Meteor Crashes in Cuba Day After Russia Fireball

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Cuba Update: Apparently, another potential meteor crash may have happened in Cuba today. Related? From the foreign language news site: “In a report released this morning by Rodas, town in the province of Cienfuegos, witnesses described a very bright light that has come to have large size, comparable to that of a bus, before exploding in the sky.”

Meanwhile, in Russia…

“it was really unexpectedly. it shined like 10 suns. all my windows in my house was broken. people was in panic in first hours. it’s not funny, really. But people is calm now.” - Facebook comment on CNN article

Russians living near the Ural Mountains were in for a terrifying surprise yesterday evening (Friday morning, locally) on Valentines Day, February 14th, when a meteor zoomed through the sky and exploded overhead, causing windows to break and hundreds to be injured (last count,  725). So far, 270 buildings are damaged. Fortunately the vast majority of injuries appear to be non life-threatening.


Amateur video footage showed a bright white streak moving rapidly across the sky, before exploding with an even brighter flash and a deafening bang.

The explosion occurred about 9:20 a.m. local time, as many people were out and about.

The national space agency, Roscosmos, said scientists believed one meteoroid had entered the atmosphere, where it burned and disintegrated into fragments, according to RIA Novosti.

The resulting meteorites are believed to be scattered across three regions of Russia, one of them Chelyabinsk, as well as neighboring Kazakhstan, the news agency said.

One large chunk was discovered in a lake in the Chelyabinsk region, RIA Novosti cited the Chelyabinsk governor as saying.


Watch video footage of the explosion:
The frightening event apparently happened in and around the Ural Mountains of Russia.

Urals Mountains in Russia

Considering a much-talked-about asteroid – Asteroid 2012 DA14 – is due to pass by Earth this afternoon, many are scratching their heads about the timing and are a bit spooked. But NASA assures everyone that there is no chance DA14 will hit Earth. Not that they did a very good job at predicting last night’s space event, though, did they?

Of course talk of the end of the world and aliens is brewing on UFO sites and conspiracy forums. The coincidence is a bit unnerving, and as with any “meteor” event, it often gets slapped into the UFO pile. Many believe the Valentines Day meteor may have been something else entirely, from a top-secret military weapon experiment gone wrong or even a crashing space craft. Russia has become famous for its apocalypse-fearing residents and intense paranormal and UFO events.

      Must be all the small peaces from the one big one that’s going by today.

      • Joerg Klaemt

        I agree about 6 month ago it was said that DA14 has companions,however I thought reading that they were trailing behind. That means there might be more to come.
        Why NASA did not see or tell us about these two extra meteorites is very strange,but does not instill confidence in their predictions and calculations.
        The Bible has more predictability than NASA?

        • Authentica

          Exactly! There were professional people blowing the whistle that NASA was in fact covering up several companion bodies coming with the asteroid. I mentioned this last week on this website & had people calling me a stark raving lunatic! This is just the beginning. There is much more to come! There are at least 3 comets coming through our solar system this year with 2 expected to be visible to the naked eye. Since the orbits & magnetospheres of planets are a delicate balance, it is a strong possibility that all this erratic movement of space rocks is a potential cause for climate change, solar flares & the massive uptick in seismic & volcanic activity experienced world-wide in the last few years. Decide for yourself ~

          in fall Comet Ison = possibly 1000x this event at least, Ive heard its bigger than mars, is this true?

      • Thane36425

        Just how big is the “big” one? I heard one measurement up to today really when it seems to have been shrunk significantly.

        • Anonymous

          They said da2014 was the size of a football field, they said this comet was 10 tons b4 russian military blew it up “local newspaper Znak” reported this

        • Mirabolin

          Comet ISON is estimated to be between 3 and 10 Kilometres long. 10 Kilometres long (about 6 miles) is the same size as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs.

          The difference is though that the one that hit the dinsoaurs hit the earth from behind, like a car rear ending another car that is moving. The movement of the car that was hit meant it rolled with the hit and so reduced the force of impact.

          ISON on the other hand is one of about 12 (amongst thousnands and thousands of meteors) that is actually travelling in an opposing orbit from earth so if it hit the earth it would hit it like two trains crashing into each other head on from opposite direction of the track. There would be no rolling with the punch lessing of the force of impact so it would actually be far worse than the one that hit the dinosaurs.

          It won’t hit the earth though. The issue is that it was only discovered four months ago and if it had been going to hit the earth rather than pass by it we would only have had a year left to live and there would have been absolutely nothing we could have done about it.

