I love stories like this. Things falling from the sky like bullets from God. Thankfully these projectiles didn’t hit any human targets.

Reminds me of that great song by DEVO called Space Junk.

– SMiles

“Loud. Loud enough [that] you could hear it, maybe, a block or two away,” recalls Reese. “I’m surprised it didn’t break our glass. That’s how loud it was.”

Something had come hurtling out of the sky, and crashed through the roof of a nearby doctor’s office, landing in an empty examination room.

“I thought something fell in Dr. Gallini’s office,” explained his partner, Dr. Frank Ciampi. “I thought a bookshelf fell on him, so I ran out and saw that he was okay. And then I looked to the left and saw the debris in the hallway.”

The debris was smoldering and metallic. The two physicians puzzled over the items. Whatever had come through the roof had broken into several pieces. The two doctors speculated that part of an airliner had come off and fallen through their roof. A nearly circular hole was punched through the building’s roof.

An acquaintance suggested the possibility of a meteorite, so the debris was sent to the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum in nearby Washington, D.C.
