The person behind the People's Daily Twitter account wasn't the only one who got all excited about UFOs today: Chinanews.com reports that "three unidentified flying objects" fell from the sky and landed in rural Heilongjiang Province on Friday. 

The Yi'an county government confirmed in the afternoon that Mengchang villagers heard a big noise and then saw a big ball of fire falling down to a vegetable garden belonging to a villager.

Photos taken by villagers showed that the object is a metal ball, half-covered by a layer with a jagged edge.

Two other similar objects were spotted falling from the sky and down to the neighboring Baiquan county.

The two places have been blocked off, and an investigation is underway.
