Gerrit Blank Hit By Meteorite Germany
January 19, 2012 by staff
Gerrit Blank Hit By Meteorite Germany, Gerrit Blank, 14, was on his way to school when he saw “ball of light” heading straight towards him from the sky.
A red hot, pea-sized piece of rock then hit his hand before bouncing off and causing a foot wide crater in the ground.
The teenager survived the strike, the chances of which are just 1 in a million – but with a nasty three-inch long scar on his hand.
He said: “At first I just saw a large ball of light, and then I suddenly felt a pain in my hand.
“Then a split second after that there was an enormous bang like a crash of thunder.”
