Meteor over Russia....

Recommended Posts

Now why does that only happen in Britain when It's cloudy late on a school day when I can't be out with my telescope?

I've just been reading about that. What a shock that must have been.

How come so many Russians are driving around with a camera running though?

Amazing footage. What are the odds of that meteor and the close approach of 2012 DA14 on the same day? Pretty astronomical I think :)

James, I think the cameras are either required by or give a big discount from the motor insurers in Russia.

Wow, see the video is one thing, but hearing that shock wave is something else.

Either this was 2012 DA14 (which it probably wasn't) or we definitely weren't expecting this :Envy: :Envy: .

Hope everyone affected is safe.

Yeah - loads of youtube videos of Russian car accidents.

Amazing videos of the fireballs - reminds me of the opening sequences to Armageddon. It's fortunate that Bruce Willis has finished the latest Die Hard movie and we should now be able to call upon his services :smile:

The hole after the metor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHAKp-I3Ffo OMG OMG OMG :o

That's fake.

That hole is known as the Doorway to Hell and it is in the Karakum Desert. It's been there since 1971 when Soviets drilling for oil opened it up inadvertently. They decided to light the gas to prevent pollution, and it's been burning ever since.

Yes a bit ambiguous :)

The hole is not fake, the assertion that the hole is a result of this morning's meteor is fake :)
