    I agree that it does look like a meteorite, but I don't see how 
    falling through the roof of a house could create a formation like 
    that shiny groove. It took a lot of energy to form that, and it looks 
    like the application of a machine.
    Perhaps however, while the object was wandering around in space, some 
    small object struck it a glancing blow and dug out that groove. That 
    would have been quite unusual. Have any (other) meteorites been found 
    with similar features?
    It must be quite heavy.
