The meteorite which streaked across the skies in Russia might be the most spectacular ever seen - but it's not the first.
YouTube is resplendent with footage of dramatic, explosive meteorite strikes and showers in the sky.
In fact meteorite strikes are fairly common - it's just most of the time they don't occur in populated areas.
Luckily no one has ever been killed by a meteorite, according to the Natural History Museum.
A dog was, however, killed by the fall of the Nakhla martian meteorite in Egypt in 1911
