Large meteorite hits northern Norway

“A brilliant flash of light in the sky, and this became a light with a tail of smoke”. That’s the decription given by a farmer who happens to have witnessed the fall of the largest meteorite in Norway’s recent history. It hit the ground on a mountainside in Reisadalenon the 7th of June. An astronomer compared its destructive power to that of the Hiroshima bomb (less radioactive fallout).
