Drones: the new Swamp Gas. Anyway, it certainly looks like something entering the atmosphere, doesn't it, so it can't be a uFO*, so I'd expect Meteor. Although according to the picture, it's in front of, i.e. below, the clouds. Would that be likely?
* since no UFOs have ever been seen entering the atmosphere, as we know

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

That is not a rounded shape object normally meteorites should look like. It is a triangle.

Firstly it is not a meteorite, it is a meteor, and secondly a meteor can be any shape

It's a vaguely triangular looking object from the direction it was photographed at.  That's all that can be said.  There's nowhere near enough detail in the photo to accurately determine just how close to triangular it is.  It just looks like a blob to me given the lack of detail available.

What makes you think meteorites should be rounded shaped?

Also, the "cleaned up" version shown on the website is bunk.  It's just the typical "enhanced" nonsense we see where someone has cranked up the contrast/brightness/saturation/color levels/whatever etc. thinking that the result somehow offers insight into a photo.

Physics. Any relatively smaller item  edge shaped entering in the atmosphere will be reshaped by speed and friction forces. The edges will burn out dissolving first in the upper atmosphere ending up in relatively round shape in the lower atmosphere.

Never a real one that has fallen recently.

I'm just curious. What exactly have you read within the realm of geology, history or physics, that has brought to this Grimm conclusion?

qxcontinuum doesn't believe in geology or history.

But if NASA says that their geologists have evidence of past water flowing on Mars, he's all over that like a fly on ****.

Geology is fairy tales until it says something he wants to believe.
