Russian Meteor on Video

The Russian Meteor was captured on a dash cam, of course:

A meteor streaked across the sky over Russia’s Ural Mountains this evening (NZT), causing sharp explosions and reportedly injuring around 100 people.

Fragments of the meteor fell in a thinly populated area of the Chelyabinsk region, the Emergency Ministry said in a statement.

Interior Ministry spokesman Vadim Kolesnikov said 102 people had called for medical assistance following the incident, mostly for treatment of injuries from glass broken by the explosions.

More video footage after the break:

    I loved this comment on one of the Youtube videos:
    Инопланетный корабль при заходе на посадку, увидев Челябинск, предпочел взорваться

    At least humour is universal.
