    That looks rather interesting. If it fell down from above, it must be 
    space-related, mustn't it? It didn't fall from an aeroplane!

    It does look artificial. The straight gouge at which your finger is 
    pointing in the third picture, and (to a lesser extent) the thin 
    sharp edge visible in the second picture, do not look natural.
    If you don't think it is space junk, and you don't think it is an 
    iron meteorite, and you think it is artificial, what do you think it 
    is? Part of a UFO?
    How dense is it? Have you done the good old Archimedes test - found 
    its volume by putting it into water? How much does it weigh, and how 
    much does the weight drop when it's underwater?
