I find this a strange co-incidence that it was only 2 weeks earlier in the area nearby that UFOs were seen Smolino lake near Chelyabinsk - link to previous report. In addition the region of the Urals has been long studied by Ufologists because of the large round masses there link to report . Your comments welcome on this.
A PLUNGING meteor which exploded with a blinding flash above central Russia has set off a shockwave that shattered windows and hurt almost 1000 people in an event unprecedented in modern times.
Experts insisted the meteor's fiery entry into the atmosphere on Friday was not linked to the asteroid 2012 DA 14, which later passed about 27,700 kilometres above the Earth without incident in an unusually close approach. But the extraordinary event brought morning traffic to a sudden halt in the Urals city of Chelyabinsk as shocked drivers stopped to watch the falling meteor partially burning up in the lower atmosphere and light up the sky.
The fall of such a large meteor estimated as weighing dozens of tonnes was extremely rare, while the number of casualties as a consequence of its burning up around a heavily-inhabited area was unprecedented. Chelyabinsk regional governor Mikhail Yurevich, quoted by the RIA Novosti news agency, said 950 people were injured, with two-thirds of the injuries light wounds from glass shards and other materials blown out by the shockwave.
