After many emails and calls to our office and taking a closer look at images of the wreckage found over the weekend, we can safely confirm that the piece of wreckage is not that of a US military plane but remnamts of a space rocket. In August 2014, two satellites were launched on the European Ariane Galileo ESA rocket and the piece discovered by the reef off Ambergris Caye is just part of the rocket that falls back to earth during its launch into space.

Wish I'd taken a picture now of the big bit outside my house. I assumed it was an everyday washed up item, like the fuselage of a crashed jet.

Curious ..... Do these rocket scientists pay for reef destruction?

I've often wonder if anyone ever gets hit by any of this junk?
