Meteorite turns night into day over Siberia

A meteorite fell in Khakassia, Siberia, in the area of the town of Sayanogorsk at 18:37 local time (14:37 Moscow time).

"A small in size space body entered dense layers of the atmosphere and burned in them. The process produced a bright flash of light in the sky over a number of regions of Siberia, including the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Khakassia," Interfax reports with reference to a source in the Russian space industry.

The meteorite burnt completely before reaching the ground. "The incident has not caused any damage to surface facilities. Local residents have not experienced any impact either," the source added.

According to eyewitnesses, the glow in the sky was so bright that night turned into day for a few seconds. The fall of the celestial body was accompanied with an explosion-like sound. Fragments of the meteorite fell in the valley not far from the town of Sayanogorsk. Specialists believe that it was a rocky meteorite, the diameter of which was not larger than 10-15 meters.
