Meteorite leaves 12 metre crater in Managua.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

So it was not a "NEAR MISS"


Sounds like the old Naval gunnery tactic One Long, One Short, One for effect.

First hit in Russia, Now central America, next might be North Pacific.

Not so much, it seems

"This event was separated by 13 hours from the close Earth approach of 2014 RC, so the explosion and the asteroid are unrelated" ... "There was no obvious optical fireball or debris trail seen prior to the explosion, so it seems unlikely that the explosion in Nicaragua was related to a meteorite impact."
