An asteroid is about to burn up over Africa.

Well, it’s going to burn up because it’s only a few yards wide. Hardly merits being called an asteroid. This stuff happens frequently. This one is noteworthy only because we discovered it shortly before it arrived.
Something a few hundred yards wide… now that’s a different matter. That would not burn up. Targeted appropriately, it might take out LA.

@dsearls A glitch in that last post. The great David Reed post linked was an error (not mine, faik). Belonged in another tweet.
