It looks like this is “Take Cover!” Day here at EuroSavant. First thirty-one cows are fried from the sky (see entry below), and then 76-year-old Pauline Aguss of Suffolk, England, also finds herself targeted from the heavens, as reported in Belgium’s De Standaard. Mrs. Aguss survived, though; in fact, all she felt was a sharp pain in her arm while outside working in her garden, as she was hit there by what turned out to be a brown, metallic rock the size of a golfball.
It was a meteorite! Apprised of the incident, a spokesman for what De Standaard calls de Britse sterrenwacht (= “the British Starwatching Agency”; maybe the “Astronomical Society”?) admitted that such an incident was certainly possible, but that overall the chances of being hit by such a meteorite were “minimal.” (And now you may refer back to this entry’s title.)
