Meteor fragment found in Novato
NOVATO, Calif. (KGO) -- NASA scientists have recovered the first chunk of the spectacular meteor seen streaking across the Bay Area sky Wednesday night.
It apparently hit the roof of a house in Novato, bounced a couple of times and ended up on the ground.
The homeowner says she heard a loud thud that night. Lisa Webber says she remembers because the house was quiet, she had just turned off the TV after the Giants game was in a rain delay.
She found the meteor fragment in her backyard a couple days later.
Webber contacted scientists with the SETI Institute in Mountain View who have confirmed the piece of rock is indeed a small chunk of the meteor.
