Officers from six different agencies responded to a call about a
device with a parachute that landed in Henry County.

Martinsville, VA -- It was a busy afternoon for safety officials
in Henry County.

Officers from six different agencies responded to a call in
Henry County about a "suspicious object" falling from the sky
into a residential back yard.

The UFO, described as a small, orange-colored parachute attached
to an electronics device, first hit the roof of a home on
Augusta Street before coming to rest on the ground.

The homeowner, concerned that the object might be an explosive
device, contacted police.

Once officers from the Henry County Sheriff's Office,
Martinsville Police Department, Virginia State Police, Henry
County Department of Public Safety, Dyer Store Volunteer Fire
Department and The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
arrived, the object didn't stay unidentified for long.

Authorities at the scene were able to determine the item was a
device released by the National Weather Service, used for
transmitting weather information.
