On February 15, 2013 a meteor entered the atmosphere over Chelyabinsk, Russia. The asteroid was 50-60 feet across and weighed about 10,000 tons. Several pieces of the meteor and a piece of broken glass from Chelyabinsk are on display in the 3rd Floor Exhibit area. There is also a short video from various dashboard camera’s in Russia that caught the event.
