A few questions that come to mind when looking at this thing.
1, Why do they not show the impact crater on the video? An object this size striking the ground would create a large hole 'if it came from orbit'.
2, It looks like it is made of aluminium. Aluminum rarely survives re-entry, and even if it did it would be vapourized on impact... This thing does not have a single dent on it.
The most likely explanation is a hoax, the village idiot having a laugh at the at the expense of others Or a nutter from the next town over built himself a catapult/cannon and launched this thing out of it. There is no chance this object came through the earth's atmosphere, nonsense.
Actually, a hollow spherical object made of titanium would not make a large crater. When an object re-enters Earth's atmosphere from orbit velocity, it still travels "forward" much faster than it travels"downward". After passing through the various layers of atmosphere (the stages where heat damage are present), the object succumbs to gravity and eventually plummets faster "downward" than "forward". Upon reaching terminal velocity, the crater would be no larger if the object fell from space, or was dropped from a high enough building.

Hey instead of derailing everyone else why not answer what I posted? I'd like to see your spin on the pic's I posted.
