    According to reports, the object was seen in Russia’s Sverdlovsk, Tyumen, Omsk, Chelyabinsk, and Kurgan regions. It is not clear whether the meteor hit the ground, as rocks as bright as this one usually explode in the atmosphere.

    A bright fireball from space was spotted illuminating the sky in several Russian regions on Thursday. The footage, taken by a witness, shows the meteor shining like a full moon or even a sun – turning the middle of the night into daytime for a few seconds.
