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."

And mores the bloody pity that we read a headline like the above and go for a looky.. only to be let down.. and no wonder... next time we read a similar report...all of our bull**** detectors will be going off big time, but...some of us will look again....just in case and all that... and thats the whole point, how do you look at a story.. if youre a naive believer? Compared to one whose heard it all before? So yeh it can be tedious with all the new ufo's and similar stories reported so frequently. I wouldn't say Im not a skeptic, I really want the definitive evidence, I really... [More]

The topic says in December locals heard something in the woods then last week someone found this object in the woods. Whos to say the two are even related. No reports of a crater or anything to indicate it fell from the sky but somehow locals insist it fell from the sky. Were there any eyewitness' of it falling from the sky? So we have some object found in the woods and everyone jumps to the conclusion that it fell from the sky.

I'm no space junk expert. I'm just a farm girl, and that looks suspiciously like the top of a grain silo to me.

I think that most sane people would come to the same conclusion.There is so much fakery out there that, to be honest even if a UFO was to land in my back garden now and two little green men came out and mooned at me.I would still have to Question it's authenticity.

As I've been a member for so long and this is only my second post, you may notice I'm the shy, quiet type (as in just a shadow of the moon), but dang. Thank you for the welcome. You folks are certainly interesting or I wouldn't still be hanging around.
