A giant meteor blasted atop a Russian city on Friday morning -- and injured more than 1,000 people. Due to its massive size and loud noise, many onlookers thought that a war had broken out. Several witnesses captured the meteor on cell phones and video cameras.

One scientist told a Russian TV station that the meteor weighed perhaps tens of tons, but said that it wasn't related to the asteroid that is expected to buzz close to Earth soon. American NASA scientists also confirmed that the meteor wasn't related to asteroid DA14, which is expected to pass Earth at a distance of 17,000 miles but not strike.

ABCNEWS.GO.COM reports:
More than 1,200 people were injured when a massive meteor broke apart above the Russian city of Chelyabinsk today, raining burning bits of rock over the city that shattered windows and caused a panic.

    Boy! They must have thought that George Bush and Marco Rubio was bombing them with some kind of High-Powered Water Rocket or some such; traveling @ 33,000 Miles Per Hour . . .

    I'd probably say "WTH?," get a bit freaked out because a few people could make nice sized houses in that thing, and try to find some place with some safety to watch from, because that's a once in a lifetime sight.

    Scared? No if I saw a giant meteorite crashing towards me I probably feel the overwhelming since of inevitability followed by anticipation then seconds before I would be hit with the blast wave from the impact I would assume euphoria would be my next sensation.

    I wana say I would be but honestly idk for sure. I'm not scared of death or anything like that I might actually just think it was amazing and enjoy the moment after all nothing I'd be able to do to stop it.

    There's no point in fearing something I cannot control; I'd actually be amazed. I've never seen anything from space outside of our Sun, our Moon, and the stars. If it was coming in my direction, I don't think I'd do anything but stare at it; what else could be done?

    I would want to see it hit the ground though; it'd quite a groundbreaking experience.

    I'd know that George F-ing Bush sent it. So evil that giant meteors obey his spells and fall out of orbit to kill people and break things. He conjured this meteor down by chanting, "Put food on your family" three times... and it came to pass.

    The way the question is framed, including the word MASSIVE, begs for a yes answer. Reframe it this way: Would you be afraid if you saw a thermonuclear weapon in the sky?

    Massive is a relative term. This thing weighed approximately 80,000 pounds. Tunguska was likely much larger than that. The article suggests that it was the bits of rock that blew out windows. No, it was the sonic boom and explosion that blew out windows.

    There is no point in being afraid of something you can't do anything about. If anything, I'd only hope for a direct hit so my death would be instant.

    & no. Yes, because I would be scared of where it would hit. As far as I'm concerned, I don't want be in the way of this thing. But as far as asteroids are concerned a lot of it is exaggerated. I know I'm biased because I'm Christian. Destruction will come to earth, but it won't be some asteroid. It will be because of our nuclear weapons.
