  • The Feb. 15 (Feb. 14 in the U.S.) Russian meteor explosion — About 16 hours before Asteroid 2012 DA14 was expected to pass within 17,200 miles of the Earth’s surface, a previously unknown smaller asteroid entered the atmosphere (from an entirely different orbit in relation to DA14) and exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, causing damage to buildings and injuring up to 1,000 people, according to some reports. Oddly enough, Russian Machine Never Breaks, a blog that covers the Washington Capitals National Hockey League team, was one of the first U.S. sites to post updates and videos from the scene because Capitals prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov plays for a team in Chelyabinsk and one of the site’s correspondents there began sending reports almost immediately. For more photos and videos of the Russian meteor, and a link to an infographic explaining the differences among meteoroids, asteroids, meteors and meteorites, continue reading after the jump.
