'House-sized' meteorite hits

"A METEORITE reportedly the size of a house fell on the New South Wales south coast overnight, exploding in a bright flash, police have said.


The meteorite was described as glowing silver in colour and similar to an artillery shell when it exploded with a bright flash on impact."
I thought all those stories about meteorite and asteroid impacts always screamed that a hit by anything bigger than this would produce a multi-megaton explosion, wiping out all life in the area and creating a nuclear-winter like effect?

Maybe it wasn't a meteorite....

Anyone check lately to make sure the International Space Station or the Hubble's still in orbit?
