Well I didn’t see it. Well it was briefly in my scope but the gap in the clouds was so short that I didn’t get a chance to confirm which of the faint white dots was the one. Oh well. That’s astronomy.
But what a day. The Urals meteorite was incredible and an amazing cosmic coincidence. Really demonstrated the way the cosmos reaches out and gives us a shake sometimes. A future blog post on the full story will follow.
I was fortunate to be able to give an interview for BBC World News alongside Cosmologist Marcus Chown. Hope you enjoy it and no comments about my jumper!
