Spectacular Meteor Fall in Russia

A meteor that looks like a fire ball fell in Russia at around 9:20 AM (Russia Time). There were different reports that it was a meteor shower but some says it was just a single meteor fall. The meteor was estimated to be 10 tons with a hypersonic speed of 33,000 mph.

Amateur videos of the meteor fall hit the web and it was absolutely spectacular. It was like watching special effects came to life.





It maybe a spectacular event, but it has caused nearly 1,000 injuries after the meteor landed Russia's Ural Mountains with the power of an atomic bomb. City officials also confirmed that 3,000 buildings were damaged because of the shock wave.

My prayers to Russia!
