On the chilly morning of February 15, 2013 at 9:22 as people made their way to work, several dashboard and building ccd cameras recorded a streak across the sky that was brighter than the sun at that time. As the people came out to witness this spectacle, several minutes later, the air blast caught up with the light phenomena, and shattered windows and collapsed a building. Up to 1200 people were hurt, but no one was killed. This was the largest meteorite fall in several decades, especially over a populated area. Tonight, we will discuss the specific circumstances of the fall, the science that was learned, and its impact on both the local population and the world. There will be specimens that were used for the presentation available for inspection.
