Something fell from the sky last week and blew a 4-inch hole through the roof of a Colorado Springs bar. But no one has any idea what it was.
The owner of the Red Rock Lounge told The Gazette newspaper that she thought it was a meteorite. But five days after the incident, the owner and firefighters still hadn't found the object in the bar's ceiling tiles.
Firefighters heard the boom three blocks away. The hole was made from the roof down, which meant it wasn't caused by gunfire in the bar, and there's no burn marks indicating lightning.
Scientists say the object probably wasn't a meteorite because it wasn't preceded by a booming noise.
