Skydiver and Meteorite

In the video you can see a meteorite filmed in the air, by a skydiver, after its light from the flames goes out.   Watch the video…

Helstrup, wearing a wing suit and with two cameras fixed to his helmet, released his parachute. On the way down he realised something was happening.



“I got the feeling that there was something, but I didn’t register what was happening,” Helstrup explained to NRK.no.

“When we stopped the film, we could clearly see something that looked like a stone. At first it crossed my mind that it had been packed into a parachute, but it’s simply too big for that.”

Meteorite experts get involved

Eventually Helstrup contacted the Natural History Museum in Oslo.



“The film caused a sensation in the meteorite community. They seemed convinced that this was a meteorite, perhaps I was the one who was the most sceptical.”
