Video: Mysterious Metal Balls Rain Down From Sky Onto Multiple Villages in India


Video: Mysterious Metal Balls Rain Down From Sky Onto Multiple Villages in India

By Tim Binnall

Multiple villages in India were pelted by mysterious metal balls that rained down from the sky in what is likely a case of space junk falling back down to Earth. According to a local media report, the odd incident unfolded over the course of two days last week and impacted at least seven neighboring communities across the Indian state of Gujarat. The rather sizeable spheres, which can be seen 'showcased' in the video above, weighed approximately 12 pounds each and measured around one-and-a-half feet in diameter.

While there were no injuries from the bizarre 'rainfall,' there was one unfortunate victim in the form of a lamb that just happened to be grazing in the wrong place at the wrong time. “There was a huge sound from the sky and blinding light," recalled a witness to the creature's demise, "I could not see anything but almost the next instant, there was a loud noise and I saw that a metal piece had fallen on a lamb. It was hot and killed the lamb instantly." As one might imagine, the falling balls caused something of a stir in the various villages and left many residents understandably wondering about the origins of the weird spheres.

Fortunately, it would seem that the mystery surrounding the baffling balls may wind up being short-lived as authorities enlisted experts from the Indian government to examine the spheres and they determined that they were likely space junk. Specifically, it was noted that the objects were "made of high-density metal alloys" of the kind used in rocket launches. Narrowing down the nature of the balls even further, a scientist from the Indian space agency indicated that the spheres appear to have been fuel storage tanks. An astronomer who tracks space debris was even able to identify where, exactly, the objects likely originated, pointing to a Chinese rocket that was expected to reenter the atmosphere at around the time of the 'rainfall.'

The Department of Homeland Security issued a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin on Tuesday (June 7), warning of a "heightened threat environment across the United States." The agency warned that violent extremists could use recent acts of violence to justify attacks against a number of potential targets, including public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents.

"As recent acts of violence in communities across the country have so tragically demonstrated, the nation remains in a heightened threat environment, and we expect that environment will become more dynamic in the coming months," DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement. "The Department of Homeland Security remains steadfast in our commitment to provide timely information and resources to the American public and our partners across every level of government, in law enforcement, and in the private sector."

This is the sixth threat bulletin issued by the DHS during the Biden Administration and replaces one set to expire at 2 p.m. on Tuesday. The current threat bulletin will expire on November 30, 2022.

These Car Hacks are Huge Lifesavers (PAGE 6)

Drop A Pin To Remember Where You Parked
[object Object]

Are you the type of person that always seems to forget where you parked? Well here’s an easy solution, especially for those times you’re parking in an unfamiliar area, particularly in a city. Drop a pin for yourself. Whether you have an android or an apple phone, you have the ability to mark your location. So as soon as you park, drop that pin and you’ll have no problem finding your car later on.

Understanding Your Gas Tank
[object Object]

If you’re driving a car you’ve never driven before, you might be wondering, which side of the car is the tank on? Well, this is actually easier to determine than you might’ve thought. In every car, there’s a little fuel pump symbol on your dash with an arrow next to it that points to whichever side the tank is on.

How To Avoid Getting Played By Mechanics
[object Object]

If you’re looking to get some work done on your car, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself at a mechanic that is absolutely willing to lie to you and take advantage of your lack of knowledge about the vehicle. So, one great way to gauge if the mechanic is an honest one or not is to ask about a part of the car you’re positive is in great shape.

How To Get Sticker Off From Window
[object Object]

Whether you’re the bumper sticker type or the stick family type, it can be tough to get those pesky stickers off your car in one piece without leaving adhesive marks behind. If you’re having trouble with this, use warm water to soak some newspaper and place it over the sticker for about 10 minutes. It should come off much easier.

How To Get Rid of Blind Spots

If you can see the back of your car in your side mirrors, they’re positioned incorrectly and this could potentially be dangerous. The best way to avoid blind spots is to position the mirrors so that no part of your car appears in them.

