Wow, this is an incredible sight. More than one thousand people were hurt when a meteor exploded over central Russia. You'll want to watch this video from CNN.
If you recall, one of the biggest explosion in recent memory was the 1908 Tunguska impact that leveled 80 square miles of Siberia. Meanwhile, a near-earth asteroid will be making its closest pass to Earth around 11:24 PST.
And yes, folks, this meteror was a itty-bitty tiny one. This second video here offer more dramatic views of the impact. Hollywood ain't got nothing on the real thing.
