I was searching the interwebs just now trying to find out when South Africans can expect to see the massive asteroid DA14 pass by earth this evening when i stumbled across this amateur footage of a meteor streaking across the Russian sky and exploding this morning injuring hundreds. Captured on a car dashboard camera the footage shows the meteor dramatically light up the sky.
According to Russian news reports..the meteor injured 102 people and caused the roof of massive factory to collapse.

Incidently the massive asteroid passing earth this evening will be visible from South Africa from 7pm onwards.
