Meteor hunters could soon find themselves $10,000 richer. The skies over Edmonton, Alberta lit up last week when a giant burning meteorite fell from space.
The excitement over the happening is now growing to feverish levels as Robert Haag, a meteor collector from the Unites States, has offered up the reward money to anyone who can find a 1kg nugget of the meteorite.
Better get out there quick guys, the snow is coming and that will make sky-rock hunting a lot more difficult.
The original video shot from a police dash camera has over 1.3 million views, this one contains that clip, along with new footage.
