Days after the strange sonic events, a large, metallic hollow sphere was found in the vicinity where the explosions were heard. The mystery object, described as two hemispheres welded together, thirteen to fourteen inches in diameter, and weighing approximately thirteen pounds, was recovered from a one-foot deep mini impact crater.
Authorities investigating the event speculate that the loud explosions were 'sonic booms' created by the falling ball as it passed overhead. The mysterious sphere was sent to the capital of Namibia for further tests, and the government is requesting space agencies from all over the world to help solve the mystery.
