Record meteorite hit Norway – Aftenposten.no
Astronomers were excited by the news.

“There were ground tremors, a house shook and a curtain was blown into the house,” Norway’s best known astronomer Knut Jørgen Røed Ødegaard told Aftenposten.no.

Røed Ødegaard said the meteorite was visible to an area of several hundred kilometers despite the brightness of the midnight sunlit summer sky. The meteorite hit a mountainside in Reisadalen in North Troms.
