It’s an unidentified floating object.
Officials in Oregon are trying to determine if debris that washed ashore Friday afternoon belonged to a SpaceX rocket.
More than 100 SpaceX rockets have been shot into orbit since 2010.
The alleged space junk, a large black cylindrical tube, washed up along Alsea Bay in Lincoln County and was reported to local police shortly thereafter, according to a report from The Oregonian.
Authorities who contacted SpaceX said the object could be a “composite overwrapped pressure vessel,” which are commonly found in spacecraft.
The object was deemed non-hazardous and transported to an unidentified location for further study.
Reps for SpaceX did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Post.
