A metal unknown to humans fell from the sky in Sanchore, Rajasthan, explosion heard two km away and the object took three hours to cool down
There are many strange things in the universe that we haven’t even contemplated. We know only about the metals and minerals found on earth but there are bound to be some minerals/metals that we don’t even know about. One such thing that happened in the remote town of Sanchore, Rajasthan when a heavenly object fell in the town.
On quiet Friday morning, the Sanchore town inhabitants were shocked to hear a loud boom. Soon the villagers met at the place where the boom was located only to find out that a unique object had fallen from the sky. The police found a meteorite-like object fell which was very hot. In fact, the authorities told reporters that the object was emitting heat for nearly three hours before it cooled down.
Indians especially those living in border areas are under constant threat and fear of bombing from the enemy. Only two days ago, there was a border skirmish at the Northern Galwan Valley between the Indian Army and the Chinese PLA. Rajasthan is particularly vulnerable as it shares a huge boundary with Pakistan. In such circumstances, when this heavenly object fell, it made an eerie boom sound which immediately shook the remote community and created panic. They found the object had created a one-foot-deep crater. The Police told the press that the explosive sound that emanated was heard in nearby towns situated two kilometers away.

The local police and authorities thought the object was a bomb of some sort and would explode so they warned the villagers to stay away. After it cooled down, it was put in a jar. According to the police, the object will be investigated by geologists. The object weight 2.78 kgs and has a silver tint. It seems to be some rare metal and very valuable.
