    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.

    Thanks for the links RT. Amazing that happened at the same time as the asteroid flyby.

    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).
