Chelyabinsk Parent Body - Bad Astronomy Blog
      #6014339 - 08/08/13 06:52 PM

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

Link - http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/08/08/chelyabinsk_meteor_astron...

Best regards and clear skies,

MikeG

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...
