Not by a long shot. This is obviously some of Dick Cheney's doings; because he missed his real target: North Korea.

What strikes me is the number of videos and pictures posted, and this was no major metropolitan area.

What it is about eastern Russia and meteors? That huge one struck there early in the 20th century. If it was God, why didn't it hit San Francisco?

I need one of those to land in my back yard...just one worth $100 k would do for now.

''At about 09:30 local time, a large meteor exploded in the skies over Chelyabinsk, a city in Russia just east of the Ural mountains, and about 1,500 kilometers east of Moscow. The fireball was incredibly bright, rivaling the Sun!..............''


These guys are hoping to get one.........http://www.planetaryresources.com/

Oh, not at all. That's fun and I have. Just calls into question those folks who catch UFO's hovering over their barn while no one else ever seems to. This was what? A 30 second window and it's caught on numerous dashcams and phones.
