It seems that in the suburbs of Auckland New Zealand a house has been struck by a Meteorite.
The hit is a billions-to-one event which adds thousands to the value of the grapefruit-sized rock which plummeted through the tiled roof of Phil and Brenda Archer's Ellerslie home at 9.30am.
Well, if you hit the link and see the picture - it looks a bit bigger than a grapefruit to me - but what do I know?
The rock hit her leather couch and bounced back up to the ceiling before rolling under the computer.
Oddly enough the insurance company is going to pay for damages. I would've thought they'd be looking for a way to say it wasn't covered - so good for them! Plus, it looks as if they'll be able to sell it to a collector for a substantial sum.
Even if they make a bit of profit from it, I would not want the hassle of getting things patched up. They'll earn every penny of the windfall before things are back to normal.
