Just an FYI: It is somewhat common in the new Russia that everyone has a video camera in the front of their car.

This is how the recent plane crash was caught on video slamming into the expressway.  In this case a meteor.

Man that would be scary .  I can see why some thought they might be under attack.

Occasionally there will be reports of a mysterious "boom" from coastal towns and the Navy will deny that there were any planes in the area at the time that might have gone supersonic.

Wonder if a meteor like this one over the horizon could be the explanation?  Maybe these things are more common than we know.
When all else fails hug the dog.

I'm more surprised that they have sunny days in Russia.
