Unique photos of Chelyabinsk meteorite explosion
February 15, it was a frosty morning in Chelyabinsk (about -17 degrees Celsius), windless and cloudless. The previous day was very warm (the temperature was near zero), and so the next morning all the trees were covered with frost.
Photographer Marat Ahmetvaleev (marateaman) decided to take some landscape pictures on his favorite point near his home. Around 9:00 am he was at the place and made the first shots.
There was nothing unusual in the sky. After making a few shots from different angles, he moved to another place. The camera was pointed in the direction of the rising sun.
The object appeared out of the blue! The camera was on a tripod looking almost in the direction in which the object appeared.
Marat saw a bright flash by corner of his eye, initially the flash was small. He immediately turned the camera to the object, and at this moment the explosion reached its peak, and everything was bathed in bright light.
