Vietnam: the unexplained metal spheres that fell from the sky

Vietnam’s military is investigating the appearance of three mysterious metal spheres which landed in the country’s remote north. Witnesses told state-run media that they heard what sounded like thunder before the balls plunged to the earth.

Two metal balls were discovered in northwestern Yen Bai province on January 2. Later a larger ball weighing some 45 kilograms (100 pounds) landed in a maize field in Tuyen Quang province.

Army spokesman Lieutenant General Vo Van Tuan told AFP “We are still identifying where they came from,” adding the army had determined they did not contain explosives or hazardous material. He said the balls did not appear to be damaged and could have fallen from an altitude of less than 100 kilometres (62 miles).

In November, three mysterious objects also fell from the sky onto Spain’s southeast.


Many say that they are merely space debris, since NASA confirmed that more than 500,000 pieces of debris are currently orbiting Earth, and bits of space junk plummet to the planet every year.

But lets make some questions. Will space debris land on the same sight? And why aren’t no marks, no codes, no identification whatsoever in this space fallen objects?

The Ministry of Defence has pledged to release the findings of the probe but no information was reveal to this day.
