It’s a mystery in Minnesota. Is it a part from a UFO? Well, it was as least for a while an unidentified flying object. It remains unidentified.
Bob Urman was sitting in a recliner in his apartment in the heart of St. Paul, about to watch a Minnesota Twins game on TV, when he heard a loud “Boom!” and his window shattered.
Urman thought it sounded like a shotgun blast. Then he looked closer.
A small steel object had smashed a hole through his window, busted the venetian blinds, dented the back of his TV and left a burn mark on the carpet. He called the apartment’s caretaker, who was away at work. Then he called police.
What the object is remains a mystery.
It is black and silver, appeared to be solid steel, mushroom shaped, smaller than a baseball. It was still warm when police investigated 45 minutes later. Was it a piece from an airplane? So far there has been no idenfication.
You would think someone would be able to identify what it is. But then you have to figure out how it ended up with such velocity to break the window and burn the rug. Could it be a piece from a larger machine? This is a curious story with no answer yet. If anyone finds out more, we’d love to update it.
