Early this morning a meteorite crashed down in Russia. The crash was supposedly unrelated to the much larger meteor that was supposed to be a very close call to Earth. 2012 DA14, a 50 meter (160 foot) rock will pass just over 27,000 kilometers (17,000 miles) from the Earth’s surface. The meteorite landed in the sparsely-populated Chelyabinsk region, causing over 700 injuries due to shattered glass, mostly from the impact. It appears as though it was a single rock, but sources are conflicted on whether it was a shower or not.
