2013-Feb-15 Russian Meteor - YouTube video list.

A 10 000 ton meteor, with a 17 metre diameter (approx 4 ton per cubic metre), slammed into the atmosphere over Russia at 18 km/sec, burning up some 20 to 30 km above ground.

YouTube has many videos of the event.

For those with the trail seen low in the sky, the event was happening nearly 200 km away.

Most of the world's media is reporting this as a "10 ton meteor".

No! This was a 10 000 ton object!

I have mostly avoided compilation videos, news reports and videos that purely show the damage seen afterwards, and also avoided several obvious fakes. Some videos have been reposted by many people. I have tried to avoid duplication, but probably missed editing out a few from the list.

At 17 metres across and 10 000 tons, I'm not sure it's accurate to call this object a meteoroid and hence lead to a meteor strike. Is it big enough to be called an asteroid? Sure, the small bits found on the ground are still called meteorites.

I'm not sure it's accurate to call this object a meteoroid

Quick detour to assorted .edu sites tells me the English-usage folks are at variance with the astronomy folks.

On the usage side, it's based purely on location:
A chunk of rock out in space is a “meteoroid.” If it plummets down through the earth’s atmosphere, the resulting streak of light is called a “meteor.” And if it lands on the ground, the chunk of stone is called a “meteorite.”


On the other side I found one (from the National Academic Press, which in spite of its name doesn't know how to make pdfs) that put the size range for meteoroids at "1 micron to 10 cm". Harvard otoh begins-- or at least began, back in 1995-- with the "location" aspect* but goes on-- or went on-- to say that the size range is 100 microns (assuming that's what "mu m" means) to 10m. And wustl fills the gap by setting the range at 10 microns to 1m.

:: sigh ::

But at >10m we're beyond all cutoffs. So if only they'd drop a hint what it is when it isn't a meteoroid...

An asteroid that decided it would rather die than spend the rest of its life stuck between Mars and Jupiter? A planetoid that was getting cold in the Kuiper belt but miscalculated when it came time to relocate?


* "One can, for example, 'see' a meteor, but not a meteoroid (unless one were an astronaut who was unlucky enough to have a very close encounter with such a body)."

Yeah, I tend to agree.

2012 DA 14 is certainly an asteroid. That's the one that missed us by ~25 000 km. It's about 50 metres across and 150 000 tons. It was an "Apollo" class object, but it's now an "Aten" class, as the Earth's gravity modified the asteroids orbit.

The Russian object was one-third of that diameter, i.e. about 17 metres diameter, and 10 000 tons. This was a "small asteroid".

Some UK newspapers are calling it a meteor shower. It certainly wasn't that; only one object entered the atmosphere.

Most of the world's media are saying the Russian object was 10 tons. It was 10 000 tons.

I have tagged some of the videos as "end point". In those you're looking back up the 100+ km long "tube" from a point close to the impact point of whatever survived the fiery passage through the atmosphere. I'm guessing that most of the people that took the pictures are blissfully unaware they were the target of the rock travelling directly at them at 18 km/sec.

Not all asteroids are in the asteroid belt. A great many have been nudged into other orbits over the years. A few thousand come near the Earth's orbit at some point in their own orbit. That's only a problem if the Earth is in the same place as the asteroid when the asteroid intersects the Earth's orbit.

Do any of those quoted sources explain why the contrail has such a distinctive shape? It's like a, uhm, quadruple helix ;)

I'm guessing you're looking at a whole new branch of science (or maths!) with that question. :) There's a lot of interesting detail in that trail.

Seems like every Russian has a video camera and isn't afraid to use it. I think this thing has been covered from (almost) every angle.

USGS finally updated the related Earthquake data. [earthquake.usgs.gov...]
You won't see many earthquakes reported as 0.0km depth!

Some of the videos are from car cameras. Unfortunately some of them had their radios running or music playing which means for me:

"Unfortunately, this SME-music-content is not available in Germany because GEMA has not granted the respective music publishing rights."

Hopefully, there's enough without music to find some good ones in there. Yeah, it's mostly car radios and background stuff - only a small number have had music added on later.

For me, the best ones are those with no background clutter where you get to directly hear the enormous noise TEN THOUSAND TONS of rock makes as it slams into the atmosphere at 18km/sec - and you're hearing this from some 25 to 50 km away!

I saw one back in the mid 90's but certainly not as spectacular as this and no sonic boom, still very impressive. If I recall it landed on some guys house in NY state and was about the size of a basketball. We were far from where it was at, it kind of streaked across the horizon and then went behind the tree line. It was really similar to the Russian videos in that it started out small and then got really big and bright. It looked so close you were almost expecting to hear a crash. This was at night. It was a gaped mouth "did you just see what I just saw" moment, we were actually wondering if it might have been a plane or something like a satellite. Wasn't until the next day it was reported in the news we found out what it was.

It seems that videos with a large initial number of views are promoted and the rest are demoted. Unless a video has large number of views right at the beginning, it will never gain traction.
