DESCRIPTION

Mystery Dirt Meteorite. A seven inch cube of compacted dirt appeared in my back yard today, with no explanation as to where it came from. There’s no evidence of it being thrown over the rather high fence into our yard from next door. No evidence of anyone entering our gated back yard. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of impact, so however it got there, it didn’t drop far.

Some pieces have broken off and are strewn a half foot or so to one side. Also, the dirt cube seems split, as if it were slabs, or perhaps the cube split sideways on impact? The dirt seems to be potting soil, and there looks to be thin roots all through it. It was raining most of the day today, but the dirt meteorite is partly dry in places.
I realize this isn’t on par with Mothman or anything, but, seriously: wtACTUALf??
