A suspected meteorite crashed on a paddy field in India on Monday.
According to The Guardian, the football-sized object landed with a thud and sent smoke to the Madhubani district of Bihar state, to the surprise of local peasants.
Kapil Ashok told the Times of India that people reported seeing a "fireball-like object coming down from the sky".
The inhabitants later dug the mysterious object out of a 5-foot-deep hole.

The likely meteorite had a brownish color and weighed about 33 pounds, according to the Times.
Ashok told the Indian Press Trust that he looked like a stone, "but his glitter is much more than that of an unpolished stone. "
The object is first kept in the Bihar Museum before it is transferred to the Shrikrishna Science Center in Patna, where it is studied by scientists.
