Meteorite falls in Russia

Meteorite Falls in Russian Urals

Chelyabinsk, Russia More than 1,000 people were injured when a meteorite shot across the sky in central Russia on Friday sending fireballs crashing to Earth, smashing windows and setting off car alarms.

Amateur videos showed a meteorite crossing the sky in early morning hours in different cities several hundred kilometers apart.

The meteorite raced across the horizon, leaving a long white trail in its wake which could be seen as far as 125 miles away.

In Yekaterinburg. Car alarms went off, windows shattered and mobile phones worked only intermittently.

Chelyabinsk city authorities said about 400 people sought medical help, mainly for light injuries caused by flying glass.

No fatalities were reported but President Vladimir Putin, who was due to host Finance Ministry officials from the Group of 20 nations in Moscow, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev were informed.

A local ministry official said the meteor shower may have been connected with an asteroid the size of an Olympic swimming pool that was due to pass Earth at a distance of 27,520 km (17,100 miles) but this could not be confirmed.

Chelyabinsk city authorities urged people to stay indoors unless they needed to pick up their children from schools and kindergartens. They said a blast had been heard at an altitude of 10,000 meters (32,800 feet), apparently signaling it occurred when the meteorite entered Earth's atmosphere.

"Chelyabinsk was in the meteor shower zone. I think experts will provide more specific data later. I would like to address people living in our city to ask them to remain calm," Chelyabinsk mayor Sergei Davydov said.

Such incidents are rare. A meteorite is thought to have devastated an area of more than 2,000 sq km (1,250 miles) in Siberia in 1908, smashing windows as far as 200 km (125 miles) from the point of impact.

The U.S. space agency NASA has said an asteroid known as 2012 DA14, about 46 meters in diameter, would have an encounter with Earth closer than any asteroid since scientists began routinely monitoring them about 15 years ago.

I was talking to people about this earlier in class, and someone said they should have shot it before it hit Earth. I laughed quite a bit.

A lot of interesting science in that video. It's amazing how a sonicboom could travel so far and effect so many people. God bless them, though.

It wouldn't have been impossible, but it wouldn't have changed much. The asteroid never actually made impact, it exploded above the surface due to the friction of entering Earth's atmosphere and that's what caused the loudest explosion. The smaller ones were the actual impacts from meteor fragments.

travis has a spectacular aura abouttravis has a spectacular aura abouttravis has a spectacular aura about

The thing i found interesting about this was how it happened on the same day as the asteroid passing earth. They say it was an unrelated event, but wait, whats this? Yes, its another meteor down in california within hours of the one in russia. And much less time from when the asteroid went past earth... Unrelated? I think not.

Hah, my favourite thing about this story was when I read the article on another website, it said at the bottom "Note: This incident is unrelated to the asteroid scheduled to arrive later this month."
And I was all "._."


But anyway, while there were injuries and damage, I can't help but think this is a really cool news story.
