First, I'd crap my pants if I saw this.

Reports are some people had to be evacuated and many lost cell service.

This article links to another article where a scientist mentions something about a major meteor passing earth on February 15th. Looks like part of it hit Russia.

As catastrophic as it is, part of me thinks it would be kind of exciting to be there when it happened.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be terrified. But still a little exciting and intrigued by it.

Crazy.

I just couldn't imagine what would happen if this occurred in NYC or somewhere.

I think it broke up and there are a bunch of small impact areas in remote areas. They said they found a piece in a lake. I dont' think you are going to see some giant crater or anything like that.

The sonic blast is what did most of the damage.

Aren't there reports that it didn't touch down and that it may have been shot out of the sky?
