On Friday, terror rained from the skies, blowing out windows and scaring people over an enormous swath of Siberia. But by Monday, for many people what fell from the sky had turned to pure gold, and it touched off a rush to retrieve the fragments, many buried in deep February snows.
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.
