Maybe it's a bit far fetched, but it looks like there's something mysteriously appearing out of nowhere from behind and flies into the meteorite on
the exact same moment it explodes. Can somebody shed some light on this?

Maybe the Russians automated missile defense system shot at the meteor. If it did, they got a pretty good system. Looks like it comes at it
from the back. It could be a smaller piece of meteor that isn't slowed down from the friction of the air that comes from behind and runs into it
also, causing it to explode.
Good video, someone is observant.

Maybe it was just a mark on the car window that caught up with the image of the meteorite being filmed through the window, then appeared to vanish as
the car turned and reflected the sun's light differently.
A fragment coming off of it would not fly right back into it. A fragment coming off would lose more off its momentum and just fly off behind it. Funny
how little understanding of physics people have when that same concept applies to allot of things in everyday life. If you throw a piece of gum out of
your car window its does not fly fly back at your car does it?
It's a new cold war, The asteroid race. we have gone from nukes to throwing stones at each other again
On a serious note, it looks to me as the the asteroid possibly starts to hit the breaks because of air pressure or something and the back of it starts
to fly forward infront of the front of it. like a person going over the handle bars of a bike, but as you can tell Im no physasist.
I can explain this one easily enough. What happened was a piece of it broke away and because it was a small piece it flew backwards due to the main
body moving at such velocity. It spun away and then continued to fall in a similar direction gaining speed as it did so. It might have even hit the
main body causung more damage hence the explosion effect.

Has the speed of that meteor been determined? And if so, what would the speed of that smaller object gaining on it have to be? Could a interceptor
man-made reach the speed needed to hit the meteor?
According to an article I read this morning on Yahoo News, NASA upped their first estimates of what the stats on the thing were.
They said that it was traveling at over 40000 MPH when it hit the atmosphere.
Also, the day of the incident a lot of sources from the Russian military were claiming that they shot it down with their batteries.
OK so my next question would be how much speed was lost on entry, 40,000mph to what? And is there any validity to the Russian claim of hitting
something traveling at that speed from behind like it appears in the video? What do they have that could accomplish this?
Dont know,about reflections,windshields of the car,or any other source,looks legit to me ,and i dare to think,that the meteorite,was gonna have a
devastated effect on the region,if the speed of impact wasnt altered by that object.Maybe part of Russia will face destruction,that rock was no childs
