    Could be spacecraft debris. Old satellites burn up in the atmosphere all the time, and small pieces sometimes survive.

    OK was probably a car fire somewhere near - those things have a habit of taking off like a rocket when a car is burning

    I'd expect to see some scorching. Also, I've never seen a satellite component with a large, painted label like that. Maybe the Russians do that, but.....

    I'm guessing a gas canister of some sort, similar to those used to help open hatchback doors, only for something large and industrial.

    A few years ago a parachutist video-recoded a rock falling past him a little-after chute opening. The initial guestimate was a large meteorite-fall that coincided with his descent path. Months later a video specialist determined that the 'rock' was actually pretty small… and that it's trajectory/velocity suggested that it was probably released from the last area of his chute to open fully... IE it was a pebble caught-up in the packed chute canopy.

    Any info about a light plane that crashed into a California house. Parachute found but pilot fatality. House was occupied and on fire but occupants escaped.
