Terrifying Russian Meteorite

Can you just imagine seeing this in person?  Reminds me of a scaled down version of the Tunguska Event from the early 20th century. 

TPM collected nine stunning videos of the blast.  Greg Mitchell has more.

Juan Cole asks what if it had been bigger and includes a simulation of the blast a six mile wide asteroid like the one thought to have wiped out the dinosaurs.  Blast equivalent?  300 million nuclear bombs.
