What is this stone sphere falling from the sky? Surely not a meteorit...

Seeing as the event took place in france, though im not sure location exactly.....
But is it possible this stone is the remnant of catapult ammo from the roman armee when they attacked the gauls???
The stone need not be the article that made the crater......................

All that technology in the 'star wars' attempts, lasers and 'nukes, and all the aliens have to do is throw a few stones from space to wipe us out....simple!

OK, Guys, some interesting news.

It's most likely about a prehistoric (neolithic) tool that can be found from place to place in France and that it called "molette sphérique" that can be translated in English by "spherical wheel".
They are made either of quartzite or granite, they are (almost) perfectly round and have a diameter of 88mm.



This is certainly a grain mill.
It was used as follows: dry cereal were put on a flat or concave stone and grains were broken and crushed by friction to produce small flour quantities. Spheres hold well in hand and a simple twist of the wrist can easily crush seeds and grains, which is much faster than an ordinary mill. The choice of quartzite or granite limit the presence of mineral waste in the flour thus produced.

Special thanks to Gilles F. from the French forum sceptic.ovni for finding the solution.

I haven't read all the recent posts but why the hell was it smoking?....... according to this guy who discovered it (and got the story published without a trace of evidence to back his story except his word....which is weird in itself)????

Hi Human_Alien!


Well, I guess that we shouldn't believe every word this guy was saying. Not that he's a liar, but, sometimes, when one met unusual things, one tend to artificially exaggerate.
Maybe also, it was a cold day with haze all over the field and the man take it for smoke....
