-- 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
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
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
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,
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.
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.
