I wonder what other countries saw the meteorite.
I mean, the boom was heard and it was seen in Russia, but that ****** kept going. Perhaps the rest of it just kept going in whatever direction. Like, was it going south so our military in Iraq could see it? did burnt fragments of the rock rocket over Germany? or did people in northern China catch a glimpse of it?
