Spectacular fireball explodes over Siberia

Russia has seen more than its fair share of space rocks exploding in the Earth's atmosphere in recent months.
The impressive fireball, which exploded over the Siberian town of Krasnoyarsk, is the latest in a series of meteor explosions to have been reported over Russia since December of last year.

While harmless, it is likely to have given witnesses quite a scare.

The event follows a much larger explosion that occurred over the Bering Sea back in December that went generally unnoticed at the time but was later revealed to be comparable to the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor explosion which caused widespread damage over several square miles.

Fortunately in this case however the fireball was too small to cause any damage.

Some footage of the phenomenon can be viewed below.

That's understandable. There's no problem with kids dressing up in costume, but seriously, you don't go to a theme part as an adult, dressed in a theme costume, and not expect people to think you are part of the show. No wonder she was stopped. Last thing any park needs is someone dressing up like one of them, getting close to the kids.

It's Paris so really no suprise. If this was in L.A. (Anahiem) they would have been treated to dinner and asked to sing a little song and do a little dance

Makes sense. If they allowed costumers and such it would create a huge danger for children.
