Subject: Meteor Explodes in Daytime Skies over Russia
Space Weather News for Feb. 15, 2013
RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION: Today, Feb. 15th, a meteor exploded in the daytime skies of Chelyabinsk, Russian. Shock waves from the blast shattered windows in many buildings and sent onlookers to the hospital with wounds from flying glass. The meteoroid entered the atmosphere just as asteroid 2012 DA14 was approaching Earth for a record-setting close approach later in the day. However, NASA says there is no connection between the two: the Russian meteor and 2012 DA14 have different trajectories. A cosmic coincidence?
