See the incredible pictures and video of the meteor striking Russia earlier today

Glenn kicked off the radio show this morning talking about the news that has dominated Twitter and other social networks: A meteor strike in Russia’s Ural Mountains.

“Well, we haven’t been struck by a meteor,” Glenn said. “Got that going for us.  You know, Russia was the one that was struck by the meteor back, when was it, 1919, 1918?  And it flattened a whole area of Russia.  They were struck again by a meteor going 33,000 miles an hour, and the video of it is absolutely amazing.”

There have been some incredible photos and videos of the incident released over the internet today:

TheBlaze reported:


MOSCOW (TheBlaze/AP) — A Russian health official says nearly 1,000 people have sought help for injuries caused by a meteor that exploded in the sky, blasting out countless windows.

Chelyabinsk health chief Marina Moskvicheva, said Friday that 985 people in her city had asked for medical assistance. The Interfax news agency quoted her as saying 43 were hospitalized.

The Russian Academy of Sciences said the meteor – estimated to be about 10 tons – entered the Earth’s atmosphere going at least 54,000 kph (33,000 mph). It shattered about 30-50 kilometers (18-32 miles) above the ground, releasing several kilotons of energy above the Ural Mountains.

The European Space Agency said it was not related to the asteroid currently slated to buzz by earth about 17,000 miles away.

“Can you imagine? I really think that, you know, God doesn’t break his own rules. He operates in the system everything he can do, and I really think that, you know, when the ‑‑ you know, when there was a, you know, rain of fire from the sky, I think it was ‑‑ I think he was using it like asteroids. Can you imagine seeing that in person? And if you didn’t, if you were, you know, you were a tribal people, at some point you would think that God was coming after you,” Glenn said.

    Incredible pictures and I think God is giving the world one more wake up call to remind us of who is in ultimate charge of everything.

    So now the Democrats and their MSM lunatic followers will try to blame this meteor on global warming, the conservatives, the tea party and former President Bush…which will not shock me in the least if they try it.

    One day soon, it may be a meteor called “Wormwood”

  • landofaahs

    Perhaps it is a sign of forboding of a lofty one falling from his egotistical perch. “O”, pray tell, who could that be? ;) 

  • landofaahs

    The unbelievers don’t believe in signs.  A meteor could be called down every day from heaven seemingly out of nowhere even as scientists can’t even find them and they would still not believe.  Having eyes they see not, having ears they  hear not.

    True, those who know the danger when such a warning comes though will flee or get ready. I remember a film once in which two young men discovered the dam above the town was slowly coming undone and no one would believe them even after the heavy rains that lasted for days.

    They began to question their own assumptions and went to consult with the man who built the dam for the city; when he was done questioning him he turned to go into his house and they asked him ‘what are you doing?”

    His reply “To pack, the dam is going to go and nothing will stop that from happening.”

    The culmination point of so many things is coming to a gathering next year, and then everything will change.

    That prophecy of Revelations happened in 1986. The Ukrainian word for “wormwood” is Chornobyl.

    Siberia was hit by a much larger meteor in 1908 in Tunguska. It flattened trees for miles around the center of the blast.

    We need to come up with some business that can use the special ability of military veterans to get things done in spite of all obstacles. And I don’t mean killing people. There must be something that would be good for the nation that would need the special talents, skills and attitude of veterans.

    Wormwood sounds more like meteor than anything friend.

    I just had a scary thought what is NASA doing to find away to stop even a bigger monster from hitting us. They are to concern about Muslim outreach and dismantling our space program than preventing this from happen over a city. One rock a mile wide can not only turn a city into vapor but destroy 10 to 20 miles after that. Again what is NASA priorities?

    Yes, Sam I agree, but it is too close to Virginia where I live and there are still some good people up in the northern part of the Commonwealth.

     Actually, Paulette, it’s polyn hirkyy̆, not Chernobyl.

  • mdkrause

    I can just hear it now. Global warming was the cause of the meteor strike.

    Or this is Bushs fault or Sarah Palins fault.

    The arabs will blame this on Israel

    I will be honest with you I wish I was there in Russia to see that happen. I always wanted a piece of meteorite and to see a fire ball in the sky would have been a dream of mine. This rock didn’t kill anyone nor did it had the power to but it would have been a clear message from God saying look what I can do if you don’t follow me and I would be able to get a piece of a meteorite because I only live three and half hours away.

    It did not fall from the sky.

    Some “God” you’ve got there dude, you want him to massacre millions of innocent people so you can take care of your political problems.  Thanks for showing everyone how spirtually corrupt you are, and how your soul is infested with desire for murder and evil.

    Probably for the same lone reason he has not obliterated most of the earth; he still has his people in DC, and they are there to carry out his will and be his witness to the world in a sea of corruption.

    If DC reaches the limits of God’s patience and has to be dealt with, it shall be done.

    Really you need to put the pot down I said I wish this meteor hit Washington but never once said I wished death. Which no one died from it in fact name one person that died from that in Russia. As I went into detail why I wanted it to happen here is because it has been a dream of mine to see something like that and would have definitely seen that from here if it did happen to hit D.C. I guess liberals lose their sense of humor along with common sense. Point to one place where I wished the death of millions. I know liberals have habit of lying even tho the proof is right in front of them but that is ok keep proving that it is the liberals that are the true bigots in this country. No one was killed in this and saying that I wanted this same rock to hit D.C. if it did not kill a single soul in that town in Russia than how in the hell will the same rock kill millions? Your logic once again proves invalid weak and downright stupid. Also breaks the law of physics but that is ok keep making yourself look like a fool.

    Oh look he seeing things again I told you people critter crazy. Maybe you would not see dead people if you put the crack pipe down.

  • http://youtu.be/R7MC2wu49Cw Sam Fisher

    It is funny how liberals can’t see what I said was a joke. I guess they had to get their sense of humor removed as well as their common sense.

    Oh look now critter wants Russians dead. Why so racist to Russians critter?

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Actually I think liberals and progressives are so twisted by their own ideological madness common sense and humor have been rendered extinct to them.

    You would think with the trolls such as critten they could manage to come up with more original insults. Well, they will, as with all of us, have their day before God Himself and as Ricky Ricardo said “…you have some explaining to do…”

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    I would have loved to see the rock coming into the atmosphere, though given my luck it would have reached nearer the surface and then detonated.

    Six hundred kilotons of force – that would have been extremely bad. God watched out for the Russians and His people in the area indeed.

    Yup that could have ended a lot worse than it did but I would not mind getting a piece of the thing it most likely worth a good amount of money. If a fragment off that thing hit a car that car and meteorite could be worth millions. Some lucky people there are going to get rich. I read where one hit a car and the guy sold a 100 dollar car for 600,000 and the meteorite for I think 60,000.

    But I really doubt friend that this meteor had the power to kill. I have been their twice and once you go past the Potomac River it is very rural area and must likely would have had a better chance at hitting that than the city itself.
