Something strange falls from the sky
Mikaya Shears was riding her horse across the fields at the farm where she and her parents live in
Australia last November, when she saw something very strange on the ground. ‘At first I was
afraid to touch it!’ she said. ‘I thought something may jump out of it!’ It was a 22 kilo ball made of
lots of different metal parts.
Mikayla called her dad and he came in a truck and drove it back to the farmhouse. People don’t
drive hundreds of miles of a field. ‘It dropped from above!’ he said. ‘I was sure of that!’
Mikaya’s father emailed a photo of the ball to the Planet Museum.
He was told that the ball was possibly part of a rocket. Two days earlier a rocket was used to fly an
America satellite into space to study the sun. Most of it fell into the sea after the satellite was
safely in space, but maybe this part didn’t.
‘I know a lot about cows and sheep.’ Mikaya said, ‘but I don’t know anything about rockets. I want
to find out more about them now. Perhaps I’ll be an astronaut one day!’

AMAZING PLACES
Greenland has a very interesting summer. In the months of May, June and July, the sun never sets
so there’s daylight for twenty-four hours every day. In winter, thing are very different because the
sun never rises! It’s dark for twenty-four hours every day! Can you imagine seeing the moon and
the starts at the lunchtime?
Antarctica is an amazing place. It’s covered in snow and ice, but it rarely snows and it almost
never rains. This mean it’s a desert. Explorers and tourists visit Antarctica, but it’s too cold to live
there. There are penguins and birds on the coast and fish and whales in the ocean, but it isn’t warm
enough for most animals.
Imagine hot sun and rain every day of year! This is what it’s like in the Amazon rainforest. Here
there’s no such thing as summer and winter. The temperature changes very little and there’s no dry

season. Rain and sunshine help plants grow. This is why there are so many tall trees and plants in
the rainforest.
