Massive meteor lights up Norway skies; may have landed near Oslo

The meteor travelled at 15-20 km per second and lit up the night sky for about five to six seconds, say experts.

An "unusually large meteor" briefly lit up southern Norway skies on Sunday, creating a spectacular sound and light display as it rumbled across.

The meteor travelled at 15-20 km per second and lit up the night sky for about five to six seconds, say experts, adding that a bit of it may have hit Earth, possibly not far from the capital, Oslo. Analysis of the meteor suggests it could have weighed at least 10kgs. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

Such meteor strikes are rare, but one did cause widespread damage and injure at least 1,600 people when it crashed down in Russia's Ural Mountains in 2013.
