News just in: A meteorite strike in Russia’s Ural Mountains. Loud explosions were heard. Apparently more than 900 people have been injured…mainly from flying glass. Damage was reported from six towns.
This is what I love about the Universe. It often reminds us of how small and insignificant we really are in the vastness of Space!
BTW: A newly discovered asteroid about half the size of a football field will pass nearer to Earth than any other known object of its size tonight, giving scientists a rare opportunity for close-up observations without launching a probe. LINK
