A farmer found the mysterious thing in the middle of his field.
An Australian farmer reported a UFO falling on his property a few weeks ago. The first investigations point to it being an object from space.
Images obtained by Reuters show the object at a height of about 2.7 meters on the farm floor, and the piece appears all black and appears to belong to a larger ship.
In an interview with The New York Times, the farmer confirmed that the smell of the package reminded him of burning a tree or burning an agricultural machine.
Large charred debris – an estimated 80cm and 15kg – fell perpendicular to the property of a farmer named Mick Miners, while another landslide hit a nearby hectare of neighbor, Jock Wallace, both from the Snowy Mountains region of New Wales, south of Sydney.
As a result of these events, the farmers decided to contact the astrophysicist Brad Tucker to inspect the area, go on a tour and investigate the mysterious fragments of space, which, according to specialists, began their journey towards Earth on July 9.
According to the man’s account, he was taking some sheep to graze when he hit the object on the ground.
According to information from NASA experts, this object will be part of a piece of the SpaceX Dragon ship. It appears to be part of a part that was discarded during the ship’s launch.
“The agency has confirmed that the debris came from the SpaceX mission and continues to contact our counterparts in the United States, as well as other parts of the Commonwealth and local authorities, as appropriate,” an agency spokesperson said.
However, NASA warned that anyone who finds objects of this type should not deal with them and should move away to notify the authorities.
“If you think you’ve identified a piece of debris, don’t try to tamper with it,” NASA says.
Tucker, an expert on issues like this, confirmed on his YouTube account that these landslides belong to Space X Crew-1, the unpressurized capsule that carries astronauts into space. “In the images of the wreck, you can clearly see the charring, which was to be expected from the return. It is very rare to see them, because they do not usually land on land, but in the ocean. It was exciting and strange at the same time,” the astrophysicist noted.
Along the same lines and in an interview with ABC media, he said, “People often think that they find small pieces of space debris, but they will burn up when they enter again, so they are more likely to be large pieces. Like him.”
Falls of this type of space object have already been reported on other occasions, most of which are due to broken or outdated satellites or rockets.
It is believed that in the Earth’s atmosphere there are tens of thousands of objects that form a ring of space debris.
