It’s not every day you wake up to the news that the Earth has bit hit by a meteor, but just because we’re not all dead, doesn’t mean it wasn’t a big deal.
Rather, it was a small town in Russia that got hit, and over 500 people are injured, mostly through shattered glass and debris as a meteor buzzed by them, breaking the sound barrier.
The video footage of the event is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen. We’re used to seeing stuff like this in Michael Bay movies, but to see it in real life? It’s simply astonishing. The video above is a compilation of footage from a few sources. Hope everyone over there makes a quick recovery. I also hope they find a spaceship in the crater, but that seems less likely.
