I just came across a wonderful collection of videos and photographs on one website of, what I have dubbed the “Chelyabinsk Event”, the meteorite explosion in the stratosphere over Russia's city of Chelyabinsk near the Ural Mountains which detonated with the power of several atomic bombs and injured about 1,100 people yesterday Friday February 15th, 2013.

This collection was compiled by Alexander Zaytsev who happens to live three hundred kilometers from the city of Chelyabinsk where a meteorite exploded yesterday.
This is a site I highly recommend if you want easy access to photographs and videos of the “Chelyabinsk Event” of February 15th, 2013.
