NOT MY TITLE
This probably isnt the best place for this article, but I figure you folks would know the answer a lot faster than some others as to what the heck these are and what they may have come off of.

A photo from article: You will have to go to link to see the photos as I cant seem to upload at the moment. They are pretty large steel appearing round balls. They look like to halves put together? Man made I'm assuming, Just not sure what they could have dropped out of or fell off. Thats why Im here

I also realize its a not such a good place to take news from but it does have video and pictures so there is that. This video below is not the same one at the link but does show others captured it. Note the video at the link captured two soaring over

Snippet from Article:

Reports have emerged that the mysterious object disintegrated above eastern Brazil and northern Peru.
The bizarre incident was accompanied with loud booms. People living in Larancahuani, in the region of Puno, Peru, were reportedly left terrified when three metallic spheres crashed down.

Assuming the sphere shown is what really came down, that looks like a welded tank from a sat. I'd be concerned about the contents since they're likely to have had propellants in them. Daily star is not noted as a good source though.

Yes I realize that and I did note that myself that I knew it wasn't the greatest of places for a news story. Non the less it appears to have happened.

Pressurized helium/nitrogen sphere?

Used to maintain pressure in fuel tanks. Also to purge oxygen from "free" space in tanks to lower the chance of fire or explosion.

Yes it did, I remember that too

Yeah, that's either a tank from a large sat or an upper stage. This has happened quite a bit actually. I second what someone said above about toxicity. I'd stay away despite how nifty it was. You might be able to claim right of salvage, though! Haha

Why didn't they burn up on re-entry?

They're enclosed inside the rocket. The shell probably burned and broke apart and they are strong enough to survive.

This!


Super dense stars are known to explode and contain trillions, which are ejected everywhere, causing a horrible mess.

As more and more nations put up satellites and send up rockets, we should see more debris falling from the sky.

Home insurance rates will go up, as many of these things start crashing down on rooftops on a regular basis.

There goes your home insurance premiums.
