    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 ball came down it caused a crater 12 inches deep and 13ft wide, although it was found some 60ft away.

    Locals claimed to have heard several explosions in the days before it was discovered by a farmer on his land.

    It will crack open like an egg and thousands of tiny aliens will emerge. :eek:

    Either the still blew or they were cooking meth.

    To try and reassure the public it also revealed that the odds of being hit were one in 3,200 - more likely than getting a hole-in-one in golf.

    Well thank God it landed in Namibia, wherever that is.

    When the ball came down it caused a crater 12 inches deep and 13ft wide, although it was found some 60ft away.........

    Yeah, I'm thinking that if golf holes were "12 inches deep and 13 feet wide" holes in one would be a lot more common than they are.
    Whatever...... that sucker was cookin' when it came in! But it was going nowhere near the speed that earth travels through space, which is about 70,000 MPH.
