In a village in the Heilongjiang province of China, villagers have reported three UFOs have fallen from the sky Friday morning. According to the China News Service, the circular, metallic objects crashed to the ground of the two counties after “villagers heard a huge piercing sound, and then some villagers saw a big fireball” that eventually fell in a vegetable garden owned by one of the residents.
According to Chinatopix.com, one villager said, “I saw a huge ball of fire, I thought it was a meteorite, I hid inside my house and waited until the object landed.”China News described the ball-shaped objects as silver-gray, “surrounded by jagged edges and burn marks.” The objects pictured in this story is reported to be “about 2-and-a-half-feet wide and weighing nearly 90 pounds,” according to OpenMinds.TV.
Investigators rushed to the scene of the crash while stories and explanations for the UFO started to arise. According to Ecns.cn, the official English-language website of China News Service, just before the Chinese village residents witnessed unidentified flying objects in the sky above them, a Russian Proton-M rocket, carrying a communications satellite, experienced engine failure shortly after its launch Friday morning, burning up in Earth’s Atmosphere.
Russia has repeatedly said their rocket mostly disintegrated above Earth, China media said some unburned portions of the rocket accounts for those objects that crashed to the ground. China is continuing the investigation.
