A huge megacryometeor (ice meteorite) of about 20kg (44 pounds) crashed onto a parked car in the Monteverde area of Rome, Italy on July 26, 2016 at around 9:15pm.
The large ice meteor emitted a loud explosion boom as it destroyed the windshield of the Toyota Aygo.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the incident. But the falling ice completely destroyed the windscreen, the dashboard, the passenger seat and gearbox.
Nearby residents reported hearing a loud explosion, which sent many out onto their balconies to investigate the source of the noise.
It is unsure where the potentially deadly iceball came from, but investigators think it may have been caused by a leaking toilet of a passing jet liner. Police has collected samples of the ice for further analysis.
‘Blue ice’ is the name commonly given to a mixture of human waste and liquid disinfectant which can leak from an aircraft’s waste system in case of a malfunction. The waste water then freezes at high altitude and then falls to earth as a giant iceball.
If analysis proves that the megacryometeor was indeed from an airplane, the responsible aircraft could face charges if tracked down.
