Some were able to film this explosion, including a resident of Okha, who filmed with his car camera a video clip of a large meteor that exploded in the sky and posted it on YouTube. According to Russia Today.
The man said that he walked on the evening of October 28 in Dzerzhinsky Street, where he caught a bright flash that appeared in the city sky and a luminous effect resulting from the explosion, and added that he did not hear a loud sound usually caused by an explosion.
The researcher at the Institute of Space Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Natan Asmoyt, said: “The phenomenon that the car driver photographed in North Sakhalin is the fall of a meteor measuring one or two meters.” He explained that such meteorites do not usually reach the surface of the earth and explode in the atmosphere.
