The meteorite that crashed on Russia was hit by an unidentified flying object causing it to explode and shatter over the Urals, it has been claimed.
The bizarre theory is based on analysis of blurry footage of the space rock as it streaked across morning sky above the city of Chelyabinsk.

in the Urals, before the meteorite hit, followed by none at all since the incident
Footage seen ahead of the incident two ‘glowing bowls’ seen flying in the sky at night over the village of Chabry.
Separately in day time, similar objects were seen over Chelyabinsk, it is claimed.
On both occasions they moved across the sky, disappeared, and then returned.
Russia has called for major international efforts to develop the technology zap incoming space objects, but there is no suggestion any military strike was made at the meteorite on 15 February which was not spotted in advance.
The 100,000 tonne rock, measuring around 55 feet in diameter, created a huge hole in a frozen lake when it crashed into the ground.
Scientists have found more than 50 tiny fragments of the meteor, allowing them to uncover information about its contents.
Divers are believed to have located several lumps of the meteorite in Lake Chebarkul in Chelyabinsk region.
