Raining Rocks: Strange, Metallic "Stone" Crashes Through The Ceiling of Pennsylvania Business

Raining Rocks: Strange, Metallic “Stone” Crashes Through The Ceiling of Pennsylvania Business


Employees of a Pennsylvania warehouse had a bizarre surprise awaiting them when they clocked in to work on Friday morning: a strange object in the middle of the floor and a hole in their ceiling.

Workers inspected the sharp, metallic “stone” and its crash site, a small crater in their concrete floor. When they looked up, they saw that the object had punctured their steel ceiling, leaving and 8″ by 8″ hole shining light into the warehouse.

So, what the heck is the weird hunk of metal, anyway? The verdict is still out. Considering the speed at which the object careened through the building, the owner of the company thinks it could possibly be a meteor, but according to CBS Local, so far no tests have been conducted to prove his theory.


If it starts rattling, run.

Check out the images of the shiny stone and its aftermath below, and let us know where you think the object originated. Share your thoughts with us on Facebook, on twitter @WhoForted, or leave a comment!

Looks metallic, but that’s about all I can say about it.

I always love stories like this; weird thing falls from sky, no one knows what it is, local man baffled. Classic Charles Fort. I don’t think we’ll get any “big answers” from this, but it’s nice to know people are still interested in this kind of thing.

Looks like a fragment of a metallic meteorite. Most likely Nickle/Iron.

A meteorite seems obvious but I would think a meteorite of that size would’ve left a bigger crater in the floor or at least broken and cracked more of the concrete.

maybe passing through the roof slowed it down somewhat.

What about any fire or scorching caused by entry? That thing had to be hot coming in if it were a meteorite.

I’d considered that but without knowing the surface area of the object, I can’t determine drag and, therefore, know it’s terminal velocity as it hit the roof. I would’ve liked to have seen a picture of the roof hole.
