Back in the summer of 2012, skydiver and wingsuit flyer Anders Helstrup and several other members of Oslo Parachute Club jumped from a small plane above Hedmark, Norway. After deploying his parachute, Helstrup stated that he felt “something” happen while on the way down that he happened to capture on his helmet cam.

That “something” was a small meteorite plummeting to Earth, and his video is the first time in history that a meteorite has been filmed in the air after it’s finished burning, or “dark flight.”

While Helstrup is still skeptical, experts like geologist Hans Amundsen agree that due to its shape, it “can’t be anything else.”
