Russian Meteor

The good thing about dash board cameras is they are always on. This compilation from various dashboard cameras in Russian cities show the impact of the meteor as it hits. The first 30 seconds is crazy. The remaining time is devoted to being blinded by the repeated impacts.

Wow!
But I must say, I don't care for their musical preferences..

In other news, Russians listen to some really bad music.

Melissa said...

Haha, jinx :D

That was far out!

Holy crap. So as to the way they travel through the sky stuff like Armageddon wasn't that far off?

So scary, but exciting at the same time!

Amber said...

Aww man. I was hoping I'd see the actual impact!

(Greetings! Random commenter/daily reader here.) It is kind of eerie that the in the secrets that the Lady of Fatima gave the three Portuguese children, she spoke about Russia needing to be spiritually saved. It is also widely thought that something significant would occur when the second Pope after PJP2 took post. After seeing the photo of lightning striking the basilica at the Vatican on the day the Pope resigned, and now this, I have to say I'm praying a little harder and reflecting on my life a little longer. Anyway, I'm not a religious fanatic (I consider myself culturally Catholic, but universally spiritual), but thought these coincidences to be Intersting and thought I would share. Good day to all! :)

@By: Elsa - can you link to that somewhere?? That does sound interesting.

SingBlue said...

@By: Elsa - I recall the then Pope refused to reveal the contents of the letter (?) but did stress it wasn't another world war... (again, ?)

However, the second Pope after PJP2 is soon to be elected, and maybe it's time to go all Golden Child and have a 10 year old Pope?

Wow holy crap that must have been terrifying. Russian dash cams are really a gift to us all.

The guy driving that car is lucky he didn't crash.

Sing Blue & Amber here's a link to someone who has done extensive research, wrote a book about his findings, and even has made it accessible for free online. http://www.secretstillhidden.com/book.html#overview

I haven't read it, just browsed, but other sites, including Wikipedia (my graduate professors would be ashamed of me for siting that) reference him and the findings.

There is a popular belief that the Pope has not disclosed the real secret that Lucia (the last surviving of the three children) revealed on her death bed. Very interesting stuff if you start digging through it.

And yes! I vote for a 10 year old Pope. I say this half joking/half honest: at last a child Pope won't allow for child molestation of other children (I believe that has been the most dark era of the Catholic Church (which the Fatima secret also talks about evil infiltrating the church.... This is even darker than the inquisition.)

*citing (they would also be ashamed of me not knowing how to spell... Darn auto-correct!)

nova said...

Your graduate professors would probably be ashamed of a lot more than a wiki cite (unless you're getting a Masters of Magical Thinking or something)

Carolyn said...

This is so fascinating! And a little scary.

g.strathmore said...

@Melissa, Ha!

mngddess said...

Is it me or is no one reacting to these meteors? I would have pulled over and run screaming from my car!

By: Elsa said...

I thought the same thing.

By: Elsa said...

Ha!

SusanB said...

I would have thought we were being nuked.

And in the USA, other than cops, who has dashboard cams? I'm always amazed at how many the Russians seem to have. Or are they all cop cams?

camembert said...

@Elsa, Our Lady of Fatima talked about Russia needing to be saved because it was going through a revolution at that moment (1917). I highly doubt it was referring to a future asteroid event.

zerok555 said...

Dashboard cams are common in Russia due to high levels of corruption in the police so video evidence is very important should anything go to court.

@Elsa the Vatican is hit by lighting on a very regular basis, it means nothing.

I've got my purple tennis shoes and shroud on. I'm ready to be transported into space & the next plane of existence. Bring it on.

mell61 said...

I love teh indifference to the drivers to the incoming meteors, in every disaster movie mobs stare at the sky, the driver here barely brake for what looks like immediate impact!

Jazzy said...

Yes! That's what I was saying! That scared the sh*t outta me.

feraltart said...

I too love the non-reaction from Russians. They will handle the zombie apocalypse really well.

Kloie said...

Xenu take the wheel...

By: Elsa said...

I sure hope so!

phoenix said...

Amazing. Thx for posting.

By: Elsa said...

Oh, ok- makes all this less eerie. It's just any time you see signs from the sky (especially when referenced in prophecies) it freaks me out. : \

Around 41 seconds mark, I couldn't figure out why the driver wasn't yelling "Shit! Shit! Shit!!!" but in Russian. говно???
