A Heavenly Wakeup Call

A meteorite landed inches away from a woman's pillow as she slept

Ruth Hamilton was woken up by a cosmic crash on October 3, when a meteorite blazed through her roof and landed on her pillow inches away from her face, according to CBC News.

The woman, who lives in Golden, British Columbia, Hamilton told CBC she was woken up by her dog barking.

"The next thing was just a huge explosion and debris all over my face," Hamilton told CBC. "I jumped out of bed and turned on the lights. I didn't know what else to do, so I called 911."

Hamilton said that in a dazed, she "rolled back one of the two pillows I'd been sleeping on and in between them was the meteorite." Other photos in CBC's report show Hamilton's roof with a hole pierced through it.

According to the report, Hamilton kept mum at first after the incident. She told CBC that she plans to keep the galactic gift after the researchers are done analyzing it, if possible.

I hope she charges them a goodly fee for looking at her space rock.

  1. To rock hunters and other this meteorite can be worth thousands of dollars.
    True charge the people that are studying it a hefty fee per hour to looking at it.
