Meteor Travelling 114,000MPH Hits Ohio, USA (VIDEO)

An asteroid travelling at more than 114,000 mph - or 51 km/s - has been captured slamming into the American countryside by Nasa's all-sky camera in Hiram, Ohio.

Take a look at the video below - but don't be worried. Nasa says that while its Asteroid Watch has been shut down in the wake of the US government crisis, there are still many people watching the skies... for deadly asteroids we can't do anything about.
