Large Metal Ball Falls From The Sky In Namibia

A large metallic ball fell on a remote grassland in Namibia, prompting baffled authorities to contact NASA and the European Space Agency.

The hollow ball was found in a village in the north of the country, some 750 kilometres from the country’s capital, Windhoek, according to the police forensics director, director Paul Ludik.

Locals said they had heard several small explosions some few days before the fall.

With a diameter of 65 centimetres, the ball had a rough surface, and appears to consist of two halves welded together. “It was made of metal alloy known to man”, said the director.

It was found 18 metres from the landing spot. It dug a hole 33 centimetres deep, and 3.8 metres wide.

Authorities found through an internet search engine, that several of such balls have landed in Southern Africa, Austrialia and Latin America in the past twenty years.

The metal ball was first discovered in mid-November, but authorities first did some tests before announcing the find.

The police said the ball was not dangerous, but they had to investigate first to find out.
