A very large meteor has streaked across the sky in Russia. And there are lots of videos! You want to watch them. You really do.
There have been reports of many injuries from the sonic boom of the meteor breaking windows all over the place. If you’ve never heard a sonic boom from a plane before, they are LOUD and will break windows. This meteor was much bigger than an airplane. Thus, the shockwave had much more energy.
As Phil Plait says, this has nothing to do with the very large asteroid that’s scheduled to streak by the Earth this weekend. It’s just a coincidence.
I’ll certainly be keeping up with this story because it is AWESOME! I’ll post any other cool videos I find.
