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
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.
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
