However, many local residents swear that they have also seen the object falling from the sky. The girl and her parents tried to wrap the found thing in a newspaper, but, of course, the paper immediately caught fire.
First hypotheses vary. Some believe the find to be a fragment of the Toutatis asteroid, which flew past the Earth a few days ago. On the other hand, the social networks are already bursting with discussions (not without irony) of "the latest sign of the coming end of the world, and of the fact that the Mayans were right..."
Rocco Favara, scientific head of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Palermo, where the mysterious object was handed, told the Voice of Russia, at what stage the study of the unknown object was:
“The found object was handed to the Institute on December 17. At the moment we are carrying out its examination. But after the first general analysis we tend to exclude the version of a meteorite, as it seems to us, we are dealing with a piece of burned wood. Within 24 hours we will carry out all necessary studies and announce our conclusionofficially.”
