On Friday night, the sky started falling over southern Yunnan province.
Video footage shows a fiery meteorite cutting an epic path through the night’s sky above the city of Jinghong. The meteor eventually burned up, sending a few chunks of meteorite crashing into the homes of villagers in Yunnan’s Menghai county.
Unfortunately for the villagers, they likely won’t be allowed to keep the space rocks, being compelled to turn them over to the proper scientific authorities.
After watching the video, Chinese netizens have been ready with their Avengers references, wondering, “Did Thor drop his hammer?”
