Japanese officials in Hamamatsu are investigating a “suspicious” ball that washed up on the beach.

A local resident reported the object after taking a walk. The sphere is about four feet in diameter and is likely made of iron.

Officials first inspected the ball for bombs, and found the sphere was not explosive. An x-ray determined the ball was hollow. It is speculated that the object may be a mooring buoy, and coastal management will come collect the ball.
