There is a very good article about identifying the parent body of the Chelyabinsk meteorite on Phil Plait's "Bad Astronomy" blog.

Apparently there was a large hole made in the ice on a lake. However Russian divers claim the asteroid was NOT resting on the bottom of the lake.


Doesn't make sense to me... :foreheadslap: :o
