Best of the Russian Meteor Strike

Here is a round up of some of the best footage from the meteor explosion. From what I’ve heard so far no one was seriously injured thankfully but this was pretty darn cool!






[EDIT:] So I found out this weekend that this video below was not a result of the meteorite that landed in Russia. I’ll be the first to admit that I was too eager to post this video because of how cool it is but just so we are all clear this did NOT happen as a result of the happenings in Russia. For those of you who are curious. This is actually a natural gas fire lit in hopes to burn off and clear the well but it has been going for over 40 years named “The Door To Hell” because of its appearance and the fact that it gives off a sulfuric smell for miles around. Here is some more information for you at Wikipedia.
