Ural Meteorite

The amazing meteorite today in Russia was viewed in Chelyabinsk Oblast (State). I visited the Chelyabinsk (based in the capital city of Chelyabinsk) many moons ago. It is one of the most polluted places I have visited with contamination from both industry current and historic and also as a result of three nuclear accidents well before Chernobyl. Much of the Oblast is unsafe to go to due to the degree of nuclear contamination.

I have put up some photographs from my time in the snowy conditions there on to Flickr.
