#5 An up-date by the Russian Military said the claim of a missle interception was from local reporters and had no basis in fact. There are now pictures of small impact craters available.

Dear Mr. Smith,

We have recently come into possession of valuable meteor fragments, but do not have the means to move the material out of country to fetch a very lucrative return on the international market.....

Not-ET is coming, not-ET is coming!

On a serious note, the thread's Videos as per the the meteorite's awesome overhead smoke trails is a small or benign indicator of that FRIGHTENINGLY BIGGER-N-BADDER Humanity may witness in coming years + decades.
