RUSSIAN METEOR EXPLOSION: Today, Feb. 15th, a meteor exploded in the
daytime skies of Chelyabinsk, Russian. Shock waves from the blast
shattered windows in many buildings and sent onlookers to the hospital
with wounds from flying glass. The meteoroid entered the atmosphere
just as asteroid 2012 DA14 was approaching Earth for a record-setting
close approach later in the day. However, NASA says there is no
connection between the two: the Russian meteor and 2012 DA14 have
different trajectories. A cosmic coincidence? Visit http://spaceweather.com more information and updates.
