Meteorite Explosion in Russia

There are numerous reports by the global Russian news agency RT on twitter this morning with posts mentioning that an explosion may have injured over 700 people.   More information being reported as witnesses claimed that they saw a burning streak in the sky and and an explosion soon after that blew out many windows and some doors outside of  Chelyabinsk in central Russia. 
There are unconfirmed reports of debris in three locations and a possible crater that was located.                       

Scientists are have yet to report if this meteor was related to the 2012 DA14 Meteor that was known to pass very close to the Earth today. We do not know if other meteor fragments could be expected in the next few days to strike the Earth.

Below is the video from a dash cam.


  1. Those people must have been terrified. What an amazing sight.

  2. I agree.. I can't imagine driving down the street and seeing something like that.
