A metallic object of unknown origin broke through the roof of a Monmouth County home at around 9 PM on Tuesday night. The object is rock-like in appearance and weights "nearly as much as a can of soup".
Police have enlisted the help of unidentified agencies to identify the unusually dense object and hope to have an answer in 72 hours. It was confirmed that it is not radioactive nor is it an aircraft part.
According to astronomy professor Carlton Pryor of Rutgers University, 20-50 rock-like objects fall out of the sky every day. "It's not all that uncommon to have rocks rain down from heaven. These are usually rocky or a mixture of rock and metal."
