A meteoroid strikes the earth directly on the equator. At the time it lands, it is traveling exactly vertical and downwards. Due to the impact, the time for earth to rotate once increase by 0.5 s, so the day is 0.5 s longer, undetectable to laypersons. After the impact, the people on earth ignore the extra halfsecond and life goes on as normal.
