As featured by the AtlasV launching on September 2, 2015, rocket flights can be hauntingly beautiful.

But what if something just unexpectedly falls from the craft and falls on your home through the roof… Scary.

One man in northeast China’s Shanxi Province recently experienced the unholy din of a rocket engine falling through his roof on August 27, 2015.

The engine is thought to have come from a Long March 4C rocket that recently launched the new Yaogan-27 satellite into orbit from Taiyuan Launch Base in Shanxi Province.

SinoDefense tweeted these images adding: “CZ4 rocket debris fell into a house in Shaanxi after Yaogan27 launch yesterday. Possible 1st stage engine.

But nobody has been injured in this unexpected accident.

Gizmodo reports: “It’s not clear exactly how often people living within a few hundred miles of China’s launch sites end up with engine nozzles falling into their houses or whole first stage engines crashing by the side of the road, but it’s not unheard of.

So we just have to pray that the skies stop raining shuttle parts.
