    You don't think they tried to shoot it down, do you? Practice on missle defense after entering the atmosphere over Russian Air Space. They've been looking for the way to have the "least amount of human/civilian casualties" in the event of an extinction, perhaps firing on them as they enter is their only option at this time?

    IDK, but it won't be the 1st time the KeystoneCops did something like that.

    Paul Joseph Watson's report on it. So there are military sources that say the condensation trail suggests that it has been shot down.

    I don´t buy it, Chris.

    Those trails have nothing to do with it being shot down; The meteor was literally burning itself down after passing our atmosphere, so part of the trail is smoke and other part is simply condensed water particles caused by friction and temperature shock.

    I don't think it was shot down???? It would of looked quite different IMO. It would of been several chunks and had a raining effect it seems, especially being blown up about 20 miles up....

    I doubt if it was a "secret weapon" either, sheesh! it was a freaking meteor IMO!!!!

    Next thing we'll hear is that it was a UFO that Russian intelligence shot down!

    From Spaceweather.com today....

    Quote RUSSIAN METEOR INJURES HUNDREDS: Ths morning, a meteor exploded in the daytime skies above Russia. According to CNN, hundreds of people were injured, mainly from the glass fragments of windows shattered by shock waves from the explosion. It is natural to wonder if this event has any connection to today's record-setting flyby of asteroid 2012 DA14. NASA has issued the following statement:

    "The trajectory of the Russian meteorite was significantly different than the trajectory of the asteroid 2012 DA14, making it a completely unrelated object. Information is still being collected about the Russian meteorite and analysis is preliminary at this point. In videos of the meteor, it is seen to pass from left to right in front of the rising sun, which means it was traveling from north to south. Asteroid DA14's trajectory is in the opposite direction, from south to north." Stay tuned for updates!

    ASTEROID FLYBY: At 2:25 p.m. EST (19:25 UTC) on Friday, Feb. 15th, asteroid 2012 DA14 will fly past Earth only 17,200 miles above our planet's surface. This will put it well inside the orbit of geosynchronous satellites, closer than any asteroid of the same size has come since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s. Researchers speculate that Earth's gravity might even cause seismic activity on the 50m-wide space rock.

    During the hours around closest approach, the asteroid will brighten until it resembles a star of 8th magnitude. Theoretically, that’s an easy target for backyard telescopes. The problem is speed. The asteroid will be racing across the sky, moving almost a full degree (or twice the width of a full Moon) every minute. That’s going to be hard to track. Only the most experienced amateur astronomers are likely to succeed. For the rest of us, NASA will broadcast the asteroid's flyby on NASA TV.

    Asteroid 2012 DA14 is about the same size as previous asteroids responsible for the Meteor Crater in Arizona and the Tunguska Event in Siberia. Unlike those objects, however, 2012 DA14 will not hit Earth. Even if seismic activity breaks the asteroid apart, there is no danger; the fragments would continue along the same non-intersecting path as the original asteroid.

    Maybe they had changed the course of 2012 DA14 by using space-based interceptor missile earlier, now we are about to witness the debris of the impact.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Or maybe the big one has brought some smaller ones with it?

    Reports coming from Cuba, another meteorite there:

    Not sure if the sources can be trusted, a lot of confusion. Perhaps a hoax.

    Maybe more fragments coming?

    Yes, it was remote viewer Ed Dames who said it, I thought the same as you. But he said that a space shuttle or something similar would be forced down because of a meteorite shower. Wonder how ISS is doing or if some of the satellites were harmed?

    I didn't check your source for the full report (busy right now) but I would make this point: some space-rocks are extremely rich in Platinum group metals; one of these, Osmium (oxide), is extremely toxic and volatile - therefore protective suits are a wise move even if their is no radiation. I believe Ru and some other Pt metals also have toxicity issues. Hopefully no locals were poisoned.

    Edit: There is actually a layer of Iridium (or Iridium rich dirt) that is present across the whole planet that is believed to be the result of an ancient impact.

    Quote Posted by panopticon (here)
    I don't know what to make of this from RT because it's already been reported that there was no evidence of radiation:

    Quote 12:01 GMT: The site where the meteorite is believed to have fallen has been closed off by military units wearing special protective suits.

    This infor was just released from NASA:

    Quote Preliminary information indicates that the fireball in Chelyabinsk, Russia, is not related to asteroid 2012 DA14, which is flying by Earth today.

    The Russian fireball is the largest reported fireball since the 1908 Tunguska event. The fireball entered the atmosphere at 18 km per second. The impact time was 3:20:26 UTC, and the energy released by the impact was in the hundreds of kilotons. Based on the duration of the event, it was a very shallow entry. It was larger than the fireball over Indonesia on Oct. 8, 2009. Measurements are still coming in, and a more precise measure of the energy may be available later. The size of the object before hitting the atmosphere was about 15 meters, the pre-impacting asteroid was about 15 meters in diameter and had a mass of about 7,000 tons. It was about 1/4 the size of asteroid 2012 DA14. The fireball trail was visible for about 30 seconds, so it was a grazing impact through the atmosphere. The fireball was brighter than the sun.

    It is important to note that this estimate is preliminary, and some of the estimates may be revised as more data is obtained.

    Am I the only one who doesn't believe the "not related"-thing? I think that it is just a typical NASA bs-statement. They knew for sure that the small one was going to hit, but no way on Earth would they have told about it in advance and they never will.

    Default Re: The Russian Chelyabinsk Meteor of Feb 2013

    It's possible that an asteroid can be accompanied by smaller 'rocks' in a general (large) area. As the Earth moves through that band of debris, a meteorite shower can result. However, indications so far are that DA14 (which passed its closest point to Earth over Indonesia a few hours ago) was on a completely different trajectory than the Russian one.

    A few years ago, we did have a similar undetected object whiz over NZ - Australia leaving a long smoky trail visible for days - pretty spectacular but not as close as this one.

    But Starseed raises an interesting point: if NASA knew in advance of a 'relatively small impact' - like this one, would they tell us?
