A meteorite crashed through the roof of a house and landed near the living room of a man in Indonesia.

According to online site Mashable, a collector based in the U.S. purchased the it for about $1.8 million.

Josua Hutagalung said he was working outside his home in Sumatra when the meteorite landed.

“When I lifted it, the stone was still warm, and I brought it into the house,” Hutagalung said in an interview.

According statements from experts, the meteorite is estimated to be roughly 4.5 billion years old.

They classified it as CM1/2 M1/2 carbonaceous Chondrite, a rare variety of extraterrestrial rock.

Hutagalung said the money he got will help his family and a local church in his community.

Meanwhile, a couple in Arizona claimed they found a mysterious item from a fallen airplane in their backyard.

According to various online reports, Charlie and Jaclyn High said it looks like a service door.

“Saw some of the words and writing on it, and pretty immediately thought this fell from an airplane,” said Charlie High.

They said no one saw the item appear in their yard so they believe it fell out of the sky recently.
