A 14-year old German boy was hit in the hand by a pea-sized meteorite that scared the bejeezus out of him and left a scar.
I had to laugh at that line.
I’m very lucky because where I am on most clear nights you’ll see at least two or three `shooting stars`. One of them (a few months back) was a big one that exploded three fields away (about a mile maybe a mile and a half). It was very nice to watch.
My neighbor works on the farm and ten years back he was harrowing a field when he ran over this lump of iron that was longer and wider than a normal laptop and about four inches deep. Destroyed the chain harrow as well.
But you’ve got to wonder if it was worth it's while staying in one piece though. Just a poor really.
