NASA and the U.S. Space Force recently inked an agreement authorizing the public release of data collected by the U.S. government sensors on bolides, large bright meteors that explode in the atmosphere.
"The release of these new bolide data helps further the pursuit of improved capabilities for understanding these objects and our preparedness to respond to the impact hazard NEOs pose to Earth," said Lindley Johnson, Planetary Defense Officer at NASA Headquarters.
