Reports of up to 500 people being injured by the meteorite shower that struck Russia today. The footage is quite incredible.

Unfortunately my crappy phone is not letting me add a link to the footage. sad.gif

Thanks for adding a link! original.gif

Already the conspiracy theories are out, it's a UFO/rogue satellite/spy plane from the USA/North Korean nuclear rocket...!

This freaks me out a little only because this is meant to pass over tomorrow morning.

It's breath taking. So bright and the bang from the sonic boom is immense. I'd be freaking out thinking it was a missile strike.

I Set up my telescope last night and got up early at 5am to see if I could catch the other predicted one ... Alas it was cloudy  sad.gif  rolleyes.gif

I wonder if the passing of this larger one sent other unknown ones out of their orbit. It was pretty dramatic.

For years when I was a child I feared this sort of thing happening while sleeping. I would lie in bed at night trying to listen for certain doom. It alternated between fearing a meteorite or a aeroplane  crashing in to the house.

Seeing that footage and that it has harmed all those poor people brought back old those old fears.


Scary sh*t.

I watched on the news this morning and the footage was amazing although I'm sure being there in person would have been terrifying.

I so wanted to be in Russia.

I have the science nerd jelluz.

Awesome stuff! And thanks to modern technology, we all got a peak at a meteor up close. biggrin.gif

I would have absolutely crapped myself if I was there.

I'm in awe of how the drivers continued to calmly drive.
