Russian DashCam 'Explosion'

Gridlock

Senior Member.
Apologies, as ever, if the wrong place, but I couldn't help but feel you guys would like this;


My Russkiy is russtiy, but could be anything from a fog-bound firework to a meteorite to a missile test?

The timing of the brake lights in front suggests to me (on the face of it) this is an actual event rather than a digital thingy. But hoax has to be in the list, of course.

Certainly looks like a bright fireball (as in meteor) obscured by cloud. The duration looks comparable to other meteor videos I've seen. I'm checking around for confirmation.

The event occurred near town Rezh in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. Apart of DashCams on the road, the event was captured on a phone by some kids in the town:

It probably was a bolide. Amongst many other versions, discussed on the russian sites, there is a notable one about the planned destruction of explosives in the area. However, the Russian military officials deny any involvement.

Destruction of explosives isn't done in the air, anyway. Military explosives generally don't make a bright Hollywood style fireball, either. Munition destruction looks more like this:



Only thing a military could do that would mimic a bolide would be an atmospheric nuclear test, and if Russia had done that there would be so much diplomatic shit hitting so many fans there's no way it wouldn't be all over every news channel.

Another angle of this explosion shows the possibility of being ground based, with the sky merely reflecting and magnifying the light.




A screenshot at about 14 seconds into the new video.




I found this at the following link, it was posted as an update to the original story.

Edit: Video appears to be borked at this time, so a direct link here.
Edit 2: Nope. I don't know how to do this properly it seems. This is the link, with a space or two added to break the linking mechanism so I can figure it out.

Edit 3: Found a YouTube mirror of it, hoping that one works.

Very interesting. Certainly looks like something is there on the ground. Has anyone pinned down the location of the videos, to triangulate a position?
