A mysterious rock, believed to be a meteorite, crashed through the roof of a house in Phitsanulok’s Muang district, Thailand, on June 28, 2016.
The suspected meteorite fell through the roof of a home in Plai Chumphon at 7.26am, hit a wall and then bounced to the floor, breaking into five pieces.
The owner of the house explains:
I was having breakfast when I was suddenly surprised by a loud bang. After looking around, I found a rock about the size of an egg and some fragments nearby. The largest chunk was still very hot.
The woman, Mrs Bualom, believes the rock is from outer space and will bring her good luck.
Mr Bualom also heard the explosion at about 7am before the 300g rock fell through his roof.
The loud bang was also reported in the adjacent districts of Nakhon Thai and Chat Trakan.
After a first investigation, scientists believe this chunk of rock is likely a meteorite as it contained large amount of iron and was attracted by a magnet.
