A meteorite hit western Cuba on Friday afternoon, according to eyewitness reports.
The event sounds like it was pretty dramatic: “We’re receiving reports that a meteor was seen in the sky across the Florida Keys,” NWS Key West tweeted, adding that the space rock “likely exploded over the province of Pinar del Río.”
CNN’s Havana correspondent, Patrick Oppmann, described the sound of a “large explosion” in the town of Viñales and posted pictures of the fragments..
And perhaps adding the oddest part to this… February 1 2019 was rumored since 2002 to be the target date for a meteor to hit earth.. back at the early part of this century there were fears it would be planet ending.
Maybe not the meteor that wiped out earth… but sure a fragment that freaked out Cuba..???
