An image from the SEVIRI instrument aboard Eumetsat's Meteosat-10 geostationary satellite. The vapor trail visible in the center of the image was left by an asteroid or meteor that struck Earth near Chelyabinsk, Russia, 15 February 2013, around 03:15 UT. Initial media reports included accounts of injuries and property loss. This image uses data from the High Resolution Visible (HRV) channel of SEVIRI that can produce images with both high spatial and temporal resolution.
