Space ball: UFO shocks Brazilians (VIDEO, PHOTOS)


rt.com

An identified metal sphere has plunged from the sky on unsuspecting villagers in northern Brazil, causing an uproar. According to eyewitnesses, the UFO weighs about 50 kilograms and measures roughly one meter in diameter.
The sphere fell on Wednesday in a village of Riacho dos Poços in Brazilian Maranhão state. No casualties were reported apart from an unfortunate cashew tree that was severed by the object as it plunged to the ground, according to MR NOTÍCIAS, a Mata Roma news site.

What the hell is this.

The military have already taken the object for inspection and I would bet that is the last time we hear anything about it.

Whats you thoughts ?

I think this baby has fell of some kind of ship the description of the noise that it made when hitting the ground sounded like a plan crashing. The object also has what I think seems to be scorch marks on the back but who knows

It bares a very close resemblence to the sputnik satalite.

There was a thread a few months back about a much smaller ball falling out the sky, there were a few more options for that one due to its size.

A 50kg metal ball almost a meter across sounds like space junk falling back down though.

It looks like the sphere that fell in Namibia.

Could there be satellites we don't know about reaching the end of their orbit velocity?

EDIT: I just watched the video in OP's link. Definitely a hydrazine tank.

Now if only I could have some space sphere (made of gold) fall out of the sky onto my property...

Anyway, For the time being I'm going to assume it's space junk, that's the logical explanation thus far...for the time being, until their investigation is complete.


Edit - I do agree with everyone that it does indeed seem like it's part of an old satellite.

I'm not sure about an old satellite, how many spheres did we put up there?

It also survived a fall from space pretty well!

Almost certainly a chunk of satellite.

Or...

Any chance we're witnessing the dawn of viral marketing for Cloverfield 2? Now THAT would be exciting news.

Miniature satellite devices. We've been using them a bit here in the US.
I'll post info here in a bit when I can find the relevant information.

edit: meh. Not what I was describing exactly but you get the picture.
Click here to see our balls

Curious as to why they would drop out of orbit though if they are indeed our drones.

If that thing is a piece of a satellite, what piece exactly it is?

It's not a "fuel tank", right? Satellites are powered by solar cells, not by fuel tanks, right?

I think you have just debunked it.

Hydrazine bladder tank.

And what is a hyrdazine tank?

Excuse my naivety.

But wouldn't something this size just burn up on re-entry ?

yeah, except a hollow ball with liquid inside that caused a meter deep crater when it fell yet is still [close enough to] perfectly round?
what must they be building their sputnkis out of nowadays?

Last November, a similar metallic ball fell in Namibia.

Why is Earth being bombarded with space junk now?

What is happening up there?

Thee writer/author of that article, above linked to Gawker, sounds as if he is a sophomore in high school with all of the balls "jokes."

I was just thinking along the same lines as you.

Not one dent on the thing
