BREAKING: Huge Meteor Blazes Across Sky Over Russia; Sonic Boom Shatters Windows

 BREAKING: Huge Meteor Blazes Across Sky Over Russia; Sonic Boom Shatters Windows
topic by Jetblack - 02-15-2013, 06:47 AM - Boxden > Wild videos, news, and other media








[UPDATE: When I wrote the headline for this article, I thought there was evidence the meteor had broken up in a single event while still high up in the atmosphere, so I used the word "explode". I don't want to mislead people; there may not have been any explosion at all. To be clear, the "explosion" heard in so many videos below is almost certianly from the shock wave of the meteoroid, and not from it exploding or hitting the ground.]

Apparently, at about 09:30 local time, a very big meteor burned up over Chelyabinsk, a city in Russia just east of the Ural mountains, and about 1500 kilometers east of Moscow. The fireball was incredibly bright, rivaling the Sun! There was a pretty big sonic boom from the fireball, which set off car alarms and shattered windows. Im seeing some reports of many people injured (by shattered glass blown out by the shock wave). Im also seeing reports that some pieces have fallen to the ground, but again as I write this those are unconfirmed.

Note: This is almost certainly unrelated to the asteroid 2012 DA14 that will pass on Friday. See below for details.

[Let me be clear: This is breaking news, and reports are coming in so fast I cant keep up. Ill update this post as I can, but treat everything here as tentative until I can get more information! Note also lots of hoaxes are turning up, like a video of a flaming crater that's actually a flaming pit in Turlmenistan that's been burning for decades (called "The Door to Hell"). Be cautious and be skeptical.]

Dozens of videos are popping up on YouTube, and some are incredible. This one from a cars dashboard camera shows the meteor coming through the atmosphere.
