a little recap for those that dont want read a billion posts....

13 million in damage

1200 injuried..sound like mostly from glass




I wonder if their insurance will cover the damage. Is there a section for meteorite or sonic boom strikes?
This sucks for them. I hope no one got seriously hurt.
Funny (don't mean to start another conspiracy) but of all countries, communist Russia and Cuba both had exploding meteors. I'd be looking at us if I were them. Just kidding. Well, not really!

The real question is: why do the space gods keep throwing rocks at that lake?..

I agree, Russia shot nothing down. This was the shortest window of opportunity to react. The meteor entered the atmosphere at a velocity of 33,000-45,000 MPH! No one on Earth has a missile that can reach such velocity within the atmosphere, let alone be fired quick enough to hit it at an angle or head on.


It's a good bet that the USA saw it coming before the Russians did.
The USA has a space fence projected up into space.
I'm sure they have been adding to it over the years.
This asteroid probably "tripped the fence" and then we got on the phone right away.

Apparently dash cams are common there because of corrupt police, how many people do you know with a dash cams, I don't know anybody, and there are no cameras in my backyard, this was broad daylight, they must have cameras everywhere.


I have a dash cam.... a mobile on a dashstand. You forget the technology is in front of your face with simple applications not expensive ones.

Looking over the mountains of footage leads me to believe that there were two separate meteorites.
Maybe the existing meteorite was cleaved in half whilst entering the atmosphere.

Two distinct contrails, interesting.

It was explained earlier that the meteor came in from the direction of the sun and was thus undetectable due to interference caused by the sun's radiation.

I doubt we saw it until it impacted our upper atmosphere..

Can someone provide me with a link showing the diagram that has the trajectory of the meteorite and the incoming asteroid. I tried looking for the link again, to no avail. I tried looking in my web browser history and still couldn't locate it. So if someone could locate it for me that would be awesome. Sorting through 70 pages is time consuming. Thanks if you can help me.




Hopefully you see it and it doesn't get lost again in the midst of the thread.

I wonder if they have insurance?

In any case, it's winter - going to be a very cold night if you have no windows. Though my impression is that that is the reason for a lot of the 'emergency response'

After 60 some pages it sure looks like many of the comments in this thread have reduced the collective IQ of ATS by about 80 points.

Many people aren't even reading previous post, just posting their own stupid input or questions about things that have already been asked or answered.


Absolutely agree with that. By experience, it seems only 10% of ATS are truly scientifically literate. However, they do not have to be since it is a conspiracy site.

The major problems are people who jump in and do not read the majority of posts, and those that try to spread dis-information from bogus sources, or delusions that they themselves would like to perpetuate. Such is human nature, I guess.

One thing is certain, many people are "orbitally" challenged. They do not understand that these two asteroid events must be completely un-related. But you will not be able to change their minds. And that is ok as well.

The other certainty is this is one of the most fantastic days in recent space history. We should all just marvel at what nature can throw your way.

I find it amazing to see a thread get 300+ flags and 60+ pages in less than 24 hours... The story is very special by itself, but being a big ATS fan, watching a thread develop like this so fast is also unique in its own way...

Wow, amazing activity in this thread. I'm just posting to say I'm glad that thing didn't hit around my neck of the woods. Scary #!

You have a mediocre point because a UFO typically doesn't call attention to itself by displaying elongated plumes of smoke like this object did. Nor do most countries/citizens readily have dash cams like Russians seems to have.

Also....this event was ultra bright. Except for some pre-abduction cases: UFOs typically haven't been documented as having bright luminescence emissions.

So although your analogy might be considered good 'fruit'....it's still apples verses oranges

I understand but it isn't that common around here.

Thank you so much for finding that for me, I have been looking for a while now! I like how the Pacifier was making fun of me for them not being related, and it clearly states that in the Diagram I requested. Props again for finding it for me.

What makes this day fantastic is that most people have cell phones that can record
this incredible event. We got the video AND the audio! ..........BOOM!!!..........

the funny thing is I heard about this from a friend and not my girlfriend who was on the phone with her sister in uralsk Kazakhstan this morning and who mentioned nothing about it.

apparently after watching the secret the other night, my powers of positive attraction aka destroying her hometown with a meteor so she will never go back are stronger than I thought

What an amazing event!

Where are all the people now who are always saying, "Nothing's ever going to happen!"


Hopefully these people will get out of their little bubbles and start realizing that they actually don't live in a controlled environment where everything's always going to soft and fuzzy.
