Federal Aviation Administration officials are baffled by a strange piece of metal that smashed through the roof of a furniture warehouse in Plymouth, Massachusetts yesterday. The debris does not belong to any known type of aircraft.
The 5-pound chunk of space junk was found on the floor of Michael’s Wholesale Furniture Distributors after workers noticed a large, gaping hole in the roof.
“We don’t know when exactly it fell, but we found it at 11 o’clock [a.m. EST],” said Andrew McWilliams, a Michael’s employee.
Police were called in, but quickly turned the matter over to the FAA when they could not identify the metallic object.
“We have no idea what it is. At this point, we can only speculate,” said Plymouth police Capt. John Rogers. “This would have had to come through with some significant force or velocity to get through the warehouse roof and cause damage.”
That means the object must have fallen from a great height, probably outer space, and was not the result of any kind of explosion on the ground.
“It’s just scary, I’m glad nobody works in here,” said Kelly Nolan, who works on the first floor of the building.
One FAA official, who was not identified in the report, said that he has “no clue” what the object is.
Pictures of the debris itself haven’t led to any helpful conclusions either, as the piece looks to be completely solid and cylindrical.
Can this be a piece of debris from an extraterrestrial craft, an actual piece of a UFO?
More FAA officials are currently heading to Plymouth for a more detailed examination.
