Residents of Talisayan and La Paz in the west coast were puzzled by what they witnessed around 5 a.m. Wednesday:

A big ball of fire that flashed the skies and landed on the coastal water before exploding and illuminating nearby villages.

Sr. Insp. Edilberto Alvarez, police station 9 chief, confirmed the mysterious phenomenon but could not himself explain what  it was.

Alvarez said a dull but loud explosion occurred later at the sea water fronting Barangay Talisayan.

Some residents believed it was an UFO  (unidentified flying object), while others said it was a meteor from the outer space.

“It was confusing because based on my own experience an improvised bomb if exploded  would not create such bright and colorful light covering a massive area compared to that one… whatever it was,” Alverez said.

He dismissed the possibility that the ball of fire that exploded was man-made.

It was learned the areas were brightened up briefly by the passing mysterious ball of fire that hit the middle of the sea water in front of the NY canning company in Talisayan and exploded.

The police official said none of the people in the area could also tell who were responsible for such mysterious explosion.
