Massive Metal Cylinder Falls From Sky In Burma

It's time to ascend.


The incident occurred in a jade mining area in the countrys north, and some residents say the sound of the impact was so loud that they thought there was a battle underway, and that their houses shook.

The object is 4.5 metres in length and 1.2 metres wide. There are also reports a smaller metallic object fell nearby, crashing through the roof of a residence.

The shocked residents reported a massive explosion sounds moments before the objects crashed down.

“We were all afraid of that explosion,” said Ko Maung Myo, a local villager. “Initially, we thought it was a battle. The explosion made our houses shake. We saw the smoke from our village.”

Investigations seem to indicate that the pieces of metal junk were most likely debris from a Chinese satellite launch the day before. The rocket was carrying an experimental satellite up into space, however it is currently not known what has happened to it.
