Meteorite-Like Fireball Explodes over Russia

Posted By on Sat, Apr 19, 2014 at 1:53 PM


The universe must have a special place in its black hole for Russia. The Daily Mirror has reported a meteorite-like flare was seen exploding in the Murmansk sky around 2:19 a.m. Saturday, April 19. The footage was caught on various vehicle dash cams, but  It's unclear if the "meteor" crashed on Earth. No injuries and damage has been reported yet, according to Russian Emergency service.

Hopefully, next year's meteorite sighting won't be anything like last year's Chelyabinsk hit.
