As reported earlier in this thread:
(paraphrase)
"we are only able to track objects coming from the dark night time skies. This object came from the direction of the sun"

I'm dubious to this reasoning, but thats what was said.

fixed

And this is a gas well in Uzhbekastan??(spelling), or Kazakstan?? (spelling) somewhere back east. It's called hells gate or something like that. Not in any way a meteorite crash.

This doesn't make any sense:


9:14 GMT: Sixteen people were hospitalized after meteorite debris hit the Russian Urals.


Link

So what are they saying ?
That this meteor blew into a bazillion little fragments ?
Or were these people injured from flying glass, etc ?

Are these quakes in Russia's Northern Latitudes near the event at all?

Don't you find it odd, that we get this kind of situation and the only feeds to the public go down.???????

Your feed doesn't work for me. Possibly overloaded.

Is it linked to 2012 DA14? Who knows really. I wouldn't be surprised if it was and equally i wouldn't be surprised if it was just coincidence.

Just to offer comfort to my fellow ATS'ers i thought i would share the doozy that we only have the technology to spot the bigger sized asteroids (at the moment) so we literally have no idea about ones like this that hit Russia unless we get an extremely lucky break and the experts or amateurs manage to spot one.

Must have been terrifying to be there.

I love our local news. Channel 10.

"hundreds injured as a meteorite plummets to Earth."

now if I'd just come in the door and was aware of DA14 and heard that, I'd be freaking out.

God I hate our local news.

Well I may speak too soon, they've yet to actually do the piece, this was the lead out from the last story about that boat with the people and the toilets.. oh the humanity..

No, those earthquakes are way over to the northeastern corner of Russia.

The meteor blew overhead about 1500 kms southeast of Moscow.

Yeah Nasa say's satellites are 500 miles higher than this asteroid DA14 is going to come near earth. Closer than satellites...

Scientists are conflicting stating that this event in Russia is related to this Asteroid, and that it isn't On one side, and then on another side. What are the chances that we could be hit by 2 asteroids at the same time from different directions? Come on...

One side is stating that it was coming in from the Sun, so we could not detect it. The other side is saying that it is probably related. Remember Armageddon?

I believe that most of the damage (like the broken windows and the toppled wall of the factory) was from the concussion wave.
The meteorite seems to have hit in a lake , but I think it broke apart into at least 2 large pieces from what I can hear of the audio.

Damn it!

I was just going to ask if there's a way to track/alert about smaller rocks hitting us...

WOW, some of the most amazing footage I've ever seen being uploaded on the net!


A Russian military source claims it was a meteor that they "blew to pieces" with a missile salvo at an altitude of 20km....


Excerpt from RT:

"According to unconfirmed reports, the meteorite was intercepted by an air defense unit at the Urzhumka settlement near Chelyabinsk. A missile salvo blew the meteorite to pieces at an altitude of 20 kilometers, local newspaper Znak reports quoting a source in the military."

I wonder how large the pieces are. Probably around the size of a human fist. Maybe smaller?

That video's time stamp is for dec 31 2012....


Many Russian dash cam users don't bother with setting the right time and date, mainly due to awkward controls on these cheap recorders, I know for sure as I live in Russia

Well two confirmed fragments according to RT News that I can see... one hit a lake, and another smashed into a zinc factory. There's probably a bunch more other chunks though, because they're saying that 6 different cities are reporting damages.

... unless those damages were just blown windows and such from the explosion ?

Guess we'll find out eventually as the news keeps coming in.

I think it's a shameless PR of Russian military. Hitting a meteorite flying tens of kilometers per second with a missile, aiming and deploying it within few seconds? In their dreams, maybe...

Yeah that seems to be the consensus. I think they might have averted another Tunguska event... Good to know that we have the ability to defend from these...


Oh and yeah, amazing footage.
