The circular, metallic objects crashed to the ground of 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.
“I saw a huge ball of fire, I thought it was a meteorite,” one villager said, Chinatopix.com reported. “I hid inside my house and waited until the object…landed.”
China News further described the ball-shaped objects as silver-gray, “surrounded by jagged edges and burn marks.”
The object pictured in this story is reported to be “about 2-and-a-half-feet wide and weighing nearly 90 pounds,” according to OpenMinds.TV.
