Not every day you can see a video of this!

Hope there are some guys with detectors over there that can make some money off of it.

It's got to be one of the better witnessed falls with lots of video and one of the largest in recent history. 1200 or more injuries, fortunately mostly minor and some structure damage, but it sure could have been far worse.

I guess we should feel truly lucky the big one the following day stayed out in space. The Earth is way past due for a major meteor strike, cosmologically speaking.
