This was a terrible event - a force of 20 atomic bombs (as reported) is incredible! It is rather concerning that such a large piece of rock can fall from the sky totally undetected. Hopefully, somebody out there is looking for a way to figure it all out and prevent it in the future.

This does remind me of a book I am currently reading - "Comets and the Horns of Moses". Apparently, these events are not that rare in human history. In fact, our history has been largely influenced by celestial visitors. I reckon it's a must-read especially after the recent events in Russia.
