Giant Meteor Hits Russia . . . Videos Are Awesome
Posted February 15th, 2013 @ 8:32am

A huge meteor landed in Russia earlier this morning


It happened in the Ural Mountains region of Western Russia, and the videos show giant trails of smoke, and a huge fireball streaking down through the sky.  Then you hear a massive boom when it lands.

The shockwaves of the impact blew out windows and damaged buildings, and early reports said somewhere between 100 and 400 people were injured, from broken glass and concussions.  Witnesses said it felt like an earthquake.

Supposedly about twenty thousand rescue workers have been sent to deal with the structural damage.

Some unconfirmed reports say the meteorite was blown apart by a missile defense system before landing . . . and of course the internet is already stirring up rumors about a UFO.  But in the videos, the drivers don't seem all that affected by what they see.
