A two meter wide asteroid hit earth on Saturday in Africa, and did it ever light up the sky.  Astronomers say that they detected an asteroid just a couple of hours before impact.  The South African sky saw the amazing light effects that these space rocks can give off.   Astronomers say that this has happened only a few times before, since record keeping of asteroids hitting earth.  This one was detected by a telescope on Saturday afternoon.  

There are from time to time smaller asteroids that hit earth; however this one was a lot larger in width than the usual ones.
