Was it or was it not a meteor?

That’s what they’re trying to figure out in Wolcott.

Police say just before 10:30 Saturday morning, resident Larry Beck called them to report that a baseball sized rock had crashed through the roof of his home on Williams Court the night before.

Police say Beck thought a rafter had broken.  It was after checking the attic that he noticed a hole in the roof.

Initially it was believed the rock was a piece of runway concrete from a plane’s landing gear.

However, police were informed yesterday of a meteorite shower that had taken place Friday night.

In addition the the New England regional FAA office, the Peabody Museum in New Haven has been contacted to deter if the rock is, in fact, a piece of meteor.
