As many of your remember February 15th, 2013, when Russian Ural region & it’s major city of Chelyabinsk was struck hard by a large meteor. The residual effects of this incident, like the broken glass by explosions, meteor shards & sound created a disaster for many residents. Dashboards cameras, cellphone video taping, and other devices captured different views of the unbelievable galactic collision. Of course, as bad it is to know that over a thousand of our friends in Russia were badly affected by this incident, one can’t help but to count one’s blessings & be thankful that as the large as the rock was, it wasn’t an ELE. Especially that this meteor originally started as an asteroid.I’ve taken a little bit of time to post some of the incredible power shots of this incident as the better ones emerged over time. This article is composed entirely of GIFS, otherwise known as the animated images… Besides listing the 4 most incredible meteor sightings over the Russian Chelyabinsk area, I’ve also taken liberty of adding one additional sighting over South Africa. Due to the gravity of that image, it deserves an inclusion. Enjoy the read.
#4 Mountain Flying Over The Mountains
This is a shocking image because due to the explosive light obstruction, the direction of travel was temporary obscured, it seemed like it might be coming at them briefly… The speed of this thing is incredible. From a spec to a flying mountain.
#3 Morning Light
Southern Ural residents are used to greeting the morning light just like anyone else, but this wasn’t the usual situation. The light must stay in the sky.
#2 Tunnel Vision
I made this GIF myself from a longer public youtube video.
Okay, this article is mostly about the Russian meteor of 2013. I couldn’t help but to insert this because of the gravity of this meteor’s landing sighting. According to the source, this took place in South Africa… (Confirm of locale needed.)
#1 Follow The Dragon
Only the most hardcore investigator at heart will follow such an event. However, now we have one of the most incredible views of the spectacle.
