Short summary
Two traveling ionospheric disturbances (TIDs) were observed by the GPS network in Asia following the large meteorite blast over Chelyabinsk, Russia. No TIDs propagating in a global range were found. Features of TIDs were compared with those excited by early nuclear explosion tests. It is inferred from our analysis that the energy release of the Chelyabinsk meteorite blast may not be large enough to excite such ionospheric disturbances in a global range as some nuclear explosions have done.
