Expert: the likelihood of re meteorite fall in the next day is great

Meteorite fall in the Urals has caused panic among the population. To learn how to relate to the divine surprise, in an interview to "Russia 24" said senior researcher Pulkovo Observatory Sergei Smirnov.

Sergei Smirnov said that meteorites are different: stone, iron, hydrocarbon and even ice (the latter often melt or in the atmosphere, or soon after the fall, so they find — a rarity). The exact composition of the present facility will be clarified after the study of the fragments.

Judging by the videos obtained from the Urals (according to Smirnov, the records are very good, because they can accurately understand the trajectory of the fall of the celestial body), there is a very bright fireball flew. Rather, it is an object with a large mass — many tens of tons. He had to give and electrophorus electromagnetic phenomena, a powerful shock wave and a large fragment distribution. By removing witnesses video astronomers refine the parameters of the object and can accurately determine the trajectory of his approach to the Earth.

According to Smirnov, the middle of February — the typical time for a "meeting" with space objects. It was at this time of the year in 1947, his famous meteor rain in the Sikhote-Alin taiga.

Eyewitnesses described a loud bang and a rain of fire. According to Sergei Smirnov, a classic pattern for such a phenomenon. Body to hit with space velocity, crushed in the atmosphere, burns and breaks into pieces that fly over a very large area.

Meteorite fragments can be large. For example, fragments of a meteorite that fell in the Sikhote-Alin, reached 2.7 tons, but there are very small particles that resemble sand. Exact data on the impact of meteorites on the radiation environment of the scientists do not.

Likelihood of a return of a meteorite in the next day, according to Sergei Smirnov, great.

Local channels are broadcast on a running line that rescuers advise citizens to remain calm and refrain from calling on mobile phone, so as not to overload the network.

In addition, the MOE encourages residents to stay at home, stock up on drinking water and food, and stay away from windows, pre-papered their scotch.
