Massive Meteor Explosion over Russia

The Guardian has pictures of a meteor explosion over the city of Chelyabinsk. The meteor was estimated to mass 10 tons, and the resulting explosion shattered windows, damaged roofs and injured an estimated 500 people.

Here’s a video from an on-board car camera catching part of the explosion and the resulting dust cloud:

Very cool, but also very frightening. Thankfully there are no results of deaths, although it looks like many people were injured by falling debris and shattering glass.
