Quick and dirty roundup of Russian Meteorite stories So at about 0325 UTC on February 15, there appears to have been a very large meteor event in Russia, near the town of Chelyabinsk. Videos show a massive fireball, outshining the Sun (which had not, in fact, quite risen yet). Many videos show a contrail, which is intriguingly split. Many of these videos suddenly get shaky and loud as the shock wave hits. The bangs, as Phil Plait pointed out in his post, are not of the meteorites hitting the ground, but are rather from the sonic boom of the fast-moving and exploding meteor. The shock wave is so forceful that many of the videos include the noise of shattering windows.
Here is a very quick and dirty set of links to videos and information. I can't do more tonight because it's late and I'm traveling. If you see another good video -- post a link in the comments, please!
