Meteor hitting Russia captured in two insanely dramatic videos

In case you’ve been living under a rock (perhaps one flying through space and on track to hit Earth), a meteor touched down in Russia last night. Two videos capture the beauty and the horror of the experience.

In this first one, a Russian dashboard camera captures the meteor majestically soaring through the sky before it hits soil. It would belong a more artistic alien invasion movie.

In this second clip, you can hear the meteor smashing into the ground violently, courtesy of a shaky cell phone camera of moderate quality. This would be the pants sh-tting Cloverfield-inspired alien invasion movie.

According to reports, around 500 people were injured by the blasts outside of Russia’s Ural Mountains.
