Possible meteorite crashed through New Jersey homeowner’s roof
A peculiar incident occurred in Hopewell Township, Mercer County, on Monday when a metallic object, suspected to be a meteorite, plummeted through the roof of a local residence.
The object, measuring approximately six inches by four inches, caused significant damage upon impact.
Eyewitnesses reported the startling event, recounting the trajectory of the mysterious object.
“It came through here, hit the floor, ricocheted off to this part of the ceiling, and then finally came down and rested on the floor,” described one witness, illustrating the path taken by the object within the house.
Fortunately, the homeowner was present during the incident but miraculously emerged unharmed.
Although shaken by the unexpected turn of events, the homeowner expressed gratitude for their safety.
The exact origin and composition of the object are yet to be determined.
Experts are expected to examine the metallic fragment closely to ascertain its nature and potential link to celestial phenomena.
Authorities have been alerted and will collaborate with relevant scientific institutions to conduct a thorough investigation.
While meteorite incidents are relatively rare, they can cause substantial damage when they make contact with structures or the Earth’s surface.
The incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable and awe-inspiring nature of our universe, which occasionally brings celestial visitors crashing down to our planet.
Further updates on the investigation will be provided as more information becomes available.
