Unidentified Object Crashes into New Jersey Home After Mysterious Boom

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see how the recent spate of mystery booms and the concurrent trend of mysterious debris falling from the sky could be completely unrelated. Several strange objects have washed ashore or on the eastern coast in recent months, only to be whisked away by unnamed ‘officials’ before anyone can take a good look at them. With so much talk of an oncoming war in space and so many tests of unidentified new space weapons, something tells me that all of these strange objects are the results of either weapons testing or something darker.

Who really knows what's going on up there?

Of course, I could be connecting completely unrelated dots. Whatever the case in space may be, another recent example of a mysterious object crashing into a home is causing alarm and confusion and adding yet another case to the mystery-boom-and-debris pile. This week, a “large, heavy object” exploded through the walls of Arlene Silvestri's home in Jersey City, New Jersey shortly after locals reported hearing a loud boom, and law enforcement agencies can’t yet explain what the object is or where it came from.

"My tenant from upstairs called me and said 'there was an explosion.' So when I came here, the fire department was already here," Silvestri told reporters. Police arrived on the scene shortly after but so far have been unable to identify a source for the object. Whatever the projectile is, it’s oblong with one rounded end and roughly 3 feet (1 meter) in length and was propelled with enough force to blow through a nearly perfectly circular hole in a cinder block wall.

With so much orbital debris in space, it's only a matter of time these types of events are much more common.

Police believe a nearby scrapyard may somehow be involved but have yet to definitively identify the object or determine how it might have been propelled through the walls of the home. Jersey City released a statement stating the object is a “cylinder of compressed gas or compressed air” but many locals and investigators are skeptical of the claims.

Could this mystery object be related to the others that recently fell from the skies in the Carolinas? Do these cases have anything to do with the weird mystery booms and looming war in space?
