10 Ton Meteorite Slams Into Russia Injuring Hundreds Of People [Video]

A meteorite weighing at least 10 tons before it hit Earths atmosphere slammed into the Russian countryside this morning causing at least 400 injuries and a lot of property damage.

At least one piece of the meteorite caused damage as it crashed into a wall near a zinc factory, disrupting the city’s Internet and mobile service.  Witnesses said the explosion was so loud that it seemed like an earthquake and thunder had struck at the same time, and that there were huge trails of smoke across the sky. Others reported seeing burning objects fall to earth.

Office buildings in downtown Chelyabinsk were evacuated. Injuries were reported at one of the city’s secondary schools, supposedly from smashed windows.

A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from space objects such as asteroids or comets, ranging in size from tiny to gigantic. When a meteorite falls on Earth, passing through the atmosphere causes it to heat up and emit a trail of light, forming a fireball known as a meteor, or shooting or falling star.

The craziest thing is that this meteor hit on the same day that we will have our closest call in history with a large asteroid.  A 50 Yard asteroid will pass between the earth and our navigation satellites today!

Here is some video that is alleged to be one of the pieces that fell from the Russian meteorite, but it is not confirmed.
