A Canadian woman got quite the scare when she was suddenly roused from her slumber by a thunderous sound and subsequently discovered that she had narrowly missed being struck by a meteorite that had crashed through her roof and landed on her bed. The very strange incident reportedly occurred in the town of Golden, British Columbia as Ruth Hamilton was sleeping earlier this month. Her peaceful rest was unceremoniously pierced in the middle of the night, however, when she heard an enormous crash and felt a peculiar dust-like material cover her face. "I just jumped up and turned on the light," she recalled, "I couldn't figure out what the heck had happened."
