Farmer Finds Meteorite
Scientists are analyzing an extremely rare meteorite found by a farmer in Missouri.
In a very small town called Conception Junction one man discovered an unusually heavy stone buried in the side of a hill.
When trying to move the stone, he sawed off a piece of the rock.
He quickly realized this thing did not come from Earth.
This meteorite is one of only 20 that have ever been found in the United States.
This piece is believed to have been part of a much larger asteroid that landed on Earth many years ago.
Sliced and polished, this stone is worth $200 per gram.
That's a lot of money!
