a huge meteor exploded just a few hours ago over Siberia.


People in the Republic of Khakassia in southwest Siberia (Russia) witnessed a large fireball exploding in the sky on Tuesday, which briefly made the evening as bright as the day. Some even managed to catch the event on camera. “At first, I couldn’t understand what’s going on.

There was a sudden luminescence. It wasn’t as light as day, but still quite bright,” witness Olga Sagalakova told Russia Today. “We looked at the mountain near us… and there was huge meteor flying above it. It had a tail. Frankly, I was scared. I thought that it was a bomb,” she said.

additional information:


“[The meteor] was several times smaller than the one over Chelyabinsk, but its fragments may be found,” commented Viktor Grokhovsky, professor at the Ural Federal University. “Determining where they landed would require accurate calculation of its path. This may take a day or so.”

"It was probably no more than 10 to 15 meters in diameter, and was made of stone not iron," Natan Eysmont from the Russian Space Research Institute told TASS news agency. "Such meteors, unless they enter the atmosphere at a very sharp angle, are not dangerous."

I will update here and in the OP with videos et al. as soon as more information are available.

Wow that was bright!

The RT has a vid up on their site that shows a dashcam view. The person is driving along in perfect darkness, then the sky lights up, then you see the meteor-fireball fly by.

That seems out of order! But the entire sky lights up. You can see clouds, the road, other cars, just like somebody flicked a switch.

Crazy cool and pretty scary at the same time.

[ETA: Hey imbedded the vid! That is it]

Nice find.

On the dashcam vid it looks like the sky is lighting up ahead of the meteor, is that normal?

There's a difference between being fake news and being a Russian, state sponsored mouthpiece....

The meteor would begin to light up in the atmosphere before it reaches the point of view of the camera. Therefor the light and later the meteor which is not as fast as light.

Maybe ... that's why nobody 'lives' there anymore.

Here's your conspiracy theory.

Does every driver have dash cam over there????

I wonder how this Russian, 'expert' came with the, "15 metres diameter" figure, and doesn't seem to have any substantial sonic boom.
It seemed quite slow too, but then so also did the 2013 one.
As for RT being a fake site, not really. It may do some propaganda as all other TV sites do, but they do have some in-depth programming forbye.

The accident rate is ridiculous. Then they end up in court where they argue to death. Once they started putting dashcams in all that litigation disappeared. So, if you want insurance you get a dashcam. So, yeah, pretty much everybody has one now.

That will soon be a convention in most cars. Insurers here are starting to lower premiums if there is one fitted.
