Space ball: UFO 

An identified metal sphere has plunged from the sky on unsuspecting villagers in northern Brazil, causing an uproar. According to eyewitnesses, the UFO weighs about 50 kilograms and measures roughly one meter in diameter.

The sphere fell on Wednesday in a village of Riacho dos Poços in Brazilian Maranhão state. No casualties were reported apart from an unfortunate cashew tree that was severed by the object as it plunged to the ground, according to MR NOTÍCIAS, a Mata Roma news site.

Valdir José Mendes, 46, told police the sphere landed several meters from his house leaving a one-meter-deep hole in the yard.

“I heard the noise and I went out to see what caused it. I thought it was a plane that had fallen, or an earthquake,” he said.

The noise was such that Mendes was too scared to go outside. However, curiosity got the better of him and he headed outside to find the cashew tree’s trunk snapped in half by a mysterious metal sphere lying in a hole nearby.

Some 20 villagers joined Mendes to help him extract the object from the ground and examine it. Mendes says the sphere is hollow and if shaken some sort of liquid can be felt swishing inside. Locals quickly spread the news, as they reached the town of Mata Roma over 2,000 people flocked to see the “UFO”.

“It was a huge uproar here. Some feared it was the beginning of the 2012 end of the world, others said it was ‘alien’, but I think it is a piece of satellite,” said Max Garreto Mauro, 25, a resident of Mata Roma.

Peter Costa, the meteorologist at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), agrees with Garetto, saying the object would probably be part of a satellite. “I’m sure this is not a weather balloon or part of it,” he said as quoted by O Imparcia.

Military police confiscated the sphere and took it to the barracks in the nearby Mata Roma. They have not specified what the UFO’s possible future will be. In a statement the Air Force Command said it “does not have specialized structures to perform scientific research on this type of aerial phenomena, which prevents the institution to submit an opinion on these events.”

Mind your head!

In December 2011, a similar incident happened in Namibia, where a metal “Teletubby head” weighing 5.9 kilograms and measuring 35 centimeters in diameter hit the ground in the village of Omanatunga. Some Russian specialists believe the “head” was part of the third stage of the Soyuz-U rocket, launched on October 30.

Space debris stories made the headlines throughout 2011. In January, media chased the infamous Russian mars probe Phobos-Grunt across five oceans to keep up with Russia’s space agency, constantly changing the possible impact location.

Earlier in October, the German Roentgen satellite split into 30 chunks, one of which weighed 400 kilograms, but those globs eventually made their way in to the Indian Ocean.

In September 2011, the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite made headlines when it threatened to fall right onto Britain but eventually collapsed into a remote part of the Pacific Ocean.

  1. What gives the military the right to confiscate it! It fell from the sky, they do not know who’s it is, so they take it! Typical! This is the problem with our Governments, they’re no longer here to represent us, but here to rule over us! Another object, alien or otherwise, we will never conclusively know.!

  2. its not alien, it will be some sort of hard drive unit (a type of blackbox), made to withstand reentry. So in reality the military took it so no one else would know what theyre up to in space. The swishing sound, at a guess, would be coolant for hard drive racks. Who knows really though, it could be a section of a fuel tank for some random piece of debris that has been stuck in the upper atmosphere for a lot longer than the rest of the debris it was attached to. the way I see it, at least it didn’t hit a plane on its way down…

  3. Yes, it is good that no-one was hurt. I agree that it is possibly part of a satellite or something similar, however my point is that when-ever anything happens the military close in and take anything found, into a veil of secrecy! There has been many incidences of items found, yet these disappear, national security? I doubt it, the truth is kept from us. Sorry I just find it frustrating that the Govt/Military can do what ever they want, they’re here to represent and protect us not control. Sorry they do not have the right, and every time we make an excuse for them, we simply accept this modern jail we all live in! Peace…

    • I agree that we have no real say or power anymore, bureaucracy is the malignant tumor stuck into the side of all major governments today and its rotting the rest yadda yadda. gah im just sick of their being no action against people like the army or government but there is really nothing we can do when they control our very way of life; health, food, police, news, jobs, personal records.

  4. Sorry my friend, that is where you are wrong. One voice cannot be heard but many roar! The more we talk, highlight the injustice, spread the word, in time our voices will be heard. The problem is it is a big hill to climb, but not impossible. If people would just stick together, help each other, put greed and selfishness aside, we would be on the road to a better way, I do believe people can change, civilization can change. We have to just keep talking, I know it does not sound like much, but every journey has to start with a first step. Awareness is important, we should not just accept it because they’re the bully in the playground. The Govt manipulate everything we see and hear, creating a feeling of hopelessness, control, but, my friend, there is always hope, and in time the truth will come out, in time we will evolve to be better, redefining humanity! Peace..

    • yes the big hill is to be climbed, but all people need a leader to follow, its a simple fact, and anyone who trys to join us together in rebellion is snuffed, just look at the Wall street protest, the news propaganda turned everybody agaianst it, the police were no told to hold back and freely hit peaceful protestors with pepper spray, rubber bullets and batons. Unfortunately for us we are stuck between a rock and a hard place and it would literally take an entire country to get the ball rolling, and even then whats to stop the other countries from starting embargoes of trade, creating propaganda against them and manipulating that countries message to the world, whats to stop them from saying that that country is making nuclear weapons and getting the UN to sanction military action against them or attacking them with crippling viruses to destroy infrastructure. Im sorry but just the more i look at the situation we are in in the world the more i realize that as long as the troops of the worlds armies have their pockets lined with coin and the police receive bribes there will always be corruption in the most basic human rights.

      • Hi Like, I totally agree with what you say. Corruption, greed, selfishness, power held by corrupt Govt/military, etc, these are the problems. The Police enforce a corrupt system, excessive violence, when they’re meant to protect us. The system is just a modern jail without walls. However it can change, if you consider Christianity, this spread through word and mouth, in fact most religions did, though again eventually corruption seeped in, but the word spread. Just because we cannot see the end game does not mean we shouldn’t try, because if we don’t who will? I believe that in order for humanity to survive we need to change our attitudes to each other, life has to have value, human before nationality. If enough people change, if enough people think differently, we’d vote in Govts who represent and echo those thoughts, therefore changing the direction of Govts, the direction of humanity. The problem is that at the moment, people are selfish, often not wanting to help each another, and believe the Govt controlled media, but in an ever changing world attitudes will have to change, either due to a WWIII, extreme climate change or economical disaster, etc. You are right it feels pointless, but if enough people talk, attitudes will change. People need to stop putting too much value on material wealth, this just leaves us open to be controlled, the fear of losing what you have keeps us in line. I do not know what the answer is, I just know the world is not right, we need to be better, and change has to start somewhere. Thanks m8… Peace..
