James Stirton of Cheepie, 130km from Charleville in southwestern Queensland, was heading out to feed cattle on his 40,500-hectare property when he came upon the bizarre-looking blackened ball.



Suspecting it was a piece of space junk, Mr Stirton contacted the Aerospace Corporation - a research arm of the US Government - to get some sort of confirmation.



He now believes the object is a helium tank wrapped in carbon fibre (similar to the red tanks depicted here) from a booster rocket used to launch communications satellites.

The truth is out there ... an Aussie farmer is on a mission to identify this bizarre blob - thought to be space junk - after it appeared on his property.

Wouldn't it be wild if it was from a shot down spy satellite . I can't believe more scientist are not jumping at the chance to check out possible space junk. Though it kinda looks like the big hay bales we have out here in ND when they catch on fire.

The chances of being struck by space junk are one in a trillion and the only person ever reportedly struck described it as feeling like a gentle tap on her shoulder.

And I love this quote:

"I know a lot of about sheep and cattle but I don't know much about satellites. "

Kinda reminds me of many (self included ) in this forum.

I didn't realise stuff like this could make it back to earth without burning up although it does look like it has gotten really hot on the side facing away from the camera causing all the carbon firbre to burn and peel off.

Where did Skylab come down? I remember Australians driving around with the beds of their pickups filled with junk.

The US space laboratory, Skylab I, plunged to Earth this evening scattering debris across the southern Indian Ocean and sparsely populated Western Australia.

The crazy thing is that skylab came down because of solar activity. It raises something in the atmosphere which causes items to fall out of orbit.
