    Asteroid hits in Russia

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ldcreo photographed the smoke trail from a meteor that exploded on the morning of February 15 over Chelyabinsk, Russian Federation. 'Honestly, when I first saw the "cloud" I thought there had been a nuclear accident of some kind. Then there were about six "booms" so I thought maybe there was a plant or factory explosion. She says the sonic boom caused many windows to shatter and blow out, causing injuries for several hundred people. 'Many people were standing at those windows to see the trail,' she said.

    This iReport was featured in the February iReport for CNN program on CNN International.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
