Local expert on meteors in Russia
Wayne Wyrick from the Science Museum Oklahoma’s Planetarium talked with us about how this happens and if there is anything we can do to stop it.
Russia has been hit with 10-ton meteor-causing sharp explosions injuring more than 1,000 people, several hundred have been hospitalized.
The powerful blasts rocked the Urals region of Russia early Friday morning causing damage to several buildings.
Bright objects and plumes of smoke were seen in the sky for more than 125 miles.
It is believed the plumes were caused by meteorites.
The falling object created a large shockwave, shattering windows throughout the region and even causing damage to building structures.
