JAPAN: Residents and police in a coastal town in Japan have been confused by a huge iron ball that washed up on a local beach. The authorities have confessed that they are unsure of what that is but have confirmed that it would not explode. Photographs have been sent to the Japanese self-defense forces and coast guard for further investigation.
Two raised, hooked handles on the sphere’s surface testified that it could be hooked onto something; the people’s first thought was that it was a mooring buoy that had gotten loose and floated off to the shore.
With a total diameter of 1.5 metres, it has been at the centre of an investigation after being seen washed up on Enshu Beach in the city of Hamamatsu on the country’s Pacific coast. The orange-brown ball that seemed to have darker patches of rust was spotted by a local woman walking during that time. Explosive experts were summoned following that.
Fears that it was a lost mine were put to rest when experts used X-rays to look inside the object and found that it was hollow. There have been no hints of North Korean or Chinese espionage involvement.
A local man who visits the beach daily said that he did comprehend why the ball was in the centre of the spotlight, saying, “It’s been there for a month.”
“I tried to push it, but it wouldn’t budge,” he added.
The police blocked off 200-meter radii surrounding the ball while the experts constantly endeavoured to make logical conclusions.
People thought a UFO had fallen from the sky and looked like something from the popular manga series Dragon Ball Z.
