    Interesting Post on the asteroid !

    Thank you so much for providing some sensible coverage for the asteroid. Those animated pictures of big stones shown on ABC Worldnews channel last night were very corny looking.

    Hi beejean,

    Here are are some satellite images I came across today as well:

    New report from NASA is that this meteorite was actually a tiny asteroid:

    "At a news conference Friday, NASA scientists said the object that exploded over Russia was a “tiny asteroid” that measured roughly 45 feet across, weighed about 10,000 tons and traveled about 40,000 mph.

    The object vaporized roughly 15 miles above the surface of the Earth, causing a shock wave that triggered the global network of listening devices that was established to detect nuclear test explosions."

    Hi All. Just thought some of you might like to see what an exploding asteroid and a nuclear explosion looks like on a seismograph. Take Care...Don
