When I woke up this morning and heard the news about the meteorite that hit Russia, I was kind of freaked out. Close to a 1000 people were injured and sought medical attention when a 10 ton meteorite shot across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday, sending fireballs crashing to Earth, shattering windows and damaging buildings. Take a look..

A local ministry official said such incidents were extremely rare and Friday’s events might have been linked to an asteroid the size of an Olympic swimming pool due to pass Earth at a distance of 17,100 miles. WHAT!!

Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said the meteorite was travelling at a speed of 19 miles per second and that these events were hard to predict. How scary!! The Interior Ministry said the meteorite explosion had caused a sonic boom.

There’s been some talks that one is heading to Earth today!!! There’s an astroid that’s 1/2 the size of a football field that they are watching that could come close to Earth!! Scientist say the odds of this astroid hitting Earth today are slim, but they are watching it and the President has been informed. That’s good to know…. seriously wow this is really scary. Dinosaurs were taken out from an astroid are we next!??!?!
