Large Chunk of Ice Falls From Sky in California

`A chunk of ice dropped out of the sky and left a huge hole in the ground this weekend at Oakland’s Bushrod Park in California, and not even astronomy experts know where it came from.

Witnesses said it sounded as if someone had dropped a liter of Coca-Cola out of a 10-story building and the ice chunk had left behind a big hole. [..]

Jacek Purat, a witness to the falling ice, grabbed a piece and is storing it in his freezer. He says it came out of the southwestern sky, slammed into the ground and exploded into pieces. [..]

It burrowed about two-and-a-half feet into the ground, where Oakland firefighters retrieved it.’
