The Russian army found three giant holes in the earth where different
parts of the meteorite hit the ground. One crater was six metres wide.
The craters were 80 km apart. Investigators are checking the sites of
where the meteorites came down to see if they are radioactive. The
police have sealed off the areas to protect the public.

Scientists working at the site said the meteor was mostly rock and iron.
They said it is the largest meteorite to hit the Earth for over 100
years. NASA estimated that the meteor weighed around 7,000 tons and
exploded with a power around 30 times the nuclear bomb dropped on
Hiroshima in 1945.
It entered the atmosphere at 44,000 miles per hour, taking 32.5 seconds
to break up at an altitude of around 15 miles above the earth's surface.

Russian newspapers say that some people are now trying to sell rocks from the meteorite for $15 each.
