Back around 1999 I bumped into a website that talked about a Nostradamus prediction about a "comet" that painted a picture of pieces of it peppering the Continent, almost like a 20s gangster's tommy-gun peppering the metal doors of a roadster or touring car.

My advice: Watch the Skies!
Russia's space agency Roscosmos said the meteorite was travelling at a speed of 30 km (19 miles) per second and that such events were hard to predict. The Interior Ministry said the meteorite explosion had caused a sonic boom.
