Around 11:15 p.m. last night, Steve Bell of Sioux City was in his car at a stop sign near Lakeport Commons when he heard a loud bang and glass break.
Immediately he thought it was a gunshot and took off.
He then parked in the Hy-Vee gas station near by and noticed a dent in the top of his car.
About fifteen minutes later he returned to the stop sign where the incident happened and was shocked by what he saw.
"We found this rock right here in the middle of the street," Bell said. "When we got there, the rock was too hot to the touch. This rock, whatever it is, fits that perfect dent over the top of our truck."
Besides just being very hot, bell said there was a strong odor coming from the rock as well.
Now, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) , the Perseid meteor shower was taking place last night, starting around 11 p.m.
The same time Bell got the dent in the top of his car.
