Cosmic concerns

A lot of people have been focused on the heavens today after a meteorite slammed into Russia today.
 
Panic was reported as the meteor burned a track across the sky before crashing into the ground.
 
Hundreds of injuries are reported along with some damage.
 
To compound the situation, the crash comes on the same day as an even bigger asteroid passed by the Earth.
 
It passed by without causing any problems.
 
Coming up tonight ON Fox Bangor and ABC 7 we'll talk with a local space expert from the University of Maine about the events.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
