Alien Spacecraft Explodes Over Greenland Releasing 2.1 kilotons of Explosive Force

Near US Military Base at Ultima Thule. Was it a weapon that missed its target?

The pilot hoped to avoid encounters with savage earthlings. Or perhaps he came from a planet which, like Saturn's enormous moon Titan, is cooler than 200 degrees fahrenheit. We may never know for sure. But one thing is certain: The fireball that lit up the sky over Greenland early Tuesday morning, July 25, 2018, was of extraterrestrial origin.

Ultima Thule is the northernmost military installation on this planet. So some would ascribe a far more sinister motive to whatever species launched the fireball. Was it a weapon that missed its target?

Lat month, a fiery meteor was detected in Greenland close to a U.S. Air Force base with 2.1 kilotons of force, as reported by scientists on Twitter.

On July 25, an object moving at about 15 miles/second, or 54,000 mph flew above Thule Air Base. The U.S. Air Force did not immediately report the event or respond to the crash, according to The Aviationist. However, Air Force spokeswoman Capt. Hope Cronin said in an email to that no one was injured and that the meteor didn't affect or harm any activity at the base.

Though concerning, the object had a relatively small effect. "By comparison, the 2013 meteor over Chelyabinsk, Russia released over 200 times the energy of the Greenland meteor," JoAnna Wendel, a NASA spokeswoman, said in the report by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) confirmed the object's speed, though the actual size of the meteor remains unknown. It was also reported that the object was about 27 miles (43 km) north of Thule Air Base.

The mass and explosive power of the object indicates that it was a powered craft, but the design capacity exceeded anything a terrestrial military can currently field.
