Scary Russian Meteor Footage

Normally my posts take a lighter tone. The serious aspect of this is that over 950 were injured in this event. Details are still coming out about how the injuries occurred (direct physical damage, indirect damage, shock wave?) so keep your eye on this story for the next few days.

The geek culture aspect of this occurrence is that we have footage of a giant flaming ball from space. I have never seen footage like this before and I am unsure if we will ever see it again in our lifetimes. let me know what you think.
