A Giant Asteroid Said to have Crashed into the Atmosphere over India: Is it True?

A video regarding a giant asteroid that has crashed into the atmosphere over India has started to be shared widely on the internet.

Here’s what we know about it.

“A giant asteroid has crashed into the atmosphere over India”?

The video that is now being shared mentioning that “a giant asteroid has crashed into the atmosphere over India” is not expected to be true as there are no official reports or updates anywhere stating such an occurrence. The video is being shared on the Twitter platform and most of the tweets are being shared with this same statement mentioned above. The video is also being shared with other taglines as well on other social media and messaging platforms, but it should be noted that in anywhere the video it isn’t mentioned where or when the asteroid crashed into the atmosphere.

Recently, the Perseid meteor shower was seen in the sky during the night of Saturday, the 12th of August, and the next day morning on the 13th of August 2023, and an article published by The Hindu mentions a person who was able to click six images of the Perseid meteor shower. A picture captured by him is given for reference below.

The Perseid meteor shower occurs annually during the months between July and August. The meteor shower occurs when the earth passes through the debris trails that originate from the comet named 109P/Swift-Turtle and the reason why it is called Perseid is because, it emerges from the direction of the constellation, Perseus. The meteor shower is clearly visible in the northern hemisphere and, as per a report, the countries of Austria, Turkey, Croatia, and Spain were able to witness this year’s Perseid meteor shower.

In order to capture the image or the video of the Perseid meteor shower, the person who is capturing should make sure that there is no light pollution and note, the person who managed to capture the meteor shower was only able to get the image on 6 photos of the 150 photos captured.

The video that is being shared is not at all similar to those images captured and, again, the authenticity of the video and the news is under question.
