, Twitter users were roused from their slumber.
The news broke in the United States just before midnight and it was hours before experts said the Russian meteor strike wasn't related to Friday's near-Earth flyby of 150-foot asteroid.

Many looked to the Bible for explanations.
Others connected the meteor to other current events for laughs.
And others decided it was time to prep for something larger.
