Meteor explodes over Bergen, Norway
At 05.15 in the morning, the night was suddenly lit in the sky over Bergen.

A meteor exploded in a giant puff, and for a few seconds it was nearly as bright as day.

- We have received several reports of the meteor, it was at least as bright as a full moon, says Tor E. Aslesen, leader of the Norwegian Astronomical Society, to TV2.

The meteor appeared just above the western horizon. Aslesen has calculated the path, altitude and speed of the meteor.

- The speed was tremendous, 20 kilometers per second, (72,000 km/h), and it burned for a full 12 seconds. It is really exceptional, he says.

For people in Bergen it seemed as if the meteor had exploded right over their heads. It did not.

- The meteor entered the atmosphere north of Shetland, 95.3 kilometers above sea level, It then went southeast, and disappeared west of Nordfjord, 36.9 km kilometers above us, says Aslesen.
