Unknown object falls through the roof of a Woburn business
WOBURN, Mass. -- Is it a mysterious meteorite? That's the big question, after some sort of object flew through the roof at a local business in Woburn.
Oddly enough, that store sells stones.
J. Kelly Beatty, of Sky and Telescope in Cambridge, examined the rock. He is only one-third positive that it is a meteorite.
The only recorded meteorite to fall in Massachusetts was in Northhampton in the 1960s. In the past 30 years, two meteorites fell through the roof of homes in Connecticut.
If it is a meteorite, it could be worth thousands of dollars and more since it fell through a roof.
Employees at Gerrity Stone, though, have said they do not intend to sell the rock if it is a meteorite.
A meteorite is always named after the place it fell. If this were a confirmed meteorite, it would be name the "Woburn Meteorite."
