If you haven't already, go to YouTube, or your favourite news site, and check out footage of today's meteor incidence in Russia. It's amazing to see one so visible during the day. And the sonic booms are loud even if you're just listening via your computer.
As we get more information about this we're also likely to see a bunch of nonsense as well. Some will claim that it wasn't actually a meteor, but some sort of weapon. Others will claim it was an alien spacecraft, or a sign of some horrible thing that will soon come out of the sky and kill us all. The fact we're about to have a very close visit by an asteroid will help drive certain theories, although scientists say the two have nothing to do with each other. And no doubt some religious fanatic will claim it's a warning from God about Russia not doing something, or doing something.
