Sunday evening, a weird sky phenomenon broke up the monotony of a small Maya Town as a huge object, thought to be a fireball, lit up the skies over the town of Ichmul in southern Yucatan at around 8:30 PM local time.
The falling object was accompanied by a strong thundering noise and a loud blast when it crashed onto the ground. The crash was followed by flashing blue hazes and a power outage. Than flames were observable until approximately 2 AM at the object’s landing site. The sky phenomenon was also observed in Saban, Quintana Roo, San Francisco, and Peto Chikindzonot township.

Some locals picked up the fragments of the object and stored them at the municipal police station to determine its mysterious origin.
Asteroid or space junk? Well the police started to play with the gathered pieces and formed humanoid figures whose images have caused wonder and excitement among locals and foreigners as shown in this video in Spanish:
