Meteorite injures 500 in Russia today

A fireball was seen by thousands zooming across the morning sky in Russia. The meteorite hit a zinc factory and 500 people were injured by the explosion and flying glass from buildings in the town of Chelyabinsk.  Drivers caught views of the fireball on their car video cameras.  Spectacular! 

The smoke trail was then followed by the impact on the zinc factory in Chelyabinsk.
