    It says,
    "... et est tombée du ciel en novembre dans une région reculée du nord de la Namibie. La boule métallique non identifiée, retrouvée près d'un village dans le nord du pays, à 750 km de la capitale Windhoek..."
    Google Earth indicates there are only a couple of places in Namibia that could be, either in the vicinity of 17.5 S, 12.3 E or 18.0 S, 22.1 E. Looking at the ground in the picture accompanying the article, I'd guess it's the first of those.
    So did anything reenter there in November?
