Large chunk of ice falls from the sky in Tully, New York

A chunk of ice larger than a soccer ball fell from a sky above Tully, New York at around 11:45 EDT (15:45 UTC) on Friday, June 21, 2019.

According to local media reports, the object hit the ground very close to where resident Rita Williams was walking by at the time.

Williams said she heard a very odd noise, almost like a firework accompanied by a high pitch squealing song.

"I looked up and saw this enormous white ball fall through the clouds," she said.

The crater it left was 73 cm (29 inches) wide and 13 cm (5 inches) deep, making the chunk of ice larger than a soccer ball.

It's not clear at the time whether this was a megacryometeor or the ice fell off from a plane.

"The only thing that sort of confuses me is that the ice was so beautifully clean and clear, and I would think there would be some kind of residue from the plane and the ice, but who knows," she said.

The video is acting weird on some browsers. You can also see it here.
