This is one of the more interesting phenomenon. It's fascinating.

"The object in question is made of accreted grinding residue. It forms in a manner similar to a common stalagmite when metal castings are “cleaned” on large stationary grinders."

Repped. Totally awesome debunking.

I was not familiar with this until I saw the thread, but why would anyone thing that a a ribbed hunk of aluminum with some traces of other meatal was an alien artifact anyway? It looks like some form of scrap even when you don't know what it is.

Kinda looks like what we use to call train turds. Occasionally the wheels, or wheel on a train would lock up when the train was stopping, grinding a little off of the wheel and leaving what looks like a steel turd.

Lots of these claims, Including the Alien mummy found that was mentioned in another thread. Numerous Bigfoot sightings also, So many that there are numerous TV "reality" shows about it. Paranormal/Fortean subjects became very mainstream in recent years.

I also doubt Aliens are traveling around in old clunkers that fall apart and leave pieces behind. Funny to think of one of them back home on their planet at the used spaceship lot, Telling the manager "Look, You sold me a lemon and I want a refund"
