Update at 9:50 a.m. ET. NASA Scientist Concurs; No Connection To Asteroid:

"The meteor explosion over Russia ... was not caused by an asteroid zooming close by the Earth today (Feb.15), a NASA scientist says.

NASA asteroid expert Don Yeomans, head of the agency's Near-Earth Object Program Office, told SPACE.com that the object which exploded over a thinly inhabited stretch of eastern Europe today was most likely an exploding fireball known as a bolide."

A bit disconcerting, even humbling, that while we were all watching for the big one, a little one got through and caused some fear and damage. A little like watching for your opponents right cross, only to be stung and reminded that he's got a good left jab. Those people in Russia certainly saw the light. Hope no one was badly hurt or had a cardiac event.

In a follow up from a remark I made earlier in this thread:
Quote:
Hale-Bopp, what can I say...I watched that for two months in the Northwest for hours. It is still visible in the largest telescopes after 16years. If I can find it there is a pic of it, and I'll post it.

From: Post #37
First some corrections to that quote.
  1. The latest image (2000) I can find is here: Comet Hale-Bopp Home Page (JPL)
  2. There is imaging in 2001 from the La Silla Telescope in Chile, those pictures are elusive. But,
  3. The latest for Hubble was in 2009.
  4. The Herschel Space Telescope has taken PACS images of Hale-Bopp in 2010
  5. The VLT in 2011.
  6. That makes the latest 14years.
The links from #'s 2 to 5 are informational for the telescopes, The pictures are here page 2:
