Video – USA: Watch this streaking asteroid

Check out this footage from NASA, filmed in Tennessee – showing an asteroid streaking across the night sky.

There are millions of asteroids, many thought to be the shattered remnants of planetesimals, bodies within the young Sun’s solar nebula that never grew large enough to become planets.

Rarely, small asteroids passing close to Earth may be naked-eye visible for a short time.
