    Meteorite Crashes Through Roof of a House in Connecticut


    A rock that crashed through a house in Connecticut last weekend has been confirmed to be a meteorite.

    Homeowner Larry Beck called police in Wolcott, CT at 10:30 a.m. on April 20, 2013 and said a baseball-sized rock crashed through his home the night before, causing damage to his roof and pipes in the attic before cracking the ceiling in his kitchen. Police reported that people from several towns in the area had called to report a loud boom that rattled windows last Friday evening.

    Reports say that at first, police thought the rock was a broken piece of airport runway concrete that had dropped from a plane when landing gear was being lowered. The home is near two airports.

    After examining the object on Tuesday, Stefan Nicolescu, the collections manager for the Mineralogy Division at the Yale Peabody Museum confirmed it was in fact a meteorite, likely a chondrite.

    If only something like that could happen to me . . without actually harming my body, of course.

    I'd put the thing on auction . .and go shopping after a week.

    Reminds me of the movie "Donnie Darko" where it goes through the roof of his room and kills him.
