The terminal velocity of a meteorite falling straight down toward Earth is called "dark flight."

What the video above shows is the first time this has ever been captured on film, nearly striking the skydiver who was lucky enough to get this incredible footage.

According to geologist Hans Amundsen, the chances of this happening are "much less likely than winning the lottery three times in a row."
