Seems like a pretty strange, golf-ball-sized object was recovered after it came through the roof of a NJ home. It's pretty weird looking, definitely metallic and no one knows what it might be as yet.

Full Story

Personally, I've never seen a meteorite this metallic looking. Although it doesn't look like the object Bob White insists is an alien artifact
Bob White's Alien Poo, it is metallic. I guess we'll just have to wait for the analysis that is underway.

ACtually, it looks like a pretty standard meteorite to me, and I'm sure that's what it will turn out to be.

Definitally a meteorite.

Hmmm... you sound very sure of that.

Care to expand on what you are saying?

Why could it not be a piece of our space junk which finally fell back to Earth?

there was a meteor shower that night. that would point to the obvious, no?

Why is it so obvious?

Is there a re-entry ban on space junk during meteor showers?

I'd prefer to wait the 72 hours for the 'official word' on what this metal golf ball is composed of.

Space Junk

wow, that looks like a nice piece of gold right there......................

obvious would say a meteorite... buttttt ive found out that the obvious turns out to be anything but as of late!


Lets assume it is for now, being it came from '' up there ''

but just imagine for a second... if it hatched

if you walk thru a hail storm and get bonked on the head with an object, odds are it was a chunk of hail.

if you walk thru the rain and get wet, it is probably due to the rain and not someone with a hose.

if you pass thru a meteor shower and a rock that looks like a meteor crashes into your house, odds are it is a meteor.

what if a meteor falls duing a rain storm or hail?

'chances are' means there's a CHANCE

so stating you can have a definitive ANSWER is flawed..

but i agree, more than likely its a meteor, but lets just wait before we condem people for having a open mind

Exactly.


And there is just a minute possibility that it is space junk too.

I'd be willing to bet you a Papa burger and a root beer that it's just space junk, mainly because of the color and seemingly pure metal (unknown) composition of the object.

It could be, by aren't they classed as "meteors" in any case?

I'm guessing meteor or a frozen turd dropped from an airplane.

Good question.

I've always considered meteorites to be of extra-terrestrial origins, while space junk is just that... stuff we put up there and is now falling back.

However... they do look the same upon re-entry.


www.space.com...

When these objects fall back into Earth's atmosphere, which they inevitably do, they behave just like any other meteor, lighting up the sky.

A 1999 study estimated there are some 4 million pounds of space junk in low-Earth orbit, just one part of a celestial sea of roughly 110,000 objects larger than 1 centimeter -- each big enough to damage a satellite or space-based telescope

-snip-

In the first six months of 1999, 57 of the tracked objects re-entered Earth's atmosphere, according to Major Michael Birmingham of the U.S. Space Command. Birmingham said that 91 objects fell into the atmosphere in all of 1998, and 69 in 1997.

I did some googling before I posted this to see if I could find a meteorite picture that looked anything like this. I haven't. Has anyone else been able to find a picture that looks like this?


The article said ity was heavier than a typical metal object of its size which would rule-out a meteorite. It would be ideal if we knew whther it was magnetic or not.

New Jersey seems to have more than it's share of events like this. I seem to remember a couple of houses and a police car being struck by meteorites. I think the police car was in 1979.
