Apparently this happened just a couple of hours ago. A large object exploded in the sky over Eastern Russia and many auto dash cams captured video of the very bright meteor pieces falling through the sky. Check it out!
Yikes! Reminiscent of the 1908 meteor explosion...but in a more populated area this time I hope everyone who was injured was not hurt badly and will be OK
It sounds as though there were some bad injuries. Many people rushed to the windows to look outside after the bright flash of light and then the windows exploded. It must have been very scary. I bet the people there thought it was nuclear war.
Back when I was a teenager I saw a meteor fireball so bright that it was quite visible at dusk before any stars appeared in the sky. It left a long smoke trail, too.
