right in front of me. I was sitting outside when I see this rock slam into the dirt. Its possible that a bird dropped it from the sky but that's not the reason why I am posting this on here. The rock looks strange and not like any rock i've seen before. What could this be?

I vote for it being a piece of space junk, like from a satellite or a rocket launch.
It looks metallic.

It does indeed seem to have the surface characteristics of a meteorite.

But that does not mean it should be hot. It's a long fall.

Very interesting, it may well be a meteorite, it would be interesting to have it looked at by a geologist. It's surface reminds be of old iron I find on my farm.

Also, it's a good thing you weren't sitting a couple feet forward ya know?

Good for you dude. Get it checked out by a museum or someone in the know.

True I realized that after posting and looking at the penny for scale.... it would cool in a second!

Oh yeah, he needs to have it appraised if he can find a qualified person. Of course, it's small, but still it's beautiful.

OP, look around on the net and see what other similar ones sell for.

Wow cool. I hope it is.

I'm gonna agree with everyone else, in that I think it looks meteoric. I'd take it to a university or something (if there's one near you) and get it looked at. Nice find!

OP: Im a mine Engineer. I have a bunch of Geo's at my bidding.
Surprisingly there are none available at this second - All in an exploration meeting - But as soon as its over i can have my buddy look at your pics. Hes worked in every corner of this planet. Has a PhD in geology and has practised for 30 years.
If your interested in hearing his opinion:
Is it possible to take a couple more real close ups of the rock and email them to me? If available even with the use of a magnifying glass to see the grain size?

Is it iron?

Have you tested it with a magnet?

That may tell you something about it at least.

Nice find. If that is indeed a Meterorite, Mama could very well be close behind.

But lets not jump to that conclusion just yet.

I just tested it now. The rock started to move when the magnet got close
