    Mag 2, maybe not even felt by people but I wonder if they can use those figures to calculate the mass and kinetic energy of the meteor? Obviously it was the shock wave caused by the meteor exploding that registered on the ground so maybe they could use that to calc the kinetic energy of the meteor.

    I could probably stomp on my basement floor and generate a 2 level quake so it's no surprise you wouldn't feel it. You were not up at the hour it flew by, it was seen in 4 states.

    Surely they knew this thing was coming in hot right? What if it landed in a populated area?

    There was this thing 65 million years ago and it definitely landed in a populated area so do the math🙂

    What is a methead? Is that a typo? Get more sleep and that won't happen as much.
