Nora Muchanic says she was walking with her sister Jean on Silver Beach around 4 p.m. Friday when they came across a crater in the sand.
They dug out a black rock embedded in the bottom of the crater.
Was it a meteorite?
The American Meteorological Society received nearly 580 reports from across the East Coast about a bright falling fireball last Wednesday.
Nora and her sister took the rock to the Franklin Institute where they determined it was not a meteorite, but a piece of coal.
Those who were hoping for another outcome are saying: Bah, humbug!
