This morning (I think) in Russia a much smaller meteor fell to Earth and exploded over a town causing 500 people to be injured, windows to be blown out in the town and a factory collapsed. The damaged factory was caused by once piece of the meteor. Some of the videos below are pretty incredible, and fortunately nobody has been killed by it.





Warning - Rather Loud



I'll be looking out for the big one tonight.

that's awesome bud! It's a bright sunny day here, so I might be able to see it later tonight but the weather might permit me from doing so Sad

Anyways NASA says that early simulations see that asteroid coming back in 2040ish and then maybe hitting the earth in 2080ish Shocked

I don't think the ISS has any space facing observational windows, so it's unlikely we'll see anything from them.
