This morning a 10-ton meteor shot into our atmosphere at about 33,000 miles per hour and broke apart at an altitude of 20-30 miles over the Ural Mountains in Russia. It left a trail of smoke and made a huge burst of light which was followed moments later by a glass-shattering sonic boom.
About 500 people have been reported injured, mostly from broken glass. Thankfully, no deaths so far.
