This March is turning out to be no less than adequate because the earth has hosted three NEO (near earth objects) asteroids so far, and reports are forecasting that the middle of the month (the Ides of March) will continue this trend of more asteroids, meteors and fireballs near the earth.

Three asteroids came very close to earth between March 05-06, 2014; 20014 EF, 2014 EC and 20014 DX110.

Central New Mexico- (USA) and Yellownife- North West Territories (Canada) reported the trappings of asteroids, meteors and fireballs. It was said the in Yellownife that the fireball was too bright that night turned into day. Both of these incidents may have connections to the NEOs on March 06, 2014.

Where in the world will the asteroids/meteors strike next. That’s the what not, anyone’s guess.
