CM, as most will say, pictures are hard to tell. However, from my experience (And I'm not an expert by any means) but it does not look like a meteorite. The huge "hole" in the middle of your window looks like that of something man-made or from Earth. Check out the link or do a search on the net of Meteorite wrongs and compare yours with other that have been thought meteorites. And welcome to the forum, there are a lot of knowledgeable people here with great insight to meteorites and hunting them. Best of luck, Jason. ;)

Hi,

Nice try and great pictures. However, this is 100% NOT a meteorite....sorry. It is Slag like - probably slag. I usually don't answer these type of questions on forums since usually everyone else will and I don't have to be the bad guy. In this case though since only two people answered and one said likely yes and one said likely no I decided to answer.

Keep on hunting you will find one!
