The giant meteor that exploded over Russia caused some 1,500 people to be injured and thousands of buildings damaged. Here's the most interesting part: most of them didn't know it was a meteor. Can you blame them?

According to a poll from Moscow's Public Opinion Foundation, most people thought it was just regular old Russia stuff. Because crazy things keep happening there. Some thought it was a falling plane, others thought it was a failed rocket launch, and some people thought it was just an explosion.

Obviously, some thought it was a UFO too. Because why not? Is it? [RIA h/t @mpoppel]
