Movie: Why the Russian Super Meteor was not related to asteroid 2012 DA14 - explained with the help of an orange

Dutch note: een Nederlandstalige versie van deze video is eerder hier gepost.

Added Note: the reality is slightly more complex than I present it in the video, as objects that graze just past the earth limb are slightly deflected by earth gravitation and can end up on (low) northern latitudes. Latitude 55 N is out of the question though, and as this added detail might make the story too complex I decided to leave it out.
