Hole-y...

About 3:30pm last Saturday, neighbors heard a loud bang. Enormous holes were then found in the roof of an Australian couple's home. Emergency workers remain baffled.

One theory is that a rare weather phenomenon called a "microburst" was to blame, but another expert dismissed that explanation, as there were no thunderstorms in the area at the time. However, workers noted a similar incident some years past which was thought to be caused by microbursts and left similar damage.

Another expert said the damage could have been caused by debris falling from an airplane, meteorites, or even marble-sized space debris (from satellites, et.al.). This debris could be so small that authorities will never find it. The holes were large enough that workers responding to the call could stand in them!