        • HiddenAenda2012

          James Mccanney says that comet Ison could be at least moon sized(3000km) and possibly as big as earth (8500km) and it looks like it has a few companions tagging along for the ride….Nasa are the ones putting its size at 10km, bearing in mind when it was first released they said it was only 26 miles wide, i ask you guys here this, how can a 10km comet outshine the full moon by a factor of 16 from a distance of 38 million miles, that is about 150 times further away than the moon and allegedly a thirtieth of its size…..the figures do not add up, remember N.A.S.A is an abreviation for “Never A Straight Answer”
          N A S A

      • Mirabolin

        Actually it might be more worrying than that (there’s a surprise!). All the astronomers are saying it wasn’t and that it was just a coincidence as they all came from different directions. What this amazing coincidence means (especially in the context of our knowing that we are also going to be passed by large meteors both in March and in September-December) is that we might just be entering into a part of space that is, like the asteroid belt, just full of meteors compared to other parts of space. The Russian and Cuban ones were both unpredicted surprises so we will just have to wait and see if we do seem to start getting more of them than we are used to.

          There is a recent episode of dooms day preppers, where a lady has been contacted by a spirit, had dreams, and now does automatic writing. She says the spirit told her to be 3000 feet above sea lvl because there is a comet coming. What was once interesting is now looking important. I am a believer in things unseen and rarely discussed, such as remote viewing, dreamstates etc. The one repetitive dream Ive had as an adult is of a meteor swarm impact… interesting.

      Spirits incarnate, living as humans in our midst; moving openly and freely, yet undetected by the masses, or even their hosts. Like the spasms of a decapitated body, the fact of the matter, thats precisely what it is; if you really think about it. Their illusions are many, which overtake the sleepwalking masses. Now know that they do take flesh and walk among men, to mold a new species. Puppet masters, the supersession of humanity. Die young, stay pretty. Just a message for the stoke: SaintVeil

        lol, this explains Joe Biden…. Hmmmmm….

    • Earthchanges

      The meteorite that hit today in Russia is not related to the that planetoid. I would think the same counts for the one that crashed in Cuba.


      • TexasUFOSightings

        Thanks. Yeah I can’t help but feel there is a correlation, though maybe not a cause. Perhaps it’s just a big meteor shower all over the place in space right now?

        • Harry Nut

          It would stand to reason there were pieces of whatever it was. I didn’t get to see it do to cloud cover. The info I got on the Russian sighting was a 55 foot piece of space rock that packed a 500kt blast. The Cuban report is new to me but not surprising….

      • Quantum Kev

        Yes, totally not related. I mean, meteors crash to earth and cause 100′s of injuries like the one in Russia all the time, right? And I mean, if one hit in Cuba too, well – that’s got to be unrelated too.

        Yeah. Ok. Whatever.

        • TexasUFOSightings

          People always defer to whatever NASA or the MSM says. They have no ability to think for themselves. They hear a scientific-sounding debunking from some “trusted” news or science source and they’re good. They don’t trust their instincts.

        • mutant_truth

          You’re dismissing facts you find inconvenient. Meteors this size do fall every year. Smaller meteors fall every day. Every. Day. Eventually, one is going to fracture and produce sonic booms within range of a city, and the boom will break glass, and the broken glass will cause injuries. That’s what happened here. Nothing mysterious. It was a little larger than average, but far too small to cause major damage, and therefore not worth tracking.

          Are natural events so scary to you that you have to find comfort in conspiracy theories and other nonsense?

        • InLikeFlint

          Here’s some information the MSM and NASA are not telling you. Yes, meteors and bolides hit the Earth everyday. Before 2005, the average for a big meteor (a bolide) was 1.2 per day and it had been that way for the last 100 years. However, after 2005, bolides have increased to a level of 5.03 per day as of last July. I’m not sure what it is now. It could be over 6 per day. But, the increase should be cause for concern for everyone on Earth. I’m sure it means something and its not too good.

    • LukeSkywatcher

      There possibly will be more before 2:30 est today and after 7:25pm est today. The debris in the tail is random and cannot be accurately calculated experts say.

      • Joerg Klaemt

        That is what I gather too,about 3 month ago it was said that DA14 has likely companions.
        Just read Zeta talk saying the usual Nibiru story that these meteorites are unrelated to DA14 and are not visible due to the fact that they come from the direction of our Sun where nibiru is hiding.
        Food for thought.. My guess that they are companions of DA14 and you are right there will be more. Just read a supposed NASA statement now its suddenly up to 95 meters large?
        WTF is NASA totally incompetent Radar Images should have provided them with accurate figures long ago.
        I dont trust their statement any more Maybe it going to hit as well 95 meters is double the size HMMMMM bet you they know where it will impact if it does,after all the other smaller pieces that likely had the same orbit did.

