You probably woke up this morning to the news that a meteorite exploded over Russia. No, this wasn’t the larger astroid 2012-DA14 that will pass closely by Earth later today, this was a small meteorite that exploded over the Urals region of Russia. The meteorite exploded in a spectacular fireball, but the resulting shockwave injured nearly 1,000 people and the military has found three impact craters so far. You can find more information on it at Russia Today.
As for 2012-DA14, NASA is tracking it and will provide live coverage of the transit on their site beginning around 2:24pm EST. And despite what CNN thinks, the close flyby of 2012-DA14 is not caused by global warming.
Here’s an awesome video of the meteorite exploding taken from multiple angles:
