Tennis players stumble across stolen meteorite

Last updated 6 years ago by UtrechtCentral.com

The stolen meteorite that went missing from the Sonnenborgh Museum earlier this week was spotted on Thursday by two tennis players. Authorities confirmed the finding on Friday.

[gard align=”right”]The amateurs were well into their game when one of their balls flew the fence and landed in a nearby bush. Upon closer inspection, they stumbled across a plastic bag containing a wooden box with the astral specimen inside. The rock is believed to be over 16 billion years old.

The thieves, who stole the safe on Monday, apparently didn’t expect to find a meteorite which is probably why they discarded their booty to prevent ever being caught.

The meteorite was first sighted in the small Dutch town of Serooskerke in 1925.
