Residents of Hamamatsu City in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan were left stunned when a mysterious object resembling an 'iron ball' was discovered on the beach. The object measured around 1.5 meters in diameter and left many wondering what it could be.
The object had remained undetected until recently when locals stumbled across it while out for a stroll on the beach. It is still unclear what the iron ball-sized object is or how it got there, although speculation has been rampant online.
The local government said they are running tests to identify the object and are asking anyone with knowledge or information about it to come forward. In the meantime, authorities urge people to keep their distance from it until more can be determined about its origins and purpose.
