So any further info, pictures, or video on where the meteorite ended up or above where it blew up??

Ps, I'm somewhat aware of how sonic booms work, but why were there so many, and like almost a minute or two after the meteorite was captured passing over the sky and exits the field of view..?


No but Russian Military sources are saying they have found an impact crater with a diameter of 6 metres (around 20 feet). Big hole for a tiny meteorite. Certainly helps to concentrate minds on the threat from space though. I forecast months of weird and wacky ideas from the scientific grey beard community now on how to avoid similar tragedies.

I vote for a fold up, extendable giant tennis racket we can swat them away with.


And you want to know the scariest thing about this all?

This 'meteorite' was completely undetected beforehand, and was a surprise to the scientific/astronomy community.

I think what our drunk alien friend is trying to say is that a very fast moving object in an atmosphere creates very little turbulence. The flows around it in a laminar way which means that a very fast moving object can not have two smoke trails. They dynamics of the air flow would force the smoke from multiple sources into one cohesive trail.

I think he is saying that those images are of something travelling much slower and can therefore not be a meteor as reported.

I noticed that Russian defence reported intercepting the object with a missile barrage and then retracted this report a few hours after.

Remember that ballistic missile defence systems are largely automatic because of the rapid response times necessary for successful interception using conventional rockets.

It would not surprise me at all if this was taken out by an automated defence system and the government is denying all knowledge because of the civilian damage done by the debris.

WHo watched last nigh CNN, where were Anderson Cooper, Pierce Morgan and Quest? all 3 missing in program and replacement there? Strange coincidence or?


If my only chance of survival was to hold up in a DUMB with both Piers Morgan and Anderson Cooper, no thanks, Ill take my chances on the surface.

Now how does it form two trails of clouds?
I used to Bar Tend, I can Speak Drunk.

Two cars go along a Highway on a Cold Day leave 2 smoke (emission) Trails.

Two Meteors come through the Atmosphere leave 2 smoke (burnup) Trails.

The meteor over the Urals was a fragment from asteroid 2012 DA14.

The fragment was ejected forward (hence got here first) after the successful mission on the 28th Jan to adjust 2012 DA14's Earth bound trajectory.

Further larger fragments that are following behind 2012 DA14 will hit the Pacific ocean and North American continent over the next 3 days. No major damage expected, so don't panic.


You do realize that your physics for this is very wrong?

That 2012 DA14 and this 10 ton rock were from different directions?

That when nothing else hits us over the next few days, that you're going to be flamed to death here on ATS?

This really makes me wonder just how many meteorites are missed that could impact earth. It also makes me wonder if they know about an imminent collision and are not telling us about it. I suppose it might be best to not inform the public as panic would ensue. Still.

Or ancient and modern EA*RTH/space/ Moon or Other rail/laser based energy disposition weapons. To deflect and or destroy.

NAMASTE*******

This is supposed to be the 6m crater which spoken of:

And earlier in this thread you'll find pictures of the zinc factory that was also hit...
Another part dropped in a lake, of the others hits I have no info.

Lol i dont think anyone would panic.
Just an epic flame war would take place on ATS.

You're saying that two meteors entered the atmosphere at the same time?

Because I dont have time to read 40 pages, how in the heck did the US or Russia not detect this before it happened?
Or did they and not say anything?

South to North.

And just in case you wondered, DA14 is tracking East to West, so if they are related then we are heading for one huge asteroid field! (wouldn't worry, a field that large would be spotted from Earth). Also, aside from differing directions, DA14 is due 12 hours later - again, if they were related then that would be an absolutely immense asteroid field (think of the distances involved).


I think you may have that backwards. And evidentally my guesstimate was off too. According to Dr. Robert Massey, of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Russian object was traveling east to west, while DA14 will be traveling north to south.

Thank you sir!!!

First for not posting a pic of Hells gate as that has been thrown around on here enough
. (almost didnt click it)

And for actually posting whats seem to be a pic of the actual impact.

Well we'll see what happens today. If they strike sucks to be you.

This is very serious

Do you really think "they" would tell us if we were about to go through an asteroid debris field that could potentially cause damage all around the globe? (you dont have to answer)


I will anyway though!


I honestly do not see how it could be kept quiet. More of the immediate night sky is observed these days by amateur astronomers than by any government agencies. In every nation on the planet too, so word would leak out.

In my opinion, the only ones that they may be able to conceal would be this type - the small ones that are incredibly difficult to observe until they are right on top of us. And, to be honest, in such cases, what is the point of a warning? It would be too late to make any difference.

I'm thinking it would be damn near impossible for any missile defense system to intercept something travelling 33,000 mph.... Since most 'missile defense systems' are designed to intercept ICBM's, and the fastest 'missile' known to man, is probably the LGM-30G Minuteman III, which has a terminal phase velocity of around 15,000 mph... Close to half the speed the Russian meteorite was travelling.

Wouldn't happen.
