A piece of space junk that was supposed to enter Earth above New Zealand has landed on a sheep farm in New South Wales.

The piece of space junk was found on farmer Mick Miners’ property.

Miners didn’t know it was there until days later.

The piece of space junk was 3 m tall and weighed about 20kg. The space junk is likely to be from a SpaceX crewed mission launched about 2 years ago.

It’s the biggest piece of space junk to fall on Australia since NASA’s space station crashed to earth with a piece landing in Western Australia’s outback forty years ago.
