There was an asteroid that destroyed a forest in Serbia without ever hitting the ground.
The event is known as the Tunguska Impact and occurred in 1908. The asteroid was travelling around 33,500 miles per hour as it entered the Earths atmosphere and exploded at the height of roughly 28,000 feet. It resulted in a fireball with about 185 Hiroshima bombs worth of energy and destroyed around 800 square miles of Serbian forest. While it never actually touched the ground, it is still classified as an impact.
