2013 Feb15-The Chelyabinsk meteor entered Earth's atmosphere over Russia on 15 February 2013 at about 09:20 YEKT (03:20 UTC), with a speed of 19.16 +/- 0.15 kilometres per second (60,000[5] - 69,000 km/h or 40,000[5] - 42,900 mph).[6][7] It quickly became a brilliant superbolide meteor over the southern Ural region. Light from the meteor was brighter than the Sun. It was observed over a wide area of the region and neighbouring republics. Eyewitnesses felt intense heat from the…

A meteoroid fell to Earth on February 15, streaking some 20 to 30 kilometers above the city of Chelyabinsk, Russia at 9:20am local time. Initially traveling at about 20 kilometers per second, its explosive deceleration after impact with the lower atmosphere created a flash brighter than the Sun.
