Meteorite narrowly misses Norwegian skydiver (VIDEO)

A Norwegian skydiver was nearly hit by a meteorite as it entered the Earth's atmosphere, and it was all caught on camera. 

The video was shot by skydiver, Anders Helstrup, in the summer of 2012 and recently began making the rounds on the web.

A geologist confirmed that a meteoroid had exploded just above Helstrup and his group.

Ever since then, teams of experts and enthusiasts have been scouring the Norwegian countryside in search of the rock but have not located it yet.

This is the first time in history that a meteorite has been filmed in the air after its light goes out.

The video was uploaded to YouTube on Thursday and has already received more than a million views.
