Freaky Friday – Meteor Explodes Over Russia

15 02 2013

Not to be confused with asteroid 2012 DA14, which is also making a close pass in just a couple of hours.

This would be fascinating and terrifying to witness in person:

Members of our editorial staff once directly observed a fireball which was the result of a large-ish “shooting star” entering the atmosphere, while on assignment covering renegade desert raves in the Mojave Desert. It was truly a sight to behold. The video above is much more spectacular.
