What Landed on the Bat Yam Beach on Shabbos?

When the object landed on the Bat Yam beach on shabbos, the lifeguards and visitors were uncertain what it was, with reports circulating of an UFO. The object landed and continued burning, leading to reports of a meteor.

Ynet quotes expert Darryl Pitt, founder of the Macovich Collection of Meteorites, who explains it is a misnomer to believe meteorites burn, perhaps due to the fact many people refer to them as a fireball. He explained that the ‘fire ball’ effect is the result of a meteorite’s luminescent gases, not an actual fire. He explains that are not on fire and do not generate smoke.

One lifeguard, Yossi Mizrachi, insists that despite dunking it in the water numerous times, it continued to burn.

The small object was taken to the Israel Geological Institute for analysis.

  1. Possibly a tiny piece of rock or solidified lava from the Iceland volcano that got blown so high up into the atmosphere that it was carried all the way to Eretz Yisrael.
