I love all the people that have gone around correcting anyone that called this a meteor, not a meteorite since it hit the ground. They come off sounding like shady insurance reps.
Man: No, your policy says that if a meteor destroys my home I am covered, I demand the payment you owe me.
Insurance rep: Eyup, it does, but since it actually hit your house it's technically a "MeteorITE". so you ain't covered.
