Noémie still can’t believe it. A meteorite crossed the sky of Brittany on Sunday evening, shortly before midnight. Many residents were surprised in the middle of the night, like this young 21-year-old from Brest.
While she was playing on her computer, she confides on RMC having spotted a strange light in the sky:
“Suddenly I saw a big green and white light that lit up the sky. It was like a big white ball that left a beam of light behind it. It didn’t look like a shooting star, it was much bigger and above all, it changed color, to become orange and disappear. It lasted several seconds: I had time to see what was happening and to stress a little … Some time later, I I felt that the ground had shaken a bit too. It was really very very special “she confides.
The most impressive is the explosion that followed the passage of this celestial object heard tens of kilometers away. Meteorites enter the atmosphere at a speed of 10 km per second, at least, or 30 times the speed of sound.
No debris has yet been found. The Finistère firefighters we contacted were unaware of an impact point.