Always Take Pictures Of Your Rental Car
[object Object]

If you’re renting a car, whether it be for just a day or for a weekend getaway, make sure you take pictures of it beforehand so that you can’t be blamed for anything wrong with it. Even with reputable rental companies, all it takes is one person to make the wrong decision to pull one over on you. Better safe than sorry!

Shoes Make Great Cup Holders
[object Object]

Surprisingly, shoes make great additional cup holders in our cars. Sometimes you just need a bigger cup holder or simply an extra one when you have more drinks than your car can fit. Thankfully, an old shoe can act as the perfect cup holder, as long as you don’t mind the smell. The foot hole is perfectly sized to hold a cup and can even be adjusted for those gallon cups you find at gas stations.

Extra storage using mesh bungee net

Not everyone can afford that oversized SUV that can fit a huge grocery run. So sometimes that calls for a little creativity to use the space they have for storage. One place in the car that’s often underutilized is the ceiling…

But this hack will give you all the storage you need, and more. By adding a mesh bungee net to your car’s ceiling, you can throw anything you might need up there like it’s trapped in a web.

Hang A Tennis Ball In Your Garage

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have parking sensors in their cars like the most recent models come with. If you’re worried about pulling too far into your garage and damaging your grill, a tennis ball hanging from a string will act as a parking aid, and when you hit the ball, you know you’ve gone far enough. Thanks to this hack, you can kiss goodbye to hitting the garage wall ever again.

Keep Your Takeout Warm By Using Your Heated Seats
[object Object]

The best ideas are often right in front of our faces. It makes so much sense to make sure your takeout doesn’t get cold by the time you get come from picking it up. Your first thought might be to just turn off the A/C and ride in a hot car. But why suffer at all? If you turn your passenger seat warmers on high, your food will stay warm and you can keep the temperature in the car whatever you’d like without a worry in the world.

Olive Oil Is Great For Collecting Dust
[object Object]

Cars seem to be dust magnets, and if left for too long, they can be unsightly. Plus, having all of that dust lying around isn’t the best thing to be breathing in a confined space. Luckily there is a common household item that will collect all of that dust for you…

And it goes by the name of olive oil. By rubbing a small amount of the oil onto something like a kitchen towel or coffee filter, you can mop up all of that dust with the greatest of ease.

Use Your Floor Mats For Traction When Stuck
[object Object]

If you get stuck in the mud or snow, you can use your floor mats for traction. All you have to do is unclip your floor mats from both the driver and passenger floors and then place them behind or in front of each of the stuck wheels (depending on if you need to go forward or backward).

Repurpose An Inflatable Pool Floatie For A Bed
[object Object]

If you’ve ever been on a long road trip and needed to pull over to get some rest, its a cheap and comfortable idea to keep a pool floatie in your trunk to blow up in your backseat when you want to take a nap. Nothing is worse than fighting the feeling of your heavy eyelids on a long road trip. Its always better to play it safe and take a little break.

Shawn, MN

• I am so glad I found
I love because it is someone sharing their knowledge of savings and freebies in a day when so little people want to share anything.
The grocery bag deals are rarely for any of the stores in my area, but I pass the information on to others, that also clip q-pons and do their best to live frugally.
I do make sure I check the sunday coupons against the grocery deals that are posted, just to be sure I didnt miss something of interest on my own. (I have been known to miss a few...LOL)
I have saved so much by ordering items from the hot deals of the day too. Toys for my son and grandson . A clock for my father, that was made by a company that he has been searching for, since last fall. He loved it so much he ordered another one for his girlfriend.
Being a stay at home mom, after being the major bread winner in our family, our income has decreased by 2/3! has made stretching our very meager budget so much easier.
So...Thank you for all that you do, it is greatly appreciated.
Brenda Thompson, OH
