Is this the end of the world?! A meteor streaked over Russia, showering debris and broken glass and injuring some 735 people, according to the state-run RIA Novosti news agency. Shock waves from a blast also damaged about 270 buildings, mostly breaking windows.

Oddly enough, an asteroid is due to pass close to Earth today, but NASA spokesman Steve Cole told CNN that the events are "completely unrelated."
