Marat Akhmetaleyev, 31, was at the right place at the right time. Mr Akhmetaleyev had gone out to shoot some idyllic rural scenes when the meteorite blasted into view just where his camera was pointing. This incredible picture of the Russian meteorite was taken by the professional photographer who feared it was a nuclear bomb. Despite trembling with fear, Mr Akhmetaleyev instinctively started snapping away as the space rock lit up the sky. The 100,000-tonne space rock blitzes through the air before exploding with the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs.
