An interactive Ustream, live streaming was set up by NASA JPL for updates on the Earth flyby Asteroid 2012 DA14 this February 15, 2013.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 is the closest asteroid flyby to Earth that happened so far. The meteor will remain visible until at about midnight.

Meanwhile, another meteor injured hundreds in Russia’s Ural Mountains.

According to BBC:

“The Russian Academy of Sciences estimates that the meteor weighed about 10 tonnes and entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of at least 54,000 km/h (33,000mph).”

The meteor has injured people with “cuts and bruises” and there were areas where loud explosions occurred, breaking glass and injuring people.
