Chicken Licken was RIGHT!!!

It appears as though the sky IS falling!

A young boy in Germany had the chance of a lifetime…to catch a falling star (of sorts).  From SKY NEWS:

Gerrit Blank was on his way to school when he saw a massive fireball heading straight towards him from the sky.  The white-hot meteorite bounced off the schoolboy’s hand and hit the ground so hard it left a foot-long crater in the tarmac – as well as a three-inch scar on his hand.

The young man explained it this way:

“At first I just saw a large ball of light and then I suddenly felt a pain in my hand.  Then, a split second after that, there was an enormous bang like a crash of thunder.  The noise that came after the flash of light was so loud that my ears were ringing for hours afterwards.  When it hit me it knocked me flying and then was still going fast enough to bury itself in the road.”

It reminds me of that old Perry Como song:

Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day

…or not
