“This isn’t the smoking gun – This is the bullet!!!” (quote by Bob White)
I first saw this on a new UFO Files special on the History Channel, and was intrigued. We started to discuss it on this thread, but I thought it
warranted it’s own.
Bob White of Reeds Spring, Mo. claims this piece of metal was ejected from a UFO during a sighting he had in 1985. He has put out adds to sell it and
wants $10 million dollars for it!
White and a friend were driving from Denver to Las Vegas on a desolate highway near the Colorado-Utah border. It was 2 or 3 a.m., he said, and White
was sleeping in the passenger seat. At one point, his friend woke him up and pointed out a strange light in the distance. White didn't think much of
it and went back to sleep.
Then his friend woke him up again. This time, White said, the lights were blinding.
He got out of the car and stared, dumbfounded. The object was about 100 yards in front of him, he said, "and it was huge ... absolutely huge."
In time, he said, the lights bolted toward the sky and connected with a pair of neon, tubular lights — "the mother ship," White guesses now. And
just like that, he said, the entire contraption zipped eastward through the Colorado sky and disappeared.
"What I saw," White said, "was not of this Earth."
As the craft flew away, White said, he noticed an orange light falling to the ground. A locator probe? Something that simply broke off? It was red hot
when he reached it, he said, but in time it cooled enough to pick up. White shoved the object into the trunk of the car.
The object is about 7-1/2 inches long and shaped like a teardrop. It has a coarse, metallic exterior and weighs less than 2 pounds. It looks a bit
like it could be a petrified pine cone and is composed primarily of aluminum.
He has spent $200,000 having it analyzed by several labs including Los Alamos. According to Bob White “The Los Alamos report concluded the object
was not a meteor but an unknown object of unknown origin.” Another lab, New Mexico Tech concluded that it is nothing special and comes close to a
well-known alloy called Aluminum 360, and did not contain any unknown material. But it doesn’t match the alloy perfectly.
There are 9 elements in 360 ... and one is tin .. No tin in the White metal, but there are 22 elements in it found by NIDS 14 more than a 360

The shape and scaling appears to me that it was formed while melted and falling from the sky. Of course the first thing that comes to mind is that it
is a piece of space junk re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere. It couldn’t be from a jet plane, because even from an altitude of 50,000 feet would
not be enough to melt it.
Another possibility is it could be a meteor, and the lights he saw were this thing re-entering the atmosphere. But the problem with this is that
aluminum does not occur in it’s pure form naturally. It has to be smelted from Bauxite and purified to even come close to 85% composition.
Aluminum Bauxite Mining
Bauxite is a naturally occurring form of aluminum ore. It consists of 45-60% aluminum oxide, 12-30% water, and various other impurities. Bauxite is
typically mined in open-pits and either processed into alumina near the mining operation, or shipped to smelting markets around the world for
That means it is an object that doesn’t occur naturally. So maybe it is a piece of space junk? Well the one thing that makes me think otherwise is
this isn’t the first object found like this. Another similar object was recovered in Denmark in the 1940’s! There is a picture of it also in the
link provided, under the add for his book.
And the source of the other object was… *drum roll*… a flying saucer!
I would like to see the report on the other object and whether they are allowed access to the other piece and do an analysis of it as well. I will
continue to look for the report, and will add more if I find anything. If the composition of both objects would match, this would be phenomenal,
because back in the early Forties, there wasn’t any space junk! I don’t know if this is for real, but I thought I’d share it with you.
