Follow up on sphere found near Huntsvill, AL

Just wanted to give some info reference your unknown sphere reported 10/13/02. I am a Bomb Disposal Techniciation with the US Army and can say that the item in the photograph doesn't look like explosive ordnance but may be a sub section of a piece of ordnance, possably a gas bottle generator from a rocket, and may contain explosive componants. (PLEASE BE NICE TO THE ITEM). Due to the location the item found I would consider it military in nature, and possibly experimental.

One question I have is, can you detect a filler in the item? does it slosh like it's filled with fluid? or an uneven weight on any side of the item? Please don't open the item untill positive i.d. can be made.

What I would suggest is to contact the US Army EOD unit at Redstone and they will X-ray the item, You will have to contact your local law enforcement and have them actually call the Army EOD unit because we don't respond off post unless called by civilian law enforcement.
