Meterorite chunk crashes into house, bedroom, pillow
"Talking to the operator, she was asking me all kinds of questions, and at that point, I rolled back one of the two pillows I'd been sleeping on and in between them was the meteorite." "You're sound asleep, safe, you think, in your bed, and you can get taken out by a meteorite, apparently." Initially, Hamilton didn't know it was a meteorite. "He called up there and they said they had not done any blasting that night. But the workers had seen a meteorite, or a falling star, explode and there was a couple of booms. Then we knew that it was a meteorite that had crashed through my roof," Hamilton said. "It's certainly a meteorite," said Peter Brown, a professor with the university's physics and astronomy department. "Everything about the story was consistent with a meteorite fall, and the fact that this bright fireball had occurred basically right at the same time made it a pretty overwhelming case." Hamilton plans to send the meteorite to Brown and his team.
