Metal objects in the form of spheres surrounded by jagged-edged crowns fell from the sky in northeastern China on Friday and Saturday.
Altogether, eight of these unidentified objects fell in the city of Qiqihar in China’s Heilongjiang province.
State-run media outlets reported that one of the balls was a little over 2 feet in diameter and weighed about 90 pounds. Locals saw the fiery balls falling.
Some have speculated they are nitrogen boosters from aircraft, citing residual nitrogen gas found in one of the balls. Many online discussions included talk of alien spacecraft.
One of the mysterious metal objects.
Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported that a carrier rocket malfunctioned and burned up over China on Friday, but that no debris could have reached Earth.
The head of the Russian Federal Space Agency (commonly called Roscosmos), Oleg Ostapenko, told RIA Novosti: “Reports have been confirmed that the carrier rocket, the booster and the satellite completely burned up in the atmosphere. This happened over Chinese territory. Taking into consideration the altitude of the orbit, we can definitely say that nothing reached Earth.”
YouTube poster Maurizio Ruiz, who posted the video of photos of the objects, below, writes:
“Meng Chang Village villagers heard this morning a huge piercing sound, after that some villagers witnessed a large fireball crossing the sky, falling within the farmers home vegetable garden..
Subsequently, the villagers photographed the UFO. According to photos, such as a round metal UFO peripheral package has jagged circle edges, and looked like a monks hat or cap on in Mongolia.
Reports as of now, Baiquan Qiqihar, Heilongjiang Province, also found that two UFOs crashed together, shaped like the first object. At the place that they fell, the UFOs have been blocked by authorities. Relevant personnel came to the scene, measuring and researching it.
“This news immediately became a hot topic in website “Mainland Friends.” Friends saw the photo that this is possibly an alien probe, satellite or space debris; Some people joked that it was ” Which country is spying on neighboring China?” There are people that said this is space junk; also people believe that this is a Russian rocket launch failure that happened this morning.
However, in the end these three UFOs are still under official investigation. (Which means the China govt has sealed these files and UFOs away-SCW).”
