Citizens of Mengchang village, Heilongjiang Province witnessed three unidentified flying objects landing in their vegetable fields on Friday. The villagers heard a loud noise and saw a giant fireball shoot into a villagers’ vegetable garden. The area was blocked for investigation. Photos taken by villagers displayed a large metal ball with a jagged edge.
A villager who saw the whole thing said: “I saw a huge ball of fire, I thought it was a meteorite. I hid inside my house and waited until the object had landed.” Another two objects were seen falling from the sky in Baiquan county nearby. The “fire” balls weighing around 40 kilograms and about 70 centimeters in diameter baffled and scared local residents. However, the flying objects may have been identified and have nothing to do with alien invasion. It has been speculated that the objects are parts of a Russian rocket, Proton-M, that crashed outside of Kazakhstan on Friday.
A press report claimed that: “It was the second time in 12 months that a Proton rocket has exploded after lift-off. In July of 2013, an unmanned Proton exploded over Kazakhstan a few minutes after lifting off. The rocket was carrying an Express-AM4R communications satellite when it exploded in the air some 10 minutes after it lifted-off. “
