    You’ve probably heard by now that Chelyabinsk, Russia was hit by a meteor strike on Friday.

    Details of the incident are still emerging, but local officials are reporting that over 400 people were hurt by the incident. First and foremost, our thoughts are with the injured.

    If you’re interested in seeing what happened, the common Russian practice of running a dashboard camera means it was recorded from a multitude of angles.
