MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) - Mark Brown is used to looking down on meteors not up at them. Brown is a former astronaut who flew in space aboard Columbia and Discovery.
He watched in wonder as he sawvideo on WDTN.COM of the impact in Russia. He did know of the situation until he arrived at WDTN in Moraine for an unrelated interview.
Brown said, "It doesn't burn up until it actually hits the atmosphere which is below us when we were at 300 miles in orbit., so it's a great and amazing thing to see."
"It's very unusual that not only do we get to capture one on video, but that it has such a dramatic impact, sonic booms, broken glass, people injured. Although we feel for the people who were affected by this, it truly is an incredible event and something that will be studied for a long time," said the former astronaut.
