FE­BRU­ARY: Me­teor en­counter in Rus­sia

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WORLD -

A plung­ing me­teor ex­ploded with a blind­ing flash above cen­tral Rus­sia, sow­ing panic as the hurtling space de­bris set off a shock­wave that smashed win­dows and hurt over 500 peo­ple. The ex­tra­or­di­nary event on Feb 15 brought morn­ing traf­fic to a sud­den halt in the Urals city of Chelyabinsk as shocked driv­ers stopped to watch the fall­ing me­teor par­tially burn­ing up in the lower at­mos­phere and light­ing up the sky.
