Wow that was amazing footage. Good thing for them it wasn't as big as Tunguska.

The Deceptacons are attacking!

I thought the dash cams were to record attempted police extortion/bribery.

@okham: Yeah, that's pretty much like gold falling from the sky.

There was a response from a left-wing Russian politician saying "it wasn't a meteor, it was Americans testing a new weapon" on the mirror link up there^

Hilarious.

Wow - scary. I'd probably pee a little if I saw that while driving.

It's good to know the people recording it had the presence of mind not to immediately slam on the brakes, freak out and start violently crying.

I doubt I would have been able to stay that calm.

Already saw one Russian religious person say "It's a sign from god", sigh.

But on a more serious note, I did burn my toast this morning at 6 a.m. because I was watching the videos on my phone and not watching my breakfast :'(

@j5: That too. This is a good explanation of why. Although I really don't care; the amunt of viral videos from Russia can keep me entertained for hours.

@spikedknight: You probably didn't go to church last Sunday and now you get burnt toast. Coincidence? Our God is a vengeful one! :)

Meteorites don't fall from space, meteors (meteoroids) fall from space. They must land on earth and be found before they are "meteorites"

@troutwild: At the time I that posted this, no meteorite was found. However, given the size of the event it was safe for me to assume that the meteor had impacted Earth thus making it a meteorite; which is why I put meteor(ite) in parenthesis. I was hoping to cover all bases to prevent someone from giving me a lesson in astronomy, I guess I failed myself. I'm very aware of the stages of space-rocks, and Wikipedia has explained it to me very well!

Hmmm...what a shame I didn't know there were 1100 people in Russia altogether, much less in one area. I bet the United States wishes it would have been much larger and not broke apart.
