Meteor over Russia

PostBy: Richard S. On: Fri Feb 15, 2013 4:06 am



This is impressive with sonic boom, broken windows...


I saw one of these back in the mid nineties while on canoe trip and it looked pretty similar to this one, guess that's probably a once in a lifetime event. It was impressive to say the least. No sound though. The one we saw was just above the tree tops and disappeared below the tree line. It was at night and we were camping on an island just above the Wyalusing bridge. That one actually made the national news, if I recall it landed on some guys house somewhere in NY.

Impressive! The TV just said some 400 people injured, mostly from flying glass. I've heard many a sonic boom in my younger years, but to have one break windows? That's takes a big boom!

They said people thought it was a weapon. I don't blame them. Geepers.

<addition> Not only windows.... it blew the roof off a factory!

I'd guess the window install people had a busy day. Nice razor wire.If that happened here, the law suits would already be in overload mode--sue the weather people, the emergency people, GOD, oh yeah, the piece of crap lawyers would be having a ball. :mad: :(

Saw this on Twitter this morning.

I can't help but feel disappointed though that the big asteroid that's passing the Earth today is going to miss the planet by a little over 17K miles.

:shock: ????????????? :shock: I'm not an astrophysosist (sp.) but I would guess if that thing hit we would have quite a little disturbance. Much more than a few broken windows.

Darn global warming! Everyone quick send me $20 dollars so I can get started with the research on how burning coal may not have contributed. Then continue sending me $5 / ton there afterwards to continue funding. :D

This seems to have perhaps been a traveling partner with the main chunk that will fly by at about 2:24 PM EST. Perhaps it was in a distant orbit of the larger mass. There could be additional straglers before and after the main asteroid flys by.

As I understand it was traveling in the wrong direction for it to be part of that asteroid.

Correct. It was already confirmed not to be a part of the larger one that is passing by us later today.
