Wanna see every meteorite impact from the last 1,100 years?

As of the start of this year, we've found 34,842 meteorites that came crashing down to Earth, dating back to 861. We've only managed to spot 1,046 of those while they were falling, and this awesome data visualization from The Guardian lets you watch each one make impact.

As of the start of this year, we've found 34,842 meteorites that came crashing down to Earth, dating back to 861. We've only managed to spot 1,046 of those while they were falling, and this awesome data visualization from The Guardian lets you watch each one, or at least a cute little representation of them, make impact. Watch for things to get a little crazy around 1960. [The Guardian]
