I just came across this article and thought I would share it with everyone! I'm really bummed that there is not photo of the part they describe in the article, but it is very intersting to say the least. It has a lot of big agencies scratching their heads. Check it out

Interesting read although I suspect it's just a conventional air craft part. There are so many obscure parts on those things probably only a handful of people would be able to identify it.

I've heard stories of frozen fecal matter crashing through people's roof, so I guess it could have been worse.

Metal Object

Here's a picture of the object in this news story. Looks like something from the railroad to me. Interesting story to say the least. I'm glad no one was hurt or even killed by that big chunk of metal.

If you knew the shear level of space junk floating around in orbit, your head would spin off.

Is that re-entry burn marks on the bottom of that object? Looks like the metal is a bit melted at that point.

I would be talking to NASA/JPL about a parts list to all of the known objects in our out of operation currently in orbit around the planet.

Some observers have identified the part as coming from an industrial hammer, made of cast iron, and used in demolition, grinding, and recycling. The holes hold large hex bolts for fixing the plate to the hammer mechanism.

The working theory is that the demolition hammer was working on a site nearby and hit another harder object and violently sheared off, flew through the air and crashed through the guy's house.

An industrial accident - *shtuff* happens!?

Aircraft (including the unidentified kind) generally don't use, imo, cast iron as part of their construction - though I guess it could have 'fallen' from the wheel well of a passing plane.

In the sory linked to be SolarSkye, in the comments at the bottom, there are two people who are pretty convinced its a part from a tub grinder, for chipping wood. The bolt holes are apparently to attach the part to a big drum. If they hit a metal pipe or somesuch they tend to shear off with a lot of force. Maybe enough to send it hundreds of feet into the air.

It has a serial number on it, maybe its to make it fly?

That sounds good. ( A hammer ) But what would make it look like it's been melted around the edges? I guess if used for a long period of time and friction, one would end up looking like that. From now on they need to change those hammers when they start getting that bad

from the article

"It doesn't look very 'space-y,"' said Henry Kline, a spokesman for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

This isn't exactly a UFO.... it is falling debris.

I also think this was previously discussed here....

Ya know, when I saw the picture of the part I thought, "That thing looks like it's gone through re-entry!..."

But now that this is an IFO (behold the power of the Internet!
), I guess it's not a case of "melted" as much as "had the holy living crap bashed out of it".

Aaaaaand just because I took the time to find it...

The way I see it, no one will want to claim it because they would probably have to pay for damages.

The man will try to claim damage on his homes owners In. and he will probably be told it was an act of God.

Finally, a clear picture of a UFO. Although this would more properly be identified as a projectile

If I were that family I would get the local ambulance chaser lawyer to hire an engineering firm to figure out where it came from.

Those hammers in the PDF that you linked to IAttackPeople, look like they're melted already. That explains that. What, is this the fastest solved "UFO" case in ATS history?

posted on Jul, 18 2007 @ 02:17 PM
Just ask the internet. A friend of mine always says " Ask God " which means google it. I'd say this case is solved. Good job everyone.

Thanks for the PDF catalog IAttackPeople

Why does the New York City metro area have so many incidents?
In the last few years we've had two items crashing through roofs
of homes, 2 large passenger jets crash, a transformer explosion,
and of course 9.11.2001. I suppose if you like excitement of all
kinds, the greater NY/NJ metroplex is the place to be.

Nah, it took a whole 40 minutes for the first mention of a hammer.

The videos of celestial objects are often solved in 5 minutes or less
