Space experts have been investigating a strange metallic object that fell from the sky over Siberia.
The six-foot object resembles a large dustbin lid and remains under police guard after it was found by locals near the small village of Otradnensky. "The object found is not related to space technology," said the Russian space agency Roscosmos. "A final conclusion can be made after a detailed study of the object by experts." It wasn't long before the media picked up the story and labelled the mysterious object a 'UFO fragment'.
"Initial theories that it was part of a space rocket or a satellite form a failed launch in Kazakhstan have been denied."
