Are you saying all meteors are DA14?

Do you not realize there must be more than one meteor?

If there's more than one, why would the one over Russia be DA14? Why not one of the two over Florida?

And yet, you make the argument that Russia MUST have been DA14, because we were expecting a meteor that day? Well we got several, you dumb cunt, so there goes your theory. You have no proof any of them was DA14.

Lets see... am I gonna believe a random dumb cunt with no background in astronomy and no proof Russia was DA14.... or Astro, who tracked and took a picture of it...

yeah, I'm gonna go with Astro, because you're a fucking retard.

It came from the day side of earth and was considerably smaller than DA14. There was no chance to detect it and asteroids of that size can hit us at any time without warning because our detection ability is quite limited in range at that size.

Question:

NASA told everyone that the Chelyabinsk meteor had 10,000 tones:

[link to www.nydailynews.com]

The Russians said only 10 tones:

[link to rt.com]

Who is lying here?

I'm so affraid to ask "which ones are the incompetent assholes that can't differentiate a 10 tones from a 10,000 tones meteorite" beacause a 9,990 margin of error speaks "I have no f***ing clue of what I am talking about" from both sides, and this idea is to say at least, incredible terrifying.

Does anyone know the exact time between hearing the sonic boom at ground level and the entry into the atmosphere?

If so, distance of entry can be calculated.

when the distance is known, I can calculate the size based on lenses used in cameras and objects on the ground which I use as a reference.

I never thougt that the astroide which hit Russia was da14. But I strongly think that someone is playing games with us. I believe it was known that we got hit.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 Passes the Earth
Video Credit & Copyright: Daniel López (El Cielo de Canarias)

[link to apod.nasa.gov]

Explanation: There it goes. That small spot moving in front of background stars in the above video is a potentially dangerous asteroid passing above the Earth's atmosphere. This past Friday, the 50-meter wide asteroid 2012 DA14 just missed the Earth, passing not only inside the orbit of the Moon, which is unusually close for an asteroid of this size, but also inside the orbit of geosynchronous satellites. Unfortunately, asteroids this big or bigger strike the Earth every 1000 years or so. Were 2012 DA14 to have hit the Earth, it could have devastated a city-sized landscape, or stuck an ocean and raised dangerous tsunamis. Although finding and tracking potentially dangerous asteroids is a primary concern of modern astronomy, these small bodies or ice and rock are typically so dim that only a few percent of them have been found, so far. Even smaller chunks of ice and rock, like the (unrelated) spectacular meteors that streaked over Russia and California over the past few days, are even harder to find -- but pose less danger.
