Ill go with the bit about it being intercepted by a missile ,not just russia but the usa will have been tracking it,also the shockwave is just like a blast .not getting into a scientific argument just what i think

let there b rock (i mean light)

I would be out searching for pieces that’s for sure. Even if I found a huge one it would be hard to part with. But then again it would buy a lot of flashlights.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Here's another video;

Rather small, but to me it's just incredible how bright it was.

JPL will offer live coverage of the big one’s close flyby at 17,000 miles at 11:25 a.m. PST.

Any final words in case the scientists are wrong?

Better make sure your flashlights are charged in case it impacts and creates a giant dust cloud, like the one that darkened the sun so much that all the dinosaurs kicked off.

While I can’t say what is being said that mine has been burning over there for quite a while even though it has nothing related to this incident. They did mess with the footage at the end so it looked like it blew up, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it was fake.

If they were trying to say that the burning pit was the result of the meteor, well then yeah that didn’t happen. Nor did it get blown up overhead, footage from multiple sources verifies this.

Ehh I’m not concerned, even in the case of a catastrophic disaster I think with enough innovation we could get through it. Oil will last for a while and hydrogen a bit longer but eventually we would have to do something extreme. Even if we have to live off of nuclear reactors for a few generations and put the waste somewhere else.

It’s still cool that we understand more about these things then we have anytime in the past, but it comes with the reality that there is still a bunch of stuff that we have absolutely no clue about. No one has ever seen a meteor before impact up close and we don’t really know where or how they end up how they do.

That object was approximately 1m wide. You cannot track an object of that size. And intercept it at 30km/s :bigsmile: ?

Guys the meteor blew up in the air due to atmospheric pressure since it was travelling so fast. Nobody shot anything at this meteor since they couldn’t detect it.

Yep, I was simply repeating what had been said. I agree though.

I figured that, scaru. Didn’t mean to sound critical.

The fact that it was reported to have been struck by a missile is newsworthy, whether it actually happened or not.

The REAL truth: Someone on the internet from Africa commented that NASA reactivated an SR-71 with linear aerospike (after being retrofitted with a special titanium nose cone with depleted uranium tip) to intercept the meteor. The tip was used as a giant ice pick to break up the meteor while in flight before entering the troposphere. The sonic boom was actually caused by the blackbird in supersonic flight, followed by a loud crash as the spike pierced the meteor, smashing it into dust. The mission was a complete success and the meteorite fragments are already for sale on ebay to the highest bidder. The staff at Wallbuys are already digging up common rocks from the ground to sell as counterfeit meteorite fragments during their next big sale. Potential buyers are urged to place their orders early through the special reservation service to assure that they will get one. Limit: 500,000 metric tons per customer.

It’s actually very common in Russia due to the number of people who fake accidents to claim compensation. Anybody with a half way decent car is a target so they just fit a dash cam to use as evidence. Have a look on YouTube and there are thousands of dash cam accident clips and the like.

Don’t be a chump, be a chimp!

Just in case people are confusing the two and their sizes… the one that streaked over Russia yesterday and apparently impacted. That was estimated by NASA to be 15m in diameter (I think this may be high). The shockwave was caused by it exploding in the atmosphere due to extreme heating (you can see the exact moment in the video, it gets really bright). That shockwave was from a 1-2m object.

DA14 is estimated at 50m in diameter and would have been a very bad deal if it had impacted Earth. To put things in perspective, it’s estimated that Meteor Crater in Arizona was the result of a 50m impact.

Welcome the night.

Staff at Home Depot have quickly retrieved all their hidden ‘Defiant Tactical Super Throwers’ for clearance sales to make space for boxes of space rocks hidden on the top shelves which are to be released only in a future promotion!

They will sell them to you if they find them though, just ask for Sku 666666.
