A chunk of particles from a SpaceX launch has turned up on somebody’s farm in central Washington, native authorities reported Friday (April 2) — about one week after the falling rocket debris sparked reports of “shooting stars” the U.S. Pacific Northwest. 

Based on the Grant County Sheriff’s Workplace, the recovered object seems to be a composite overwrapped stress vessel, or COPV, belonging to the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket that launched March 4 from NASA’s Kennedy Area Middle in Florida, on a mission dubbed Starlink 17.
