Meteorite

New Zeeland media reports a near catastrophe between a Chile Airliner Airbus and a meteorite.

The passenger airlines was on its way from Santiago de Chile to Auckland, New Zeeland when a falling meteorite pass and a distance of 8 km in the South Pacific Ocean. A huge piece of fire ball shooting down from the sky. The plitos says that the noise was so loud and intense that you could nor hear the engines of the Airbus. Afterall the aircraft landed safely in Auckland.

Expert believe that it might be the Russians de-activating old space craft still in use over the South Pacific.

I'm so pedantic...

I think that would be a meteor. It only becomes a meteorite after it strikes ground.

I read it on CNN that it was space junk from one of the Russian spacecrafts returning from orbit.

I once saw lots of metorites in a cave. It's weird how they got there.
