In Canada, it is belatedly known that there was a recent ‘dizziness’ in which a meteorite broke through the roof of a house and fell onto the bed of a sleeping woman.
According to CBC broadcasting on the 12th (local time), Ruth Hamilton (female) living in Golden, an inland city in British Columbia (BC), woke up to the sound of a dog barking in her sleep on the 3rd night, and a black stone fell right next to her pillow. When I saw what was there, I was confused.
The black charcoal-like stone was the size of a watermelon, and had a roof right above the bed.
His face was baptized with fragments.
“As soon as I opened my eyes, I heard a huge explosion, and debris flew all over my face,” he said at the time.
“I turned on the light right away and didn’t know what to do,” he said.
What’s more, when he found out that the meteorite’s landing point was right next to the pillow he had just been tossing around his head, he said, “My whole body trembled like a leaf.”
At first, I didn’t know that this rock was a meteorite, but after receiving a report and dispatching the police, they investigated the area and informed me that a heap of meteorites had fallen in the area that night.
The police investigated whether there was any blasting work at the nearby construction site at the time, and the on-site staff said that they witnessed the fall of the meteorite.
In addition, Hamilton reported this to the Department of Astronomy at Western University in London, Ontario, and the university confirmed that the rock was actually a meteorite that fell from space.
A professor of astronomy at the university said that he plans to analyze the meteorite as soon as it is delivered, and that the type of meteorite will be revealed next month.
He said that this is not the first time a meteorite has fallen onto a bed in a family, and that the same thing happened in Indonesia about a year ago.
Golden is a small town with a population of 3,700 on the Alberta border, 200 kilometers west of Calgary.
