Chelyabinsk meteorite in Russia. February 15 Friday meteorite streaking across Chelyabinsk sky before exploding in a fireball, was brighter than the sun. Chelyabinsk school teacher describes an fantastic light that lit up all the classrooms. "Such kind of light doesn’t happen in life, only at the end of the world – then a trail appeared like from a plane but only ten times bigger". Chelyabinsk residents thought the world was ending. The terrifying sight caught people heading to work yesterday. Thanks God, there were no fatalities and most of the wounded were hurt by flying glass. The opinions on Russian net differ, some thought it was UFO, some share opinion of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, Russian LDPR leader, who traditionally blames the USA: "It’s not meteors falling. It’s the test of a new weapon by the Americans". Some mentioned Super hero or Bruce Willis, who do not cope with their official duties, and it's time for them to retire.
