…a very big meteor burned up over Chelyabinsk, a city in Russia just east of the Ural mountains, and about 1500 kilometers east of Moscow. The fireball was incredibly bright, rivaling the Sun! There was a pretty big sonic boom from the fireball, which set off car alarms and shattered windows.
Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog continues to update with videos and photos as more information is revealed (and corrected). In the incredibly clear video above, you can see the meteor as it was recorded on February 15, 2013 by a dashboard camera.

I heard on the radio that it was 10 tons when it entered the atmosphere. Also 138 people were injured, and it killed several dinosaurs still living in and around Chelyabinsk.
