UT Report: Two Objects Crash to Ground in Mongolia

Report: Two Objects Crash to Ground in Mongolia
Universe Today - 2010 Feb 24
Two objects reportedly crashed to the ground near Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia on Feb. 19, 2010. The first object, according to the report on the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness database, weighed 10 kg, while the second larger object weighed approximately 2 tons. Other than that, there's not a lot of information available about the objects. But of course, UFOers are having a field day, calling the image, below, that accompanied the report a "leaked UFO crash" picture. But the object looks suspiciously like a rocket or jet engine, or perhaps a rocket nose cone. Objects that crash to Earth likely have a very terrestrial origin. We'll provide an update when any news becomes available. But if you are looking for a few laughs, check out the comments on Io9.

<<Ulan Bator (English: The Red Hero), is the capital and largest city of Mongolia. The city is an independent municipality not part of any province, and its population as of 2008 is just over one million. Located in the north central part of the country, the city lies at an elevation of about 1,310 metres in a valley on the Tuul River. The city was founded in 1639 as an initially nomadic Buddhist monastic centre. In 1778 it settled permanently at its present location, the junction of the Tuul and Selbe rivers. Before that it had changed location twenty-eight times, with each location being chosen ceremonially.>>
