Huge explosion in the skies

There was a huge explosion in the skies last Thursday evening. Astronomy Ireland said it was currently investigating the explosion, which occurred at 2100 BST. Maybe it was a space rock or satellite crashing into the atmosphere.

There have been two major explosions in the skies over Ireland in the past two decades. From the investigation, one was a Russian military satellite that exploded over the country, and the other was a rock from space.

"This was actually the planet Jupiter and it can be characterised by being by far the brightest star in the entire night sky,"
