The black rock that fell through a New Jersey family

A rock likely to be a meteorite crashed into a New Jersey home on Monday (May 8), damaging a bedroom but causing no injuries. 

No one was at Suzy Kop’s home in Hopewell Township, New Jersey, when the space rock made its entrance, according to CBS News Philadelphia (opens in new tab), which first reported the unusual event. The meteorite landed around 1 p.m. EDT, crashing through the roof and landing in the bedroom belonging to Kop’s father. Judging by the damage, the meteorite hit the floor, bounced to the ceiling, and came to rest in the corner of a room. The metallic rock measures about 4 inches by 6 inches (10 by 15 centimeters).
