I posted this in the other metallball-thread, but since it seams to have halted; I've repeated it here:

It's gonna be jolly fun when the garbage transport ship hits the ground!

After reading someone else say they have seen similar items like this in Nambia, could it possibly be the Nambia Public Relations Department trying to get the word Nambia back in the world consiousness?

The hole part size was exaggerated to add excitement. They knew it didn't come from the sky and said "what the heck? Let's create some publicity."

Just another option.

Why do you post pics of buoys and say it's a buoy?

The ball is about the size of a football, basketball AT MOST (33cm)...which is far, far smaller than all the buoys in those pictures.

Could be space junk. There is alot of stuff orbiting up there. So much so...NASA has to constantly track thousands of pieces as they could be VERY lethal to the ISS or any sat's.

They appear to be some sort of storage tank ( obviously) Hey, if it is titanium maybe they are worth something?







I received these photos of space junk that had been stored at NORAD at one point in time (Space Control Center).

It seems obvious to me that this is a Pokeball. Of course the red and white paint was burned off as it came through the atmosphere. What I think will be truly interesting is what type of Pokemon it contains... I hope it's one of the cool ones.

A large metal ball that fell from space into the Namibian grasslands last month is not alien, officials say, but that's about all they know for certain about the object.


news.blogs.cnn.com...

Interesting. So they know for sure it is not alien, but don't have a clue what it is.

Anyone else see a bit of a logical gap here?

All that CNN article stated about the object is that it is made of a "sophisticated alloy known to man", it's hollow, and it has no markings besides the two bumps on the side.

So with to go with, how would they know for sure it's not alien?

It's obviously an alien cannonball. Don't see the confusion.

This was later found out to be a diver picked up by a waterspout from the sea,carried inland and then dropped into the tree when the storm lost it's power.


Nobody dives during storms. Visibility is crap and you would get thrown around like a rag doll from the swell.

Apparently, he was scooped up by waterbombers fighting a fire.

I think they chopped off the boobs of Janet Jackson and glued them together for the MTV incident.

I googled it and read the comments under the articles which included a link to pics of similar objects. Apparently it's a float and totally earthly!

A metal ball welded together seemingly hollow , the object may contain something very sinister or not.

It's actually a helium tank possibly from the Russian Salyut 7-Cosmos 1686 (Kosmos 1686) spacecraft assembly

This object has NO look of being in space. Scorch marks caused by the friction of re-entering Earths' atmosphere are not present, There would have been at least minor radiation on the "craft" And I highly doubt that if it was not of terrestrial origin, it wouldn't look as crude as it does. Everything ever described about ETs are smooth, seamless vehicles. Not two halves of a circle welded together.

This is kind of the same "but different" as it is a sphere and seems to have fallen from a great height and buried in soft red clay in North Alabama. I don't think they have figured out what it is yet after 28 yrs, it has always puzzled me since I saw it in this NUFORC post years ago.
