Space Junk hits New Jersey home

From Space.com

A family from Freehold Township, New Jersey was surprised to learn that what they thought was a meteorite had fallen from orbit to land in their upstairs bathroom. Originally thought a meteorite, it has since been confirmed as a stainless steel alloy, scrap iron, if you will. No one is sure how it got into orbit in the first place. This will be an interesting one to follow, for sure.

That's pretty funny. How big was it?

Ooops! That might be nice to know, huh? It was the size of a can of soda.
