Massive Meteor Hits Russia

Absolutely this is not a movie. This is for real. A big burst of fire in the sky caught on video below. You probably saw it on TV today (Feb.15, 2013) and the loud thundering sound caught on smart phones, surveillance camera and because of the technology advancement that we have in this generation, spectacular and horrific sight as this one caught everyone in the world by surprise. A meteor weighing 11 tons at supersonic speed hits Russia. According to the news, the speed of the meteor is 33,000 mph and when it hit the ground, it created a 20 ft wide crater. Thank God that there was no reported casualty but, hundreds of people were injured from shattered glasses.

You probably heard that there is an asteroid called Asteriod 2012 DA14 which will make the closest recorded pass from the Earth today as well. The meteor that hits Russia has no connection according to the scientists reported on the news.
A meteoroid is a particle of debris in the Solar System. A meteor is the visible streak of light from a meteoroid which is heated as it enters the Earth's atmosphere. When I was a child, we call it shooting star or falling star. It will become a meteorite when it reaches the ground and survives impact.

Well, old folks have the hunch that this is the sign of the end of the world. If it is, what can we do? Let us continue to appreciate our time in this world by Respecting others and Let us Love One Another. Stay safe everyone!
