Here is a view of rocks that  have been coming at us from space lately.

But don't worry most of them are 500,000 to 8 million times smaller than the little blue dot in the middle of the pic (Earth)

DON'T WORRY!!!!!!

The meteorite at Tunguska was probably less than 50,000 times smaller than the little blue dot and look what damage that caused.
Personally I have been more concerned about supernova once I found out what they could do. More chance of being hit by a metoerite, me thinks.
Che sera.

Axtyr.
Had to correct the figures a bit and more like 500,000 to 8 million  times smaller.....But there is a big one or two out there  just rolling along looking for a planet to bump into.Laughing

Some recent and upcoming Near Earth Encounters.

Something large whacked into Jupiter on the 13/09/21 Gave quite a flash about 2000 km wide. (The white spot aligned with the arrows.)  Lucky whatever it was didn't come our way . It would have made a big mess in the atmosphere

As the magnetism is 14½ times higher than us and the mass is 2½ times that of all the other planets combined. I guess it would grab some of those Iron based meteorites before they hit us. Let hope so.

Jupiter is a meteor and comet vacuum cleaner  the sucks in quite a lot of stuff that might otherwise hit the earth.
The sun is also a fairly good space rock vacuum cleaner .
