In footage taken by a Dutch resident, it looks like a slow shooting star, but a meteorite may have gone down somewhere in Belgium or Holland on Friday morning.
Fripon, a Belgian research project, recorded the potential meteorite on camera. The Belgian broadcaster RTBF reports that a search for fragments is now underway.
Fripon is calling on residents in the area between Dendermonde and Alost, some 30km north-west of Brussels, to look out for stones that may have come from outer space. The researchers hope that a successful search could provide invaluable discoveries.
