Some photos from Chelyabinsk:
My Dad has lived in Chelyabinsk for 24 years, he says this building is really old, so no surprises it got destroyed by the sonic boom.
I personally was sleeping and didn't witness the event, but my Dad did. He was driving in his car when he suddenly saw a meteorite approaching the Earth. It looked like the meteorite was going to hit the road right in front of him, so Dad immediately pushed the brakes. When the meteorite exploded and there was no sound of it, he understood that it was far, far away. Indeed, the meteorite was 300 kilometers away.
