A black stone fell from the sky and landed at the NOHS.
BACOLOD CITY: A flaming stone that reportedly fell from the sky landed at the Negros Occidental High School (NOHS) campus in this city on Friday, Cebu Daily News (CDN) Digital reported.

According to NOHS principal Mario Amaca, he and other persons in the school heard a loud explosion at about 4pm.

Janette Sarcillo, the wife of one of the school’s security guards, later reported that she found the “space stone” that fell near the guards’ barracks.

“I saw the flaming object fall from the sky. It grew bigger and bigger as it approached the ground and made a loud explosion as it landed,” she said.

A geologist of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office will visit the NOHS campus on Monday to identify the stone.

Amaca said the fireball turned out to be a shiny black stone that is about two and a half inches thick and three inches long.

“It is almost as big as my fist and looks like a meteorite,” he said.

“It is very hard. If you scratch it against a sharp object, it turns white and goes back to its original colour,” he added.
