A large meteorite fell in Norway (VIDEO)

On Sunday, “Unusually large meteor” briefly illuminated the southern part of Norway, creating an impressive sound and light effect, and perhaps a small part of it fell to Earth, near the capital Oslo, experts say .

No injuries or damage were reported.

Reports of observations began to arrive around midnight, and the phenomena were observed even in the north, to Trondheim.

A webcam in Holmestrand, south of Oslo, showed a fireball falling from the sky and flashing a bright flash illuminating the marina.

The Norwegian network Meteor analyzed video and other data to try to determine the origin and destination of the meteor.

According to preliminary data, the meteorite may have fallen to Earth in a large wooded area called Finnemark, just 60 km west of the capital Oslo.

Preliminary analysis of video from the cameras shows that the meteor fell in Lier, about 15 miles west of Oslo, he said.

“It was crazy,” Morten Ticket, who saw and heard the meteor, told Reuters.

According to Morten, no fragments were found by noon on Sunday, and, given the “difficult” location, it may take “about 10 years” to find possible meteorites.

According to Ticket, the meteor was moving at a speed of 15-20 km per second and illuminated the night sky for about five to six seconds.

Some eyewitnesses also said they felt a strong wind that caused a wave of pressure.

Some people near the meteor trajectory reported feeling a shock wave. Doors and windows opened from the gust of wind. However, no damage was reported.

A meteor that exploded over central Russia near the city of Chelyabinsk in 2013, hit bullets in a large area and caused a shock wave that shattered windows, damaged buildings and injured 1,200 people. .
