One of the probably most famous and best documented meteorites of our time.
The Chelyabinsk meteorite was a meteor widely visible in Chelyabinsk Oblast around the city of Chelyabinsk in the Russian Urals on 15 February 2013 at about 9:20 a.m. local time (4:20 MEZ), after a meteoroid or small asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere.
It was the largest known meteorite (about 12 ct weight) in over 100 years. An even larger meteorite may have last penetrated the Earth's atmosphere at the Tunguska event in 1908. So far, the high number of injured persons of around 1500, most due to shattering window glass, is unique for a meteorite impact.
