"Right Through the Roof! The Wethersfield Meteorites" was an exhibition featuring two meteorites which had struck homes in Wethersfield, Connecticut on two separate occasions. The first, the size of a peach, struck the home of Wethersfield resident Paul Cassarino in 1971; and the second, the size of a grapefruit, struck the home of Wetherfield residents, Bob and Wanda Donahue, in 1982. Martin Prinz, curator and chairman of the Museum's Department of Mineral Sciences, characterized the likelihood of such occurrences as extremely rare. Both meteorites, known as Wethersfield (1971) and Wethersfield (1982) were classified ordinary chondrites of the type L6 and were on view in the Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites of the American Museum of Natural History from November 30, 1983 through March 31, 1984.
