If you’ve ever asked for the moon, here’s your chance to own a piece of it.

This lunar meteorite, known as (boo-ag-bah) “Buagaba” or “The Moon Puzzle,” is going up for auction.

It’s made from six pieces of the actual moon that fit together and weigh almost 12 lbs.

Experts says it shot off the surface of the moon and traveled a quarter-million miles to earth. It was ultimately found in Northwest Africa.

The meteorite is valued at $500,000- the perfect gift this holiday season for someone who is literally out of this world.
