Meteorite Falls on the Roof of a Family Allotment in Oslo

According to Norwegian daily VG, the meteorite caused a hole in the roof of the house. The owner of the house, Rune Thomassen told VG that the meteorite piece was about as big as a snowball, and as heavy as a regular stone in its size.

Expert on astrobiologi and geophysicist Hans Amundsen believes that it is a very rare meteorite because it contains fragments of many different rocks that are cemented together, a so-called breccia.

It is relatively unusual to find pieces of meteorite hitting earth. Norway has recorded fourteen such findings since 1848.The last time was in Moss in 2006.
