Space object traveling Mach 74 explodes above U.S. air base, military silent

The military has made no announcement regarding an airborne earthbound object that exploded with 2.3 kilotons force 26 miles above U.S. Air Base Thule on July 25th around 11:55 pm.

The object was traveling 55,000 mph (15 miles/sec) or Mach 74.

Director of the Nuclear Implementation Project, Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen tweeted last Wednesday: “Meteor explodes with 2.1 kilotons force 43 km above missile early warning radar at Thule Air Base”

Kristensen’s tweet was a followup to Rocket Ron Blaalke’s July 29th tweet which read: “A fireball was detected over Greenland on July 25, 2018 by US Government sensors at an altitude of 43.3 km. The energy from the explosion is estimated to be 2.1 kilotons.”

The fireball’s data was listed on the Center for Near Earth Object Studies official website.
