Several reports circulating on the Innerweb reveal that a National Aeronautics Space Administration spacecraft was mistaken for an asteroid before the craft made its reentry burn to Earth, the agency claims.
NASA assured Earthlings in advance that the spacecraft reentry will pose “no threat to our planet – or anyone on it – and this is a normal final operational occurrence for retired spacecraft”.
“The old scientific craft was originally thought to be an object on an impact trajectory with Earth when it was spotted last week,” reports the Independent. “But further observations revealed it was not an asteroid but in fact a man-made object: the Orbiting Geophysics Observatory 1 (OGO-1), which was launched in 1964.”
It’s believed that the following footage shows the spacecraft burning up in the atmosphere.
