A GIGANTIC piece of space debris has crashed to Earth after falling from the sky over Burma.

The massive object is the size of a large car and appears to be the wreckage of a rocket or missile.

The huge piece of space debris was 4.5m long and 1.2m wide

It was found in Kachin state, where it plunged into a jade mine and then bounced 50 metres into a mud pit.

A Chinese satellite is believed to have blasted into space aboard a rocket on the same day, although it is not yet known whether this launch is connected to the wreckage.

Residents of a nearby village heard a huge crash when the 4.5m long and 1.2m wide object smashed into the ground.

A piece of metal emblazoned with Chinese writing also sliced through a nearby house, but its residents miraculously escaped injury.

“We were all afraid of that explosion,” local Ko Maung Myo told the Myanmar Times.

“Initially, we thought it was a battle. The explosion made our houses shake.

“We saw the smoke from our village.”

Locals also reported an acrid smell around the object.

“The metal objects are assumed to be part of a satellite or the engine parts of a plane or missile,” the newspaper Global New Light of Myanmar reported.

However, the publication said it “could not be confirmed whether the launch of the [Chinese] satellite and the metal objects found in Kachin State were related”.
