A Hoax?

Geologist Dainis Ozols of North Vidzeme Biosphere Reserve says “the object in Mazsalaca, thought to be a meteorite, is merely smoky ember of chemical elements” and that   the wide crater formed around it is man-made.

Not a Hoax!

Uldis Nulle, the head of geology department at Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center believes that a meteorite created the crater,  a report said.

To solve the mystery, two geologists and two astronomers have since traveled to the Mazsalaca site to examine the crater.