        NASA scientists said that the incident is not connected to the approach of 2012 DA14, which measures 45 to 95 meters in diameter and will be passing by Earth tonight at around 19:25 GMT, at the record close distance of 27,000 kilometers.

      Nah! swamp gas. Venus or something!

    • Niall

      A recently published book called “Comets and the Horns of Moses” does a great job of explaining the history of comets and asteroids and their interaction with our planet. The book also provides evidence that major impact events are by no means “rare” in human history. It’s a ‘must read’ for those who want to get up to speed on this increasingly important topic. Your life, or the life of a loved one, could depend on it!

      • W. Willow

      Looks like nibiru is here and the scum sucking foreign occupiers of our country/government are underground I bet. This is the debri in the tail of Nibiru or the dwarf star that we have been talking about. I just want those ancestors and wisemen, that the mayans say are coming to hurry up and get here, since they are the ones that created these demons who are trying to destroy everything on this planet. PLEASE GET RID OF THEM FOR US OR HELP US TO DO IT, SINCE THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING.

    • Oblivionssin

      Its not a coincidence this happened the very day that asteroid would pass. There is obviously more to this story than is being shown

      • Radagast97

        The Russian meteor came in at almost a right angle (close to the direction of the Sun) to that of the DA14, which was much closer to the line of our orbit. Just because coincidences don’t happen often, probability dictates they will.

        • Joerg Klaemt

          Where did you get that information?
          Or is it speculation? Can you prove that it indeed came from a different Direction?
          Please provide that info. its too easy to just make a statement.
          Please do use a credible source not Zeta Talk either. Thank you.

      meteorites. is just the candle to the cake thats about to be lighted like a rumbling volcanic high level magnitude earthquake sprouting like roots from the bottom up. but the real question is when not how or why. since the whole earth is a graveyard already so think about it its just a thought with advice in it not judgement. . peace predictability.

      Ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, that God is punishng those Godless commies? The Bible said that God promised to punish those that turn their backs on Him.

      • Realist

        No one in their right minds gives a damn about what Bible says. And your pathetic God cannot punish anyone, because he doesn’t exist.

      The hole in the ice is all wrong! Too small and regular.

      • Realist

        Well, dang, i suppose we have no other choice than to believe you, because you apparently know everything about meteorites and celestial objects. I salute your infinite wisdow, o great one.

        Of course, just about everyone here knows everything and whatever those who have actual credentials and education say are automatically wrong because, heaven forbid, they just might work for the Government :roll:

        Stay classy, BiN.

      • W. Willow

        Well dang, it was just an amateur expectation that the hole might be more irregular, the ice a little more plowed up given the angle of entry of whoknowswhat shaped piece of something. The contrails even stay around for awhile or was it ‘smoke’ as described? Interesting, given how quickly ‘shooting stars’ normally disappear. Don’t mind my comparing.

        Well dang, the Rooskies are ‘claiming’ this hole is due to meteor activity, therefore it is.

        >>Russia has become famous for its apocalypse-fearing residents and intense paranormal and UFO events.<< This event rather solidifies these kinds of expectations. Interesting. Cooperative ops ? :roll:

    • Mayhem

      Asteroid DA14 passed as expected yet, coincidentally a 10 ton jobbie went all meteor on us and we never saw it coming. Random as you like, huh?

    • velma7

      I do think it is connected to the 2012 asteroid – meteors do tend to be in showers, and this could be part of the asteroid. Its too much coincidence, there hasnt been a big explosion like that in Russia – what about the debris – wheres nuclear fallout?

    • Melvin Hicks

      I do not believe in This meteor. The films are fake, of course, the people were suffering from mass panic. I have seen no pictures of any meteor. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Most likely some swamp gas caught fire from tectonic plasma balls and blew the place up. Yeah, that is what happened. Meteors are a thing of the mind. They can do anything with photoshop and CGI these days. All of the testimony is just that, words, not proof. The broken glass? A viral texting stunt to coincide with the burning swamp gas….anytime something strange happens people cry,”It must have came from space”. Man is so gullible. I’m glad I’m the sane one :roll:

      Once again I ask: where’s the photos and videos of the crater/impact location of the 17meter one that hit in a populated area? Had to be hundreds of people there with cameras.

    • An Observer

      This got posted originally 2 hours after the Russian meteor hit the news.

      It was posted here on BIN if anyone cares to go back and look.

      So right off the bat, this story is wrong, it wasn’t a day after. It was hours after.

      Also, every single article I’ve seen online for this, is word for word, the same, including badly written witness description. With 0 other information/pictures/proof, just one poor witness description.

      This news is fake and incorrect. Just lettin anyone know that cares, to take 5 minutes to google it, can find out the same.
