My gut tells me that this big of an event happens, on average, about once a century.  It's normal.

The fact that the last two major ones were in Russia.....does NOT seem normal.  105 years between Tunguska and this one.

In fairness,  this is simply 'nowhere'  near the scale of Tunguska, which was almost a nuclear blast in effect. There also must be simply hundreds yearly that just head into the sea, seeing as Earth is 3/4 water surface.

So I ask the same question again....did the professional sky watchers see this coming?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Okay...let me word this another way.

The last two that have caused damage/injuries have both been in Russia.  And I don't care how big the Tunguska one was....it didn't injure as many as have been reported for this one.

You don't find it even a little odd?  I'm certain it's just coincidental.  I'm not suggesting anything paranormal here.  But you HAVE to admit that this isn't normal.

I expect a lot of them  were setting up their scopes in the opposite direction for the 'other' asteroid fly-by.

Ha typical isn't it...we look over 'there' and one kicks us right up the jacksie from behind us!   Id like to think the Russians had some sort of pre-warning but... will leave that to others to answer

well... I'm not disagreeing, but we must also remember the earth 'revolves'... so a few hours earlier and it would have possibly struck elsewhere. But thats the great thing about space/universe... always something odd to discuss !!

Just my 2 cents but do you know how big russia is? Covering two continents its more likely to hit russia than other countries twice imo.
I am just thankful it happened somewhere not as much populated. That disaster would be fat worse

haha, have you seen the car crashes in Russia on the roads on youtube? they all seem to have a camera on the dashboard hoping  for a quick 250quid from You`ve been framed.........but seriously the truth is lorries have to have them incase of an accident.

I do not think it landed there because it had more space to crash, but I see what you are saying. but it could happen anywhere, thats the scary bit, it just happened to be Russia this time, only cos it was in its way.
the scary thing is, is it could happen anywhere.

Now we see the real thing, it is interesting now correct film makers have been in their fictional depictions. And Russia is so very big that obviously there is much more probability of such an event happening than anywhere else. Anything coming in from celestial North, as this one did, will have Russia stretching around much northern hemisphere as a target.

Professor T, excellent thread you started!

I have already given it.
Lorries have to have them.
Its an insurance thing, maybe in Russia the cars have them too because there are so many people trying to fiddle the insurance claims...thats why the lorries have to have them now, to stop the fiddles.
