So.. it is probably debris ejected ahead of the meteoroid

Ejected ahead of the asteroid?
How do you figure that debris would be accelerated so it arrived 14 or 15 hours ahead of the asteroid?


Well, I don't feel like mucking with the math right now.. but they travel some 16k to 125k mph or so. An object hitting another at that speed would send it how far ahead? Good question I guess.

But then it could be something else entirely. A relatively peaceful group of floating space debris could have been struck and send flying. Tomorrows meteoroid may not have anything to do with what is happening in Russia now - it may have never touched this one. Something larger may have sent these flying in our direction (including the one missing us tomorrow).

All I am saying is when do you remember a news story where a meteoroid actually caused damage on this scale? Now.. when is the last time you heard such a story.. and it preceded a passing meteoroid the following day?

I believe in few coincidences. I dismiss much of the jibber-jabber on this site as such. I don't think for a minute this is a coincidence. There is some correlation between tomorrows fly-by and this event.

Looks like roughly 100 people have been injured so far by these blasts

news.yahoo.com...


MOSCOW (AP) — A meteor streaked across the sky over Russia's Ural Mountains on Friday morning, causing sharp explosions and reportedly injuring around 100 people.


Dosent look like there's any life threatening injuries being reported yet, just mostly broken glass debris.


Interior Ministry spokesman Vadim Kolesnikov said 102 people had called for medical assistance following the incident, mostly for treatment of injuries from glass broken by the explosions.


As for the roof of the factory that was damaged that was mentioned earlier in the thread, the part that collapsed was roughly 600 sqaure meters.


Kolsenikov also said about 600 square meters (6,000 square feet) of a roof at a zinc factory had collapsed.

Maybe those metal cauldrons in the Valley of Death shot it out of the sky like they did the Tunguska object.


On RT Headline News, they showed a picture of a zinc factory with a "giant hole" in it while talking about the meteor. I couldn't understand if they were saying that a piece of the meteor actually blasted a hole in the factory roof or if the shockwave caused it to collapse. They said that no nuclear facilities were hit or affected by the blast so that's good.

While I am in bed reading this thread the sky lit up outside my bedroom window. I turned to look out but can't see anything. Perhaps a meteor passing by?

A lot of BS on the news already. First they said there was no impact and now look at this pic. First they said they shot it with a missile, now they say it didin't happen. First they said there were 4 injured, now they say over 100 are injured. They say it fell on Chelyabinsk, then why the hell 20 000 MCHS (Russian FEMA workers) are working on this including 3 other regions like Perm. Why does it smell of sulfer in Perm? Why is there a huge black cloud in Perm region that appeared after the impact? I already don't buy the official version.

What I find really strange is that "double smoke trail" doesn't look right for a meteor....

Something else....

Possibly, I went outside for about 30 mins and saw two kickass meteorites. Would have stayed out longer, but visual snow crap makes me dizzy when watching the night sky a lot of the time now

Just put on the ISS live link and the red and white lights have started again so must be more of the meteor shower happening again....

This is about twelve hours ahead of the asteroid fly-by.

Earth moves 18 miles/sec in its orbit, about 65,000 mph. In 12 hours, that's
almost 800,000 miles. We're that far AWAY from the intersection point with the asteroid.

Comet and asteroid/meteoroid debris tends to spread out forward and aft of the main body,
not so much to the sides [although meteor showers can spread over a number of days
indicating that those clouds have slightly widened].

That's why, without even being able to analyze the track of the meteor, I'd venture to guess
it is unrelated to the bigger rock heading our way. We're well short of the rendezvous [crossing] point
with the asteroid.

I don't.

What object hitting it? You mean another, unknown, asteroid?


I believe in coincidences
So do I.

One more link to another up close vid and a sonic boom blowing out windows.

people saying that a missile salvo couldn't hit it...

it's only dependent on simple math and lauching angle. Granted the missiles probably wouldn't be able to chase it (the bolide, meteor, asteroid, ufo oO) but to say that it would be an impossible shot is just wrong.

Given that the event took place not long ago, we'll certainly see some more images uploaded to youtube in the next few days. If we're lucky we might even some videos that disprove or confirms this.

It looked like the trails left by a missile. The one perhaps that struck the meteor? My guess at least. First boom was it hitting the meteor, later booms are impacts of the bits of the meteor hitting terra firma.

For the Russian SAM's to hit a meteor, wow that was at least a fairly large target to get acquired and locked and fired upon...in the few seconds that it looked to take from entry to flash.



Count me in the hard to believe camp about shooting down an incoming meteor but Grat's if they did. I guess. If they did it might end up fragmenting and falling into factories and oh like causing serious damage.

Plus no incoming halo, I dunno about that military story.

Yeah. Pretty amazingly quick response time.

Does anyone have an alternative?
