Woman In Canada Woke Up From Meteorite Crashing Into The Ceiling Of Her House


A woman in Canada almost got struck by a meteorite that crashed into the roof of her house. The woman, Ruth Hamilton said she woke up from her sleep when she heard a loud bang on the ceiling and found dust on her face.


According to Smithsonian Magazine, the woman got up from the bed to turn on the lights and found a rock on her bed. Hamilton called 911 to find out about the rock that fell, a policeman then arrived at the scene to inspect the stone.


Later on, Meteor Physicist Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario confirmed that it was a meteorite, and not some rock from a construction site. “Everything about the story was consistent with a meteorite fall, and the fact that this bright fireball had occurred right at the same time made it a pretty overwhelming case.”


Surprisingly, a group of people had witnessed a meteor shower on a lake located around 83km away from Hamilton's home. She decided to keep the meteorite as a souvenir and something to be kept in her family for generations to come.
