A flaming stone reportedly fell from the sky and crashed in a loud boom at the Negros Occidental High School (NOHS) campus in Bacolod City, Philippines, around 4pm local time on June 11, 2021.
Janette Sarcillo, the wife of one of the school’s security guards, later reported that she found the “space rock” that fell near the guards’ barracks.
“I saw the flaming object fall from the sky. It grew bigger and bigger as it approached the ground and made a loud explosion as it landed,” she said.
A geologist of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office will visit the NOHS campus on Monday to identify the stone.
Amaca said the fireball turned out to be a shiny black stone that is about two and a half inches thick and three inches long.
“It is almost as big as my fist and looks like a meteorite,” he said.
“It is very hard. If you scratch it against a sharp object, it turns white and goes back to its original colour,” he added. [Daily Express Malaysia]
