Family freak meteorite showerFamily ‘lucky to be alive’ after freak meteorite shower

The Marston-Jones family is happy to be alive and living in Shrewsbury, Great Britain. However, they could do without the meteorite showers that happened in their garden. Harry who is two years old was playing and so was his four year old brother Benjamin when the meteorites came flying out of the sky and landed a few inches away from where they were.

According to Ms. Marston-Jones, the mother of the two boys, there are about fifteen fragments of outerspace materials that pelted the boys as they jumped up and down on their trampoline, the Telegraph reports.

The boys were playing and they started to hear loud popping sounds. They also could smell something which their mother said smelled like something on fire. A Strong odor of something burning or already burnt. Next she saw rocks that were coloured brownish and black. Some were more than an inch in width. They were on her patio and landed by the boys too. She later learned that these rocks that fell from teh sky were fragments from the twilight zone of outer space.

A local scientist was sent photos of the event but she could not say for sure that these rocks were from a meteorite without more tests. That’s science for you. What we can say for sure is, Ms. Marston-Jones is happy her boys are doing okay.
