At first, it seemed like a mysterious space capsule had crashed in the desert.
When local officials investigated a tip from a NASA scientist, they discovered a silver metal drum with an attached parachute in Casa Grande, Arizona, according to ABC 15. The strange object was found sitting on the side of the highway with the words “United States” and “Capt. J. Millard” written on it, along with an American flag.
On Monday morning, officials from the Arizona Department of Public Safety unveiled the truth.
