The most breathtaking pictures yet of Russian meteorite

Posted on February 26, 2013 by Jean

The most breathtaking pictures yet of Russian meteorite:
Photographer captured exploding space rock on camera… despite thinking
it was nuclear bomb that would kill him

A professional photographer today told of the moment he feared a
nuclear bomb had gone off when the Russian meteorite tore through the
sky as he took pictures of an idyllic rural scene.

Marat Akhmetaleyev, 31, had just set up his tripod when the space
rock lit up the crisp, morning sky almost where his camera was pointing.

Despite trembling with shock, he instinctively started to snap away.

Atomic angst: This incredible picture o0f the Russian meteorite was
taken by professional photographer Marat Akhmetaleyev who feared it was a
nuclear bomb

Shocking: Despite trembling with fear, Mr Akhmetaleyev instinctively started snapping away as the space rock lit up the sky

Trail of destruction: The 100,000-tonne space rock blitzes through the air before exploding with the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs

Right time, right place: Mr Akhmetaleyev had gone out to shoot some
idyllic rural scenes when the meteorite blasted into view just where his
camera was pointing

He told the Siberian Times:
‘When the flash was as bright as possible, I felt strong heat in my
face and strong pain in my eyes of intolerable glare. It lasted just a
split second.

‘My thoughts were confused and spontaneous. The first thing I thought was not a meteorite, but a nuclear bomb.

‘Then I remembered the media reports about a possible asteroid and
its approach to the Earth. Then there was the idea that a plane had

Around two minutes after the flash, Mr Akhmetaleyev said he heard a
series of ‘clear and powerful’ blasts as the meteorite exploded with the
force of 30 Hiroshima bombs.

Devastation: The meteorite exploded over Russia’s Ural Mountains on
Friday, injuring nearly 1,500 people and causing widespread property
damage in city of Chelyabinsk

Terrifying: Around two minutes after the flash, Mr Akhmetaleyev said
he heard a series of ‘clear and powerful’ explosions as the meteorite
plunged into the ground

Capturing chaos: Mr Akhmetaleyev, who stood there ‘stunned’ for quite some afterwards, has now released his incredible pictures

Stunning: A montage of all the images taken by Marat Akhmetaleyev of the meteorite as it hurtled over the Russian sky

He added: ‘Immediately after that there was a series of bombings over
the pine forest, a large number of birds rose up and flew in all

‘My heartbeat, breathing, and hand tremors only got worse. The shock was even bigger’.

Mr Akhmetaleyev, who stood there ‘stunned’ for quite some afterwards, has now released his incredible pictures.

The 100,000-tonne meteorite exploded over Russia’s Ural Mountains on
Friday, injuring nearly 1,500 people and causing widespread property
damage in city of Chelyabinsk.

The debris narrowly missed a direct and devastating hit on the
industrial city which has a population of 1.13 million but spread panic
through its streets as the sky above lit up with a blinding flash.

Ice hole: The meteor left this 50ft hole in a frozen lake on the outskirts of Chelyabinsk, in the Urals

Disaster: Some of the destruction caused by the meteor which exploded with the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs

Measuring around 55 feet in diameter, scientists claim it is the biggest space rock to have hit earth in more than a century.

It created a huge hole in a frozen lake when it crashed into the ground.

Scientists have found more than 50 tiny fragments of the meteor, allowing them to uncover information about its contents.

But local residents have been more interested in the black market
value of the fragments since the dramatic incident, as a ‘gold mine’ has
been kickstarted fior the valuable pieces.

As they search for their own pieces of the meteor, rocks have already
been put on the internet for sale, and police are warning all
purchasers to prepare for possible fraud.
