NASA recently reported about an explosion of a meteor over the Bering Sea that went unnoticed until this week. However, a UFO-centric blog claims that this is just a cover-up.

According to NASA, a huge fireball exploded around 16 miles (26 kilometers) above the Bering Sea last Dec. 18, 2018. It was referred to as a fireball because it had an exceptionally bright meteor. The said object also released approximately 173 kilotons of energy. However, despite NASA's announcement, Scott C. Waring argued on his blog that this may just be a cover-up.

In a post on UFO Sightings Daily, Waring claimed that NASA tried covering up the "3-5 mile UFO as an explosion." He went to say that NASA could not come up with a better explanation for the large UFO over Bering Sea that was also spotted by weather satellites and radars across the globe.

NASA reported that two of its instruments on the Terra satellite managed to capture images of the meteor's remnants. The agency collected an image sequence showing the trail of the meteor's shadow through the Earth's atmosphere to the northwest. The Sun's low angle also elongated the path of the shadow on top of the clouds. More importantly, the GIF NASA shared online also showed the fireball emitting an orange-tinted cloud when it super-heated the air.

Waring, however, said that it doesn't look like an explosion. He explained how the image showed more like a "3-mile UFO that is lowering itself below the water's surface." He also pointed out that if the explosion released as much as 173 kilotons of energy, which is ten times more than the atomic bomb over Hiroshima, then people within the 30-60 mile radius explosion should have seen it. But that is not the case.

The blogger also noted that the captured fireball last December could be considered the "most powerful meteor to be observed since 2013." Nonetheless, since it occurred in a remote area and at such an altitude, it did not pose any threat to anyone on the ground.

Waring previously claimed that NASA has been concealing findings or hiding evidence of the existence of aliens from the public.
