October 10, 2019 16:16 UTC – U.S. Government Sensors detected a 0.57 kiloton event in China’s autonomous region of Inner Mongolia, ending near the town of Tiebeicun. The attached KML or KMZ files are often used to share geographic data and they are most often used in Google Earth software. KML stands for Keyhole Markup Language, which is an XML notation used to store geographic data in the files. KMZ files are simply a zipped version of KML files, which can also contain image overlays and other referenced content. On most meteor events documented on Strewnify, you will find an attached KMZ file, containing... file contains the reference points, along with approximate start and end points at 100km and 20km, respectively.
The Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), is part of the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. CNEOS collects data from U.S. Government sensors, and releases it for research purposes. CNEOS data is available publicly at https://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/fireballs/.... event precision is limited to one decimal point of latitude and longitude and this is represented in the KML file by a rectangle around the end point.
