Russian Meteor Largest in a Century
A meteor exploded with a bright flash above central Russia this morning, injuring hundreds of people. Some of these video clips were captured by dashboard cameras. People heading to work in Chelyabinsk heard what sounded like an explosion, saw a bright light, and then felt a shockwave. According to NASA, the meteor was 17 meters in size prior to entering the Earth's atmosphere, making it the largest meteor event since 1908's Tunguska landed in Siberia. The meteor shower is not related to Asteroid 2012 DA14, which passed by the Earth today.
