A meteor's vapor trail above the city of Chelyabinsk, Russia, on Friday.
Last night a large meteor exploded in the sky over the Western Russian city of Chelyabinsk. The event was captured by people with cell phones and dashboard cams:
The like something out of War of the Worlds, there's a big streak across the sky, a bright light and then:
A sonic boom, car alarms and a lot of broken glass.
Here to talk about the event is Bruce Betts, director of projects at the planetary society here in Pasadena.
