Default Even Orbit@Home would not have identified this meteor.

Two links to Science News:

First a short report and video from Russia where you can watch the windows break.

And then an explaination about why this meteor was not seen before the event.
When life hands you lemons, stick in some nails and wire them up to power a DC rig!

I'm still in awe over the fact that the airburst occurred in roughly the same distance I drive to work every morning. I always figured these things happened hundreds of miles above the ground.

Yea spooky timing with DA14, can't help wonder if they shared a common event with each other, even if it was hundreds or thousands of years ago.......

Would of been scary to of been there & seen/heard it!

It looks like orbit@home may be down for a while pending funding. Strangely, it was announced yesterday (Feb. 16th).
