Updated analysis of materials found at the site of an alleged UFO crash in Wales were reportedly publicized Tuesday, arguing they are not Earthly materials.

The analysis focused on the January 1983 alleged UFO crash in Llanilar, a small Welsh village in Great Britain, according to the Daily Star. A strange object reportedly stumbled into a group of trees in the thick of night, scattering bits of metal debris around the area before flying off into the darkness.

Reports from author Mark Olly in an update to his book “Europe’s Roswell: 40 Years Since Impact” suggest six or so piece of scrap were recovered from the wooded area by The Wales Federation of Independent Ufologists, the Daily Star reported. Three of those samples were sent to labs in Australia and the U.S. for additional testing, according to the outlet.

“Australia came in first as ‘Aluminums Foam’, partially agreeing with British Aerospace who back-in-the-day thought it was Aluminum in the form of Duralumin. America then returned their analysis as almost pure Lanthanum, an exotic and extremely expensive to produce metal on the new part of the periodic table,” Olly reportedly wrote in his update.

Neither of these materials were in circulation in 1983, the Daily Star reported. “So we had two different metals in unique and specific forms that were not known to have been developed by the late 1970’s or available for actual use back in 1983. So was it one of ours, was it one of ‘theirs’, or was it some kind of back-engineered or hybrid technology?” Olly reportedly continued.

Other aspects of the materials, such as paint and adhesives, could be identified from additional testing, according to the Daily Star. (RELATED: Major Airport Crowned ‘UFO Hotspot’ After Countless Strange Sightings)

But could we be missing Occam’s Razor from this situation? Rumors of British and U.S. military testing out new technologies over mostly-empty (and even sometimes busy) parts of the U.K. aren’t uncommon. If both of the materials were not yet developed in the 1970s and “not available for use” in 1983, there’s nothing to say the military wasn’t readily using it.

None of this proves the crash was that of a real extraterrestrial ship. It proves the materials exist and the other tests need to be re-run for conclusive answers.
