Footage emerges of skydiver's narrow miss with 'meteorite'

Video footage has emerged of what some people have claimed is a meteorite falling to Earth and narrowly missing a skydiver, Anders Helstrup.

One specialist suggested the object might be in "dark flight" - the portion of descent when a meteorite stops glowing after it enters the atmosphere.

Others were more sceptical, saying the object did not appear to be travelling fast enough.

The incident took place in June 2012 in southern Norway and the region has since been combed to find the space rock.

Tom Santorelli reports.
