NOVATO, Calif. (CNN/KTXL) - What a California woman thought was a heavy pine cone hitting her roof turned out to be piece of meteoric debris.
Lisa Webber says the object hit the roof of her Novato home Wednesday evening. When Webber searched her yard days later, she said she saw the rock. When a magnet stuck to it, she said she knew she was onto something.
A meteorite expert says it's worth $5,000-$10,000, but Webber says she's not interested in selling it.
"NASA gets the first crack at it. It's not about money, this is about science," said Webber.
A NASA scientist confirmed that the small rock is a piece of a flaming fireball from outer space. Webber says she plans to donate the rock to science.
