WALPORT, Ore.-- A fisherman in Alsea Bay found what appeared to be space debris in the water Friday afternoon.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene and secured a perimeter around the object until it was determined that the material was not hazardous.
Space-X was contacted to see if the debris belonged to them, but so far, the company hasn't confirmed that it was from one of their rockets. However, officials with Space-X did say the object is consistent with a composite over wrapped pressure vessel.
This possible space debris comes two weeks after a Falcon 9 rocket was seen lighting up the night sky across the Pacific Northwest as it re-entered Earth's atmosphere.
Just last week, a similar-looking object was found on a farm in Central Washington too.
The object found in Alsea Bay was taken to a secure location for further evaluation.
