A woman in Canada narrowly missed being struck by a meteorite that crashed through her roof and landed on her pillow.

Ruth Hamilton, a resident of Golden, British Columbia, was asleep in her bed on the night of Oct. 3 when she was jolted awake by an explosive bang, as something plummeted through the roof and showered her with debris, Hamilton told Victoria News on Oct. 8.

She jumped out of bed and turned on the light, discovering a rock lying nestled between her pillows, right next to the spot where her head had been moments earlier.

The object was about the size of a fist and weighed about 2.8 pounds (1.3 kilograms), The New York Times reported on Thursday (Oct. 14).

Each year, thousands of fast-moving space rocks survive their fiery passage through Earth's atmosphere to strike the planet's surface as meteorites, though most of these cosmic projectiles go unnoticed and undiscovered, according to Live Science's sister site Space.com.

And very few people in recorded history are as close to a meteorite at the moment of impact as Hamilton was.

A team of scientists are now going to talk with Hamilton about her experience and search for other pieces to figure out the meteor’s path while in Earth’s orbit so they know from where it originated.

They think it came from the solar system’s main asteroid belt, CBC News reported. A second meteorite that weighed about half a kilo or just over a pound, was found northeast of Golden.

Right now, the team from the University of Western Ontario has her chunk of space rock to study.
