Mystery today surrounded an unidentified flying object that smashed through the roof of a Hawke's Bay house, landing on the lounge floor yesterday.
It was first thought a small mechanical part had fallen from a small plane, but the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has discounted that theory.
CAA spokesman Bill Sommers told NZPA an aeronautical engineer studied the part and found it was not from a plane.
He also discounted the object coming from outer space.
"It's not the kind of thing you'd want to put into space because it's too heavy," Mr Sommer said.
The metal object had rust on it, was about 11cm long, 4.5cm wide and weighed about a kilogram, Mr Sommer said.

The mysterious object that ploughed through the roof of a house in Whakatu in Hawke's Bay, has been identified.
The chunk of iron was originally thought to be from a light plane that had flown near the house at the time.
Police now believe the object is part of a wood splitter machine. Sergeant Bob Gordon of Hastings says the speed at which such a machine revs, could explain how the chunk of metal had smashed through the roof with force.

To me it looks like a break caliper/shim. Whatever it is, I don't think it's from space.
