Boasting About It!
