On Sunday, the territory was examined by a group of scientists-enthusiasts and found at the “crash site” a lot of interesting facts. “MK” has already reported a large fireball flew from the sky and crashed in the forest near the village in the vicinity of the airport “Domodedovo”.

About the flight and the bright glow of the explosion in the woods we were told then five eyewitnesses. Two days later arrived at the scene the scientists-enthusiasts of the NGO “Laboratory K”, specializing in the investigation of falls of meteorites.

As we told the group leader Leonid Gavrilov, they are really found in the forest impact crater characteristic of a meteorite (with release of soil, burnt trees around) and learned from him the fragments of the alleged heavenly “visitor”. There is already an agreement with the laboratory of the Vernadsky Institute on a joint re-survey of the crater and extracted particles.
