Some spectacular video of the meteor that fell over Russia early this morning.
Scientists estimate the meteor that streaked across central Russia, emitting a window-shattering shockwave before disintegrating and raining fragments to the ground below, burst into the atmosphere with the power of a small atomic bomb.
In a statement, the Russian Academy of Sciences said the meteor was likely the size of an SUV, weighed 10,000 kilograms, and streaked into the sky from space at a speed of at least 54,000 km/h releasing several kilotons of energy as it flew.
When the meteor lit up the sky in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia's Ural Mountains, 1,500 kilometres east of Moscow, its unexpected appearance struck terror into the hearts of many.
