Meteorite

Post by Kerby » Fri Feb 15, 2013 12:40 pm

Hi! I live in Russia, the city of Chelyabinsk. Morning, driving to work, he saw the fall of a meteorite! Saw and heard the explosion itself! Fell away from the city, the blast beaten a lot of windows, damaged many buildings! Movies can be found online http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Omh7_I8vI , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpVXmBiNmsY , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c-0iwBE ... r_embedded

DAMN!!! Amazing!!

Hm.... I'm wondering... for 2 days, it was late evening, my wife and I saw something else like this!
It flewvery slow, but with fire on its back, like a meteorit!
I thought at first it would scrap space, but I'm not sure! It looked like a meteorite. The general direction was also East! But I do not think the 2 days needed to Russia!

This year will fly around a lot of it!
The last digit of Pi is 7! I calculated this, as I counted to infinity yesterday!

Holy crap! :shock: You don't get to see that everyday. All those blasted windows, hope there was not too much casualties.

Hi! I thought this only happens in the movies, but now I have witnessed with my own eyes, the fireball flew lower than airplanes fly! People injured by broken glass crashed windows ... Several buildings suffered from the shock! Me and my family all right. Life goes on!
