Meteor explosion turns night into day over Siberian city

07 December
A large meteor exploded over Siberian city turning night into day on December 6, 2016.

Not as insane as Chelyabinsk, but quite a large space bolide! The meteor was seen for three or four seconds and around half a minute later there was a loud bang!

People in the Republic of Khakassia in southwest Siberia witnessed a large fireball exploding in the sky on Tuesday, turning the evening sky as bright as the day.

Some even managed to catch the event on camera.

According to witnesses, there was a sudden luminescence. It wasn’t as light as day, but still quite bright. There was a huge meteor flying above the mountain. It had a tail. Frankly, I was scared. I thought that it was a bomb. I saw that it was starting to brighten fast. The flash was really bright. It wasn’t blinding, but it was still bright. I looked up and… above the city hospital there was a meteor!
