In the vicinity of a village in Namibia, a large metal ball is dropped from the sky. Now the authorities speculate about the origin of the object and also want to NASA for help.

One might have fallen from heaven metal ball is on the Namibian authorities mystery. The six-pound ball with a diameter of about 35 centimeters was found near a village in the north, about 750 kilometers from the capital Windhoek, as the director of forensic science in the country, Paul Ludik said. "Village officials and residents of a nearby police station several small explosions in about three kilometers away have heard. Five days later, they then have the round metal object found."

The ball is hollow and consists of two halves welded together, said Ludik. It was found 18 meters away from the point was, where she had been hit - a 33 inch deep and twelve feet wide crater. The ball was therefore already found in mid-November, in the last few weeks but initially still under investigation. Since the authorities could not identify the ball should now the U.S. space agency NASA and the European Space Agency ESA are switched on, said Ludik. "It is possible that this round object that is set up in Namibia, comes from a space vehicle."

could a hollow metal ball welded together fall from space, make a 12ft creator and remain intact? did you translate yourself?

It's a Lens flare, Chinese Lantern, falling star, or a planet who just had enough. Hmm, so that's what it looks like. Don't dare say the word Orb. HAHA

Google Translate - in german: 33 centimeter (about one foot) deep - and four meter (around 13 FT...) wide

Mythbusters cannon ball range nearby ?


Joking aside, this thing reminds me of old sea-mines.

I guess if it would come from space it would look more rugged.

How much does it weigh? I spent 2 years in Namibia as a child and I remember my brother swinging one of these around by a rope - it broke and smacked me in the shin shin. Still have the dent as a reminder. It was an old grey hollow metal buoy (paint worn or weathered off?) - it even had the same attachment for the chain or cable as the one in the pic.

Like this?
metal buoy 1

or this?

metal buoy 2

That could be one of those you were talking about. the welded rings look burned but the whole ball doesnt look like it was falling from sky. That the crater is not so deep could mean it impacted on a sharp angle, like a cannonball would

It's a mini death star who took a wrong turn!

In all seriousness, i don't think it's gonna take that long till they find out it's part of a satallite or rocket.

Alien eggs!!
It kind of looks like those sphere things that suddenly hiss and open up to reveal some kind of creature.
Or the metal spheres that Magneto uses to travel in (circa X-Men Evolutions).
I'm sure it'll be explained as pieces of a satellite.
It would be funny though to see Magneto step out of it. Funny for about two seconds until he started using metal against us.

It's fireworks, move along...

In all seriousness, though, this appears to be manmade, yes?

Looks like it could be a tank associated with a rocket or terrestrial-origin spacecraft.

Who knows? It would be nice to have some proof that it actually fell from the sky.

Its obvious. Its a musketball. For a giant alien race.

This SNL skit was hilarious. I cant find a copy of the video. But the script is still really funny. And it explains my theory.

This object does not look like it fell from the sky to me. Wouldn't there be scorch marks? The bottom of it in the picture looks like it is encrusted with dried earth, as if it was in a mud hole that dried up and someone dug it out. I think the hollow metal float theory above is very plausible.

How do you know they didn't move it? And that's why we don't see the crater it left.

I mean, it could be possible that they moved it from the original site that fell at.
