Glowing Meteor Soars Across Russian Sky

MURMANSK, Russia (UPI) — When you’re the largest country in the world — at more than 6.5 million square miles — the probability of meteors exploding atop your horizon increases. At least that seems to be the case for Russia, whose skies have hosted two burning meteors in the last two years.

Over the weekend, Russian dash cams — yet again — caught the bright, flashing streak of a meteor burning up in its atmosphere. Seen by dozens of night owls at 2 a.m. in the northern Russian city of Murmansk, the meteor left a bright blue trail across the night sky before exploding in midair.

According to Russia Today, emergency authorities in Murmansk have confirmed that no injuries were reported as a result of the apparent meteor flash.

That wasn’t the case last year for residents of the Ural city of Chelyabinks, in the south of Russian, where a meteor exploded in the morning sky creating a sonic boom that blasted out windows and sent more than 100 people to the hospital.
