should be easy, I think I heard there's a leaf imprint on it. So, just go to a university and have it checked if the leaf is from earth. That would be the end of it.

I know.

Late last night and the night before,
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers, knocking at the door.
I want to go out, don't know if I can,
'Cause I'm so afraid of the Tommyknocker man...

Actually I'm going to concur lava. But who knows?

Yeah, i think it could be space debris and that guy needs to drain his pond or have a diver go look in it for that square object, that melted threw the ice.

Thanks for sharing, i'd say that it's an interesting case

I've found some articles about it:

Man Tries To Identify Mystery Object Found In Woods
Object Found Near Spot Where Man Saw Other Strange Item

-- A Wakefield man has a mystery in his living room, an object that looks kind of a like a rock but not quite, which might have fallen from the sky.
William McCarthy found the mysterious object that's about the size of a football and weighs about the same. But he said he can't figure out what it is or from where it came.

And after I started looking at it, I noticed all of the strange things that were in that lump
McCarthy said.

Some of the unusual features are a detailed leaf imprint on one side, and on the other side is a slash of what looks like red paint, but it won't scratch off, even with a knife.

I have a hard time believing that occurs naturally, especially since it's so nice and smooth and shiny
McCarthy said.

He said he found the object lying on the forest floor not far from his house -- and not far from where another strange thing happened three decades ago.

You've heard of hair-raising experiences? Well, they actually happen
McCarthy said.

Because the hair went right up on the back of my head.

In 1977, McCarthy found a giant square object melting into the thick ice of his frozen pond. He said the only place from which it could have come is the sky.

We go back to the object in the pond, and guess what? It wasn't there,
McCarthy said.

But there was this square hole the same size as the object had been.

He said the object was so hot that it melted through 12 inches of ice. He never retrieved it and still wonders what it was.

Now, 31 years later, he's wondering the same thing about the new object. McCarthy said he took the object to the fire department Thursday morning to make sure it wasn't radioactive. Firefighters tested it and gave it the all-clear.

Full story/sources:

The Wakefield incident

It was five degrees above zero and blizzarding in the remote New Hampshire town of Wakefield (pop. 1400) at noon on January 10, 1977. Horse farmer William McCarthy was looking out his window at the falling snow when he was surprised to see a hole in his pond. The pond, 105 by 75 feet, had been frozen solid just the day before, when McCarthy's horses had played over the surface. He put on his coat and went outside for a closer look.

The hole was perfectly round and cut smoothly through 14 inches of ice. Eight inches of slush surrounded the hole, suggesting that something had melted through. Peering into the hole and through the clear water underneath, McCarthy saw something that looked like a one-foot-square box. He stared at it long enough to remove any doubt in his mind that he was seeing what he thought he was seeing. He raced back to the house and brought family members over for a look. Then he went to the barn to pick up a rake, a hoe, and a pole, hoping to use them to haul the mysterious device to the surface.

Back at the pond McCarthy saw that the box seemed to have sunk three feet into the muck at the bottom. Frustrated in his attempt to retrieve the object, he called a friend, Bob Palmer, who arrived around 2:30 P.M. Concerned that they might be dealing with radioactive satellite or aircraft debris, Palmer notified the police who soon arrived in the company of a local Civil Defense (CD) representative. The Geiger coun­ter indicated a reading alarmingly above normal (three roentgens per hour versus normal background radiation of .001 roentgen). The McCarthys were warned to stay away from the water, and the CD man and the police left to inform their superiors. Half an hour later the police phoned with the news that State Deputy CD Director Weslie Williams would be coming to the farm to do further testing.

Sorry.. on anonymously because I somehow missed how to register. Try the link on different area, maybe you can get it there. The link is to the right on the home page under "most popular". And when I read the article, he did say that when the ice melted on the pond, he went looking for it and there was nothing there in the pond. I wondered also if he was getting airplane jettison stuff.

They only recovered 35% of the Space Shuttle Columbia debris. Could it be part of that? KOMO is Seattle I think. Most of the Columbia debris fell in Texas.

Idunno, just a thought.

(Edit) I don't know why but my first impression was that of a melted car-seat cover. Maybe its because I threw a vinyl car seat cover into a bonfire once and it left a similar looking result.

Pretty cool find! Don't know what it could be. But very cool.

Looks like a chunks of asphalt....

Maybe when they were making the road, someone kicked off this chunk of fresh asphalt while it was still warm....Then melted something red, and a leaf made an inprint on the tar......

Doesnt seem so weird to me....

I bet the reporter smelled fresh road.....

He didn't want to spoil the story.....

I will say that the leaf inprint bumped me a little but it was interesting to hear about the square object in the pond...that was the reason I posted it because it was quite ironic.

Ya we wouldn't want the experts lol....lets see if you see strange things you are in need of medication...if you see dead people more medication and if you hear them well God help you get a free vacation without going far and the Government will cover the cost*lol* ......better to shut up and it can be whatever you want it to be. Been who you mention facts or your reality to. Better to talk to someone open minded like say some in the Paranormal Research Field or a Spiritualist Psychic
GL....meds can be good rofl

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I think i know what this is. It looks just like hematite. A type of iron ore, sometimes sold online as meteorite pieces.

Check it out brethren. _CPNJ

The artifact that the older man has seems to be something other than just volcanic ash. Many geologists and angry skeptics claim that things like these are not meteorites.

I've contacted some scientists about things like these and they seem so jaded that they don't want to believe that any of these come from space. But the ones I have are made of at least a little bit of iron. I found them with a strong magnet.

It's frustrating when people see something first-hand and still don't believe it.

Cool, thanks for digging that up Internos.
So, riddle me this ATSers. Does an objest that has been in space for years emit radiation after reentering the earth's atmosphere? If so, how much?
By the looks of the article, it seems that the object in the pond isn't there anymore. It probably was so hot that it heated the pond enough to melt the ide...either that or maybe the radiation melted the ice? Can radiation do that even if it isn't giving off lots of heat?
I am wondering if the "trench" may have been caused by the method of retreival...if they cut a new hole in the ice and pulled the object out of the water with a rope, it could have dug the trench. Didn't sound like they used any heavy machinery...interesting.

When I was a kid, in the pre-internet 1970s, I occasionally found pornographic magazines in the woods. It was always a mystery to me why people threw it away!

The mystery object here is pretty inconclusive though and certainly not as attractive as naked women. As it stands, there's so many things it could be before some 'exotic explanation' needs to be found.

Looks lagit to me but I'd be more curious what the square object was that melted in his pond 30 years ago. That guy should go down and check it out. Who knows, there might be a link between them?

posted on Oct, 15 2008 @ 05:02 AM
Not to interesting. But the video on thousands of squids washing up dead was pretty strange. Go back and check it out!

i thought it was asphalt waste. a contractor could have disposed of it in those woods after a nearby road was constructed, maybe.

if that is correct, there are probably other clumps of it in the same area, but covered with vegetative growth.

as for that photo of the "large square"-- i cant make out the detail on that. it looks like a sand trap, but that 'sand trap' may be the actual object, and the pond consumes most of the photo.

I was thinking igneous rock...
Could still be just that, but without touching it myself, no way to be sure.
Igneous rocks are very porous (sp?), and therefore are very light.
Would explain why it weighs about the weight of a football.
I think this is thread is reaching, but without examination, who knows, I could be wrong...
Anyone send divers into the pond to look for the other object?
