    My own department could do this (done that before with earlier meteo-wrongs) - I 
    work as a researcher at the Earth Sciences dept. of a University. However, this 
    object is in custody of the Police. I might contact them to suggest them to do a 
    nickel test - just in case.
    But: it was actually because I am quite sure (from its outlook on the pictures)

    candidates for this date & place, however).
