Air Force fails to acknowledge mysterious meteor that crashed to Earth near US military base | The Independent

The US Air Force failed to report a major meteor explosion near a military base in Greenland earlier this summer, leading to concern and confusion.  The explosion contained 2.1 kilotons of force and occurred just above an early-warning radar at the Thule Air Force base in June, according to Hans Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists. Mr Kristensen confirmed the explosion in a tweet on Wednesday, suggesting the meteor could have been mistaken by some as a “Russian first strike”.
