There are numerous cases of weird things coming from above throughout history, often with no solid answers. In recent years, this has continued with a surprising number of cases where strange metallic orbs have dropped out of nowhere, only to leave people wondering what they really are. Here we will see some strange cases of metallic balls or spheres that have fallen and have managed to evade any real concrete understanding.
In 2012, the inhabitants of northern Brazilwere surprised when a metallic sphere fell from the sky to crash in Riacho dos Poços, in the Brazilian state of Maranhão, destroying a cashew tree in the process. The person who first discovered it said that he was shocked after a loud bang reverberated in the sky. He went out to see that he caused it. What he found was a strange, otherworldly object in a ditch still warm to the touch, and described as perfectly spherical and approximately 1 meter in diameter and weighing 50 kilograms. When other locals arrived and dug it up, they discovered that the sphere appeared to be hollow except for what appeared to be some liquid floating inside. Military police soon arrived and removed the sphere, saying it was just part of a fallen satellite.
The US state of Texas had a similar incident in 2013, when an electrician named Dean Gentz spotted a strange object near a cow pasture on his land near the East Texas town of Buna. Upon inspection, the object was found to be a brown metallic orb about 35 centimeters in diameter and showing signs of extreme heat exposure.
Not long after, another mysterious sphere would be found above the grassland in the same area, and despite Gentz’s efforts to find out where it came from, he has received no answers from NASA or any other agency he has turned to for information. more information.
In 2014, residents of the city of Mengchang in Heilongjiang province, China, were awakened by a loud noise, after which three “fireballs” were seen descending from the sky. These fireballs proceeded to land in some agricultural areas, and when locals went to investigate, they allegedly found three “half-covered metallic balls separated by a jagged edge layer,” weighing around 40 kilograms and with a diameter of approximately 75 centimeters. . Officials once again rushed to seize the foreign objects, offering the explanation that they were debris from the Russian Proton-M rocket carrying a satellite, which had crashed somewhere in Kazakhstan after a failed launch.
Is that what it was or is it something more mysterious? Chinese officials do not want to say.In 2015, three “strange black orbs” appeared inside impact craters in fields in and around Villavieja, Spain. Each of the strange black objects was estimated to be 80 centimeters in diameter with a hole at one end and appeared to be built around wire frames. A news outlet, La Verdad, would report that these objects are made of an unknown material, and appear strong enough to survive re-entry into the earth and even catastrophic explosions. Curiously, the civil guard soon moved in to protect the area and prevent the press from approaching.
That same year, a goat farmer in the city of Calasparra, Spain, reported that a spherical metallic object had crashed before his eyes. Officials in biohazard suits reportedly recovered the object and took it away in a vehicle. Interestingly, at about the same time on the same day and even at the same latitude, a similar object fell on a beach near the city of Sakarya Karasu, Turkey. Once again, military officials rushed to the scene immediately, took the object away, and didn’t even bother to offer an explanation.
In January 2016, news began to circulate of “giant metal space balls” falling from the sky in Yen Bai province and its neighbor Tuyen Quang in Vietnam. On different occasions, a “thunder noise” was heard, and three orbs of different sizes ranging from 6 to 50 kg in weight appeared in clear skies to crash to the ground, very close to each other. One of the spheres was found to be hollow, while another had Russian-like writing on it, leading to speculation that they were from a Russian satellite or weather balloon, or the compressed air tanks of a rocket or plane. At least that is the official forecast.
Finally, in 2018 three metallic spherical objects were found in the Andean community of southeastern Peru, shortly after reports of burning objects in the sky were received. Officials who recovered the objects said they were pieces of a rocket or satellite that had burned up and melted on re-entry, though others said they were meteorites.
With the world’s major space agencies going completely silent about these events, various conspiracy theories have emerged, ranging from alien drones or parts of damaged alien structures in space to secret government space programs. And these have been fueled by reports that military officials rushed to bring the spheres and claim they were made of an unknown “special alloy”. The orbs remain unidentified and have been confiscated by governments for testing.
In the end it’s all pretty puzzling. These things keep falling from the sky and there doesn’t seem to be a real, agreed-upon answer to everything. Are these just cases of space debris fragments, or is there something more? Why is it that in almost every case officials rush to remove everything and give vague answers, if any? What’s going on here? It’s hard to say, but these reports keep coming in and spark discussion and debate.
