Doubtful, they are/were both on different trajectories. Just a big coincidence. Big pieces like this hit the Earth more often than you would think (although still not that often), it is just uncommon for them to explode over populated areas.

persistent trains (smoke trails) are common with fireball type meteors and may last from seconds to minutes. I don't know why anyone is so mystified by this... If something burns up it gives off smoke right?


As the rare, larger meteoroids enter the atmosphere, they often leave a smoke trail behind. This trail can last from a few seconds to many minutes. The longer lasting trails are called trains. While they start out straight, the speedy high altitude winds (around 80 kilometers or 60 miles high) can distort them into strange shapes.

No one's questioning the smoke trail, but the fact that there appear 2 from the one source.

I can envisage why it is so, others can't or prefer to explain it differently.

But no one, at least I hope, is doubting the reason why there is a smoke trail behind this thing.

Has anyone even confirmed the trajectory? There has been no one able to tell if it came from the same direction as D4... ( new comet passing tonight ).

You would expect they would reassuring the people with news like this.

So any news about rocks dropping elsewhere?
In Finnish media there were also news about an guy who found a odd rock at the yard of he:s cabin the place was Viitasaari i think, snow was melted around the rock and it weighed about 2 kg it had appeared there during the night or morning. This is getting interesting....

extract from BBC NEWS




The Chelyabinsk region, about 1,500km (930 miles) east of Moscow, is home to many factories, a nuclear power plant and the Mayak atomic waste storage and treatment centre.

Ah great, with a blacked out space no telling if something extra is coming our way.

Apparently this came from a completely different trajectory to DA 14 and is unrelated.

What an extraordinary event! And i'm amazed how quickly videos appear online now.

The claim of artillery fire was from the first RT article posted. That makes perfect sense, and i come to a few surprising conclusions:

1. the object had been tracked from outer space

2. many small pieces are a LOT better than one large impact

3. Russian military preparedness is better than we suspect

4. You don't need catch such a high speed object, only intercept it

5. The Pulkovo Observatory seems to think there will be more


Could be wrong about any of these, but they seem fairly straightforward?

Not a conclusion, just a thought, Dr Carol Rosin.

I'm sick and tired of this response, yes everyone keeps claiming this, but can we get a source please?
I'm pretty sure some ATS"expert" said it.

The Earth gets bombarded with small meteors annually, and has been so since the days of the unknown. Chances of the biggie hitting the our planet are 1 to a Million, even though the distance in which it will swing by is quite close in therms of Space measurements. Could it be that the Mayans actually had it right

It about 7 hours actually. And just because rocks in space are rocks in space close to earth, doesn't require them to be related.

They may be. it might be a swarm of them has just missed us, and this rogue fell into an orbit that made its escape impossible.

To be perfectly honest, I do have a hard time reconciling this in my mind as a sheer chance event this close to an observable NEO.

Still, no matter how long I stand out the back yard looking up, it's all night time sky as usual for me. And this time tomorrow, things will be routine as usual.

... famous last words?

It is because of the technological advancement and everyone owning a video-recording cellphone, that these events receive all the attention. Could it be that the Mayans actually had it right

Oh yes that too:

This was apparently travelling west to east, DA 14 is approaching from the south headed north.

I just can't see how you can "intercept" something that small, traveling at 10/km per second, 35 miles above the earth. No one is that prepared. Especially the Russians.

Some "experts" on ATS are just as good as any source....in fact, one could say that they ARE a source.

BTW, it is correct about the different trajectories.

Lots of reports of activity from all over the planet on :
Feb. 13th,14th and now on the15th.




www.kxl.com...

Radio station is getting many reports of Fireballs from all over the world.
This station has Great Coverage !!


Just kicking this to the back end of this thread for people just waking up.

Very curious.

Space is pretty dark, you know. Especially this close to a source of light that would saturate any other visible light from sources external to the solar system.

What do you think it should appear like?

???

Lol an expert on ATS is just someone who gets enough people to say they agree with him. If you want proof go look at all the experts in the HOAX forum.
And Again your claiming this statement is correct, please provide a source. I can't find one so i'm asking.
