UFO Or Meteor Crash New Jersey 2011

Are they here? It's a question asked in jest now that some people are wondering whether a strange visitor from another planet dropped by New Jersey last week, leaving a large hole in the ground.
Residents now believe it was a meteor, and have dubbed it the "Garden State's Meteor Mystery". Pictures and video show the impact zone along Lafayette lane in Basking Ridge, NJ.
The homeowners where the object landed weren't talking about the mystery tonight.
Neighbor Leo Labbe told PIX 11 News, "It's a mystery. We don't now what happened, I was in the house, and heard absolutely nothing, until I came out at 4 o'clock and there was an army of police cars and everything else here...we haven't a clue what happened...public service and the gas company came along and took all kinds of tests - they did sniff tests for gas - there was no electrical interruption. It's just a bizarre thing that I've never seen before and probably never will again!"
Bill McCain, an astronomer at the nearby Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium, told PIX 11 News, "It is a mystery, because I was over there and I saw it. All the details point towards something impacting. It also looks like there could have been an explosion from underground, but that's all been ruled out. The only thing left is an impact, but we can't find anything that actually caused the impact so it's really a mystery. I'm as baffled as you are at this point."
The unidentified flying object landed near the front of a local homeowner's yard. Early suspicions were that it was a space rock but that remains unclear, because whatever object made the huge hole left no clues. It left no metal, no scorch marks, and no animal tracks. So far investigators have ruled out something falling off a passing airplane, fireworks or kids playing a prank as the cause of the mysterious hole.
