Oooh, yeah, now I'm seeing the damage and injury reports -- the shockwave must have been very intense directly under the path. I'd hate to imagine the outcome if the object had been any larger...

Here's my video collection:

Trail and shockwave: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
Dashcams: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.
Traffic cams: 1, 2.
Webcams: 1.

Many windows broken and there are reports of a collapsed factory.

My first thought was DA14, but then came to realization that's impossible.

Also, if DA14 hit it would have done A LOT more damage than that.

Yes, but I hadn't read as far as how much damage was done, I check a scientific newsite everymorning and the headline was "meteorite strikes in Eastern Russia" with a huge picture under it. :P

They're too far apart and too small to be gravitationally bound, of course, but it's not entirely unthinkable that they could share a fairly recent origin. That should be easy to rule out, however, if they don't share orbits. Was today's blast even on the right side of the earth?

I hope someday I can see something like that in person. As long as no one dies from it and the damage isn't too bad I think that would be pretty incredible.

I can't find info about thet, maybe some Russian speakers can?
If it was, that may be really interesting as others may follow.

According to one story on this, 2012 DA14 is approaching earth from the south but today's blast was on the northern hemisphere.

I heard it went south-east over north, so if that cloud was aimed north or north-west, it could be. That is if what I heard is correct.

Chelyabinsk and Chebarkul lake on the Google maps (switch to the map mode):

It's seen that meteorite comes from nothern hemisphere, so it is not related with 2012da14.

The meteor trail was also photographed from space.

What?! Do you think that would remain in history like Tunguska event?
