The odds of someone coming across or even being hit by a meteorite are considered small and miniscule. Despite this, Pauline Aguss seemed to buck the odds when she was struck by a meteorite fragment while hanging out her laundry.
While hanging her laundry, Aguss felt a pain coming from her arm, when she noticed a cut. "It looked black, and peculiar. I went indoors and put a plaster on." The next day, her husband found an odd-shaped rock on the path near their yard.
Said Aguss, "That is when we realized it might have been a meteorite and now, after talking to people who know about these things, we are 99 percent certain." The odds of being hit by a meteorite are billions to one.
