It was, then it wasn't, and now a rock found by a Novato woman last week has been re-classified as a meteorite.

Scientists first called the rock a meteorite, then called it just a rock because it lacked surface evidence it had ever been in space.

On Monday, a meteorite hunter found another rock looking almost exactly the same as the Novato one and scientists after comparing the two, determined they were both in fact from space.
