Helmet cam shows apparent ‘meteorite’ nearly hitting skydiver


A group of Norwegian skydivers recently shared video that shows a close call during a 2012 jump.

The video appears to show a meteorite falling to Earth.


“It has never happened before that a meteorite has been filmed during dark flight; this is the first time in world history,” geologist Hans Amundsen told

Anders Helstrup, who was wearing the helmet cam, contacted the Natural History Museum in Oslo.

“The film caused a sensation in the meteorite community. They seemed convinced that this was a meteorite, perhaps I was the one who was the most sceptical,” Helstrup said.

In the summer of 2012, a group began searching an area where the meteorite might have landed.

“I found a stone which I thought was a meteorite and took it to the museum. They just fell about laughing,” Helstrup revealed.

While Helstrup is still not convinced it was a meteorite that flew past him, experts are convinced.

“It can’t be anything else. The shape is typical of meteorites – a fresh fracture surface on one side, while the other side is rounded,” said geologist Hans Amundsen.
