    I hope they take this serious. It has been reported just before that rock hit Russia there was a warning. Many heard a deep booming voice and flash of light from the heavens.
    The voice said. "I just hate Communist".:eek:

    The Russians are supposedly trying to claim their automated air defense systems shot it with a missile. At 33,000mph I kinda have a hard time believing that.

    My boy and I are playing with a Russian erector set right now. Probably the same materials their air defense system is built with.

    According to the minor planet center (Camebridge) it was probably 10-20 feet in diameter and exploded high in the atmosphere.

    There's an asteroid coming close to us, my guess it it's part of that asteroids family.

    You are correct and I highly doubt it is its only sibling.

    The news (in NC) is reporting that it is NOT related to the one due to pass near us.. I find that hard to believe due to the timing?! :confused:
