LORTON, VA (WWBT)--A northern Virginia doctor is cleaning up around the office after a meteorite smashed through the roof of his practice.
It went right through the two-story building sending pieces of wood, plaster and insulation flying.
A Smithsonian scientist confirmed that the more than half-pound rock was a meteorite and estimated it to be about four and a half billion years old.
The meteorite was probably traveling about 220 miles per hour when it struck the building.
