Unkown Satellite-Like Device Falls Into Somalia
By Mohamed Abdi Farah

(SomaliNet) (Corrected version) A baffling device which
resembles a satellite or Unidentified Flying Object (U.F.O) has
landed in a rural area close to Buulo-Burde town, 220 km north
of the Somalia capital Mogadishu, eyewitnesses told Shabelle
radio on Monday.

Villagers report that the device had fallen in a remote jungle
area, some 40km north of Bulo-Burde, killing one camel. No
experts have reached there to find out exactly what the object

The unknown object is sitting on an area of one 100 meter square
as people grew more concern over the device that it might
explode or contaminate the area.

The device is said to be intact and not broken as it gives
alarming signals. No one knows where the satellite-like device
had come from.

"In the evening of last Wednesday, a large device flew over us
and some time later, we heard a big sound, BAM" said Ilyas Ali,
a villager who lives nearby where this large device has fallen.

Ilyas said in the daylight it glitters and but in the nighttime,
it turns lights and speaks a strange language which can't be
understood by the villagers.

The news of the fallen device was too late because of the remote
area it landed and poor communication. Details are emerging in
the coming days.

"(Corrected) Unkown satellite-like device falls into Somalia"

(SomaliNet) The story "Unknown Satellite Like" which we
published on March 26 was initially received from interviews and
coverage done by Mogadishu radio stations. At the time of the
incident many people in the area talked as if they saw the
peculiar object. After many SomaliNet news readers contacted us
about the article, we decided to investigate more and tried to
verify the validity of this strange story.

According to reporters who went to the area, so far no single
person who saw the object could be found. Although everyone
believes the story is true, they all gave the same answer: I
didn't see it with my eyes but...

We might run another update on this story after the reporters
who went to the region go back to Mogadishu. In the meantime,
whether to believe the story or not is up to the reader.
SomaliNet apologizes for publishing it without doing more


Where is Buulo-Burde?

Well the first thing I tried was to locate it on Google Earth
without success I might add, so I found this link:

3 51'0.00"N,  45 34' 0.00"E

Bulo Berde,
Bulo Burti,
Buulo Berde,
Buulo Burte

Next I plugged Buulobarde into Google Earth and found these
location/coordinates: 3 51'0.00"N, 45 34'1.20"E Buulobarde is
shown here:

Next the article states Quote "Object (U.F.O) has landed in a
rural area close to Buulo-Burde town, 220 km north of the
Somalia capital Mogadishu, eyewitnesses told Shabelle radio on

220 kilometers = 136.701662 miles

I checked with Google Earth using ruler
from Mogadishu to Buulobarde I got
124.61 miles a difference of  12.09 miles

124.61 miles = 200.54.. km. So, are we
missing 20 km as stated from the article.

Next the article states end Quote, "Villagers report that the
device had fallen in a remote jungle area, some 40 km north of
Bulo-Burde, killing one camel."

Ok, now lets take 40 kilometers equal to 24.85 miles 200.54 km +
40 km(24.85 miles) = 149.46 miles due North from Buulobarde on
Google Earth.

Satellite-like device landing site:
4 12'49.22"N, 45 34'14.96"E shown here 40 km
North of Buulobarde.

Now I hope with this information things will be crystal clear,
we have come to know where Buulo-Burde is located on the map
plus where upon we might find the location of a UFO landing
site; but lets be quite clear! The most important thing we now
know is where the actual killing of one innocent Camel had taken
