On Saturday, one day and eleven time zones away from the blast, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s meteorite collection was a magnet for the newly fascinated. A volunteer at the information desk said he’d been directing visitors to the collection all morning. Knots of them gathered in front of the gnarled chunks that have previously peppered the Earth, comparing their iron reality to the arresting images from Russia.

“Oh man, I’ve watched the videos about a hundred times,” said Jon Lee, a musician who was viewing the white-hot flash once more on his smartphone. “I can’t get over the sound it made.”

He stood before one of the collection’s prized specimens, the dishwasher-sized Goose Lake meteorite that slammed long ago into an unpeopled California. “I don’t want that thing falling on my head.”

  1. The intrigue is magnificent. What are you upto Ani??
