I have to wonder about people's common sense? My entire philosophy of life is to not do stupid stuff. In other words, don't take unnecessary risks. People die from accidents all the time. I would rather not be a statistic.
I think that this is fake, but a scenario like this is definitely possible. History has recorded people seeing a fire on the moon from an apparent meteor strike. I have heard about a strike that was more recent.
A few years ago an asteroid exploded over Russian with the force of a powerful nuclear weapon.
