January 02, 2014 an asteroid crashed landed in the Southern Atlantic Ocean near Caracas, Venezuela. The event happen so quickly that it was noticed only a day before while the world was in celebration. The event was labeled (Asteroid 2014AA), the first asteroid of 2014 but a very rare event. Was this asteroid a part of the debris from Comet ISON’s meteor show. It has been stated by NASA scientists that the bulk of COMET ISON debris field will pass through the Earth’s atmosphere January 12, 20114. Was this asteroid a sign of things to come.
“It was New Year’s Eve, but that didn’t stop observer Richard Kowalski from scanning the sky for near-Earth objects (NEOs).
He hadn’t been using the 60-inch telescope on Arizona’s Mount Lemmon for long when he noticed a 19th-magnitude blip skimming through northern Orion in a seven-image series begun at 5:16 p.m. (1:16 Universal Time on January 1st). After confirming that it was a new find, Kowalski dutifully submitted positions and times to the IAU’s Minor Planet Center. Then he went back to the night’s observing run.
Thus did the Mount Lemmon reflector, part of the Catalina Sky Survey, discover 2014 AA, the first asteroid found this year. But at the time neither Kowalski nor anyone else realized that the little intruder was only 300,000 miles (500,000 km) from Earth and closing fast.”
