Crazy Moment of the Day: This Skydiver Was Almost Struck by a Meteorite

One summer day in 2012, Anders Helstrup and several other members of Oslo Parachute Club jumped from a small plane that had taken off from Østre Æra Airport in Hedmark.

Helstrup, wearing a wing suit and with two cameras fixed to his helmet, released his parachute. On the way down he realised something was happening.

"I got the feeling that there was something, but I didn't register what was happening," Helstrup explained.

Immediately after landing, he looked through the film from the jump, which clearly showed that something did happen.

Something that looks like a stone hurtles past Helstrup – clearing him by only a few metres.

"This is the first time in history that a meteorite has been filmed in the air after its light goes out," says geologist Hans Amundsen.
