Text bolded by me (CF)          

     Several weeks later, on April 14 [1958 from previous case], a large mass descended from the sky about 9 pm and landed in Sydney harbour. A tremendous explosion took place; it shook hundreds of waterfront homes and was heard for miles around. Water police searched the entire area but no trace of wreckage came to light. Oddly enough, none of the houses in the vicinity was damaged in any way. Various explanations were offered; one was that a Russian or U.S. satellite had crashed into the harbour; while another opined that a drifting mine had exploded, but experts and officials made it known that none of these theories were at all likely.
