It is a mysterious ball that looks like a prop from a science fiction film - and nobody can explain where it came from.
Police have been left baffled after a strange metal sphere fell to the ground in a remote area of northern Namibia, Africa.
It weighs around 13lbs, has a diameter of 14 inches and its rough surface looks like two halves welded together, said police forensics director Paul Ludik.
When the craft came down it caused a crater 12 inches deep and 13ft wide, although the ball itself was some 60ft away.
Locals claimed to have heard several explosions in the days before it was discovered by a farmer on his land.

It’s a pressure vessel or an accumulator from a spacecraft or aircraft.
You can see melted metal where the lines to and from it melted from the fittings, which are the bumps on each side.
It does not look like one of ours.
Waiting for opening... GOP Leaderships plan...

14” diameter metal sphere leaving a 12” deep crater means this thing was only 100 feet high at best. Cannon?
