This one's just a tiny meteor, not an asteroid. It's no bigger than a Greyhound bus. Travelling 30 km/sec though....

Not quite Tunguska, but who knows... there are lots of big rocks out there.

Heh. I was particularly impressed by one of the ones the BBC was showing, where the camera is pointed down at a parking lot -- and a giant blaze of light moves across the cars, trailed by a dark shadow of the building on which the camera sits.

I actually stopped by to alert you to this remarkably awesome news in the Boston Globe. The comments are not so awesome, alas. And maybe adults will get these rights too, someday: http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/02/17/transgender/FHmjIUlSZo0LCMy02xF97M/story.html
