On the 12. Febuary 1947 at 10:38 am, eyewitnesses in the Sikhote-Alin region of eastern Russia, observed a bright flash in the sky, followed by a fireball brighter than the sun descend from the atmosphere. The resounding boom could be heard as far away as 300 kilometers from the impact site. This event would prove to be the biggest meteorite strike of it´s kind in modern history, attracting the press and scientists eager to examine the visitors from outer space.
