Almost wiped out by a rugby ball !

Late on Saturday night, 2009 November 21, a very bright meteor was seen flashing across the sky from the northern parts of South Africa. Tim Cooper, Director of the ASSA Comet & Meteor Section, estimates that the apparent magnitude of the meteorite was -18, but get this , they say the Meteor was the size of a rugby ball!

In the picture below is a direct hit from thousands of years ago, the meteor was the size of a house. A few more of those in south 'ifricka....... no world cup !!
