Russian Meteor - Explosion near Chelyabinsk

A surveillance camera, observing traffic in Chelyabinsk (a city of more than 1.1 million people) on 15 February 2013, recorded the moment when a meteor - passing overhead - must have exploded. 

The energy released by the event momentarily blinded the camera.

To see the event, move the video forward to 0:45.

Alexander Bulanov uploaded the video, via YouTube, for everyone to see.  Thanks, Alexander!
