Apparent meteorite crashes through roof of home: "It was warm"https://www.yahoo.com/news/apparent-meteorite-crashes-roof-home-132553636.html
A New Jersey family said they are thankful everyone is safe after an apparent meteorite crashed through their roof on Monday afternoon.
According to a statement released by the Hopewell Police Department, a "metallic object believed to be a meteorite" struck the roof of a ranch-style home. The oblong object, which police described as being about four inches by six inches, went through the roof and ceiling of the home before it "impacted the hardwood floor" and came to a stop.
An image released by police showed the space rock next to a damaged, cracked floor.
Suzy Kop, a resident of the home, told CBS Philadelphia that meteorite landed in her father's bedroom, but no one was home.
Police said that they have contacted several other agencies to positively identify the object and for help "safeguarding the residents and the object." They said that the object could be connected to an ongoing meteor shower called the Eta Aquariids, an event related to Halley's Comet that is visible from mid-April to late May and usually peaks around May 5 each year.
