The sky is falling!
The sky isn’t falling…right? That’s what I thought, until I learned about megacryometeors. Oh sure, you’ve surely seen rain, snow, freezing rain, and hail. But have you ever seen a megacryometeor? What is it, you ask? It’s basically a huge chunk of ice that falls from the sky. The biggest one recorded weighed 110 pounds and landed in Brazil. There have been 50 such recorded incidents of megacryometeors since 2000, so roughly 2 per year! Seems like a lot – right? That’s what I thought, until I learned that Earth is struck by lightning 100 times per second. So…wait…does that mean the sky IS falling?
