Mysterious Booms in Connecticut Yield Wolcott, CT Meteorite 19APR2013
 Booms from about 50 miles away in Ledyard, CT and several others from 20-30 miles away seem to have been the result of a meteoroid entering the atmosphere followed by a meteorite hitting a house in Wolcott, CT on April 19, 2013 at approximately 10'00 pm EDT. Police departments in Ledyard, East Haven, Milford, Madison, Branford, and Guilford all had calls from the public reporting booms being heard in their neighborhoods.
  According to a report by CBS Channel 5 - WOLCOTT, CT (WFSB), Larry Beck has found a baseball-sized meteorite? that crashed through his roof.
  I have viewed the photos of the rock and have determined that it is indeed a meteorite! Congrats to Mr. Beck. Unfortunately, most cases of a meteorite hitting one's house turn out to be a curse with a resulting flood of phone calls by the media and hounding meteorite seekers. Best of luck to Mr. Beck! -LunarMeteoriteHunter, Tokyo, Japan
