Meteor strike injures hundreds in central Russia

In case you haven’t heard it, a meteor appeared to explode in the lower atmosphere in central Russia. Fortunately (due to the angle), it didn’t hit the ground, or the kinetic energy released could be like a small nuke. According to BBC, more than 1000 people are injured by broken windows. You can read detailed report and watch some video clips there: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21468116

I know an asteroid will fly by today, but I think this isn’t ‘it’. Unless Earth’s gravity broke up the asteroid into smaller pieces, which rained down on us. Okay, okay, maybe I’ve watched too much movies.

On YouTube, there are some low quality video clips as well:
