MOSCOW – The asteroid that landed outside of Moscow is still glowing, and now it’s growing.
Russian superhero, Ural, and a team of scientists have kept watch of the asteroid since yesterday. They were measuring a constant heat signature emanating from within the rock when they noticed that it was getting bigger. The scientists have not been allowed to comment, but Ural said, “It has grown nearly 200 meters overnight. A remarkable, and unsettling, growth has occurred.”
Authorities have been spending the majority of their time keeping the curious away from the scene, which is difficult to do considering the size of the asteroid. Crowds have gathered on hilltops with telescopes to see the rock for themselves. The glow was even enough to light up the night sky. Some residents reported strange dreams of outer space, saying they’ve seen star systems not visible from Earth.
Scientists have been unable to determine the source of the heat signature or the growth or whether they have any relation to the dreams. So far, they’ve only ruled out nuclear radiation as a possible cause, but they are proceeding with caution in case other types of radiation are involved.
