Man Finds Iron Meteorites in His Garden

HARDEMAN COUNTY, Tenn. -- Chris Wooden says the Discovery Channel showed him what he had in his front yard wasn't just a rock.

"I didn't know what it was. It was covered up with rust so I just threw it to the side and kept working," said Wooden.

Now he believes that rust rock is actually a meteorite that made it to earth. He says the magnetization and them metal quality told him what it was.

Wooden explained ever since he found that first meteorite in his garden last year, he has kept an eye out. He was shocked to find another 91 pound meteorite in a field, but said he is even more shocked at how much they are worth.

A quick internet search will show meteorites go for about two dollars per gram. The 92 pound one he found could be worth more than $80,000.

He says all the land behind him could be a gold mine.

"You gotta think ain't nobody over here looking for 'em all down through here is nothing but hills, holes, you have to think about it," said Wooden.

Wooden says he does hope to sell the meteorites.
