NARRATOR: West Linn, Oregon. 1902. Walking home after a day’s
work, pioneer Ellis Hughes spots an enormous
and unusually shaped boulder hidden in the woods. Curious, he pulls out his
hammer and strikes the rock. He jumps, startled, as it
rings loudly, like a bell. Over the next several days,
Hughes digs tirelessly to uncover a historic
treasure, the largest meteorite ever found
in North America, the Willamette Meteorite. JONATHAN YOUNG: The
Willamette Meteor is enormous. The actual shape of the
meteor has changed over time. It now looks something
like a piece of modern art. It is fascinating and enormous. The thing’s the size of a car. MAN: If we look at the makeup
of the Willamette Meteorite, it’s got iridium, germanium,
gallium, and nickel. It weighs about 15 tons. It’s a very large object. MAN: The nickel actually
helps it from not corroding. And it, of course,
shows evidence of having gone through the atmosphere. You know, it’s pitted. And what’s interesting,
it landed intact. It didn’t break into
a billion pieces. So it’s a quite
remarkable meteorite. The Willamette Meteorite
is an example not only of a strange meteorite
arriving intact, but also that it had a profound
effect on the local people. It became kind of a shrine to
them, a message from the gods. NARRATOR: Long before Ellis
Hughes discovered the meteorite in 1902, a Native American tribe
called the Clackamas, who’ve inhabited Western
Oregon for centuries, were aware of this
extraterrestrial object. They also believed it
had special powers. ARIEL BAR TZADOK:
The Clackamas tribe, they had a long, long history
of interaction with this rock. They would look at this rock as
a gift, a conduit which united heaven, earth, and with water. Within the stone itself there
are holes in there from erosion and the like, which
gathered pools of water. Now, this water was used for
healing purposes or blessing. In other words,
there was something in the water which was
gathered from this meteor that had energetic power. JONATHAN YOUNG: They
would dip their arrowheads and their spirit
tips into the water, thinking that this ritual
would sharpen the blades and help them in their hunt. WILLIAM HENRY: The Clackamas
named the meteorite Tomanowos, and believed that
it was, in fact, a messenger of their sky god. This is hugely significant,
because it tells us that, in fact, that
rock is not just a rock, it’s an actual link to an
extraterrestrial being. We’re talking about a 15-ton
meteorite that crash landed, but yet there’s no
evidence of an impact. I think we have to go back
to the original Clackamas connection that says
that perhaps there’s extraterrestrial intervention
involved in the positioning of this meteorite. JASON MARTELL: They firmly
believed it was brought here by someone intentionally. They actually thought that
it came from the gods, not by chance that
it fell from the sky.

  1. Watch new episodes of Ancient Aliens Saturdays at 10/9c, and stay up to date on all of your favorite History Channel shows at history.com/schedule.

  2. THANK YOU EXCELENT VERY GOOD ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  3. Umm…. I think itโ€™s just a meteor. Not any aliens sent it. I think itโ€™s just that the meteor was lucky and hit our earth.

  4. A lot of this info is contradicting itself..it was buried, then it was found and then subsequently we're told it was worshipped by people for generations…but it was buried for all that time? I dunno maybe not paying those writers enough to be big brain time

  5. LMFAOROTF ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Love the title of this video.
    Not going to watch it but funny.

    Next from the History Channel: "Half-Devil Babies"
    "Hitler's UFO Yacht"
    "The Sheeple Autopsy"
    "Invisible Unicorn Files"
    "Famous Alien Hunters"

    ….anything for blithering idiots.

  6. "they" didn't send that cause "they" ain't from space, try inter dimensional beings, old n new testament demons… but dimensional all the same ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘บ

  7. If there is something special about that rock is that is full of history ๐Ÿ˜• nothing to do with aliens.

  8. This show was good 10 years ago when they covered huge monolithic structures. I think they are scraping the bottom of the barrel now…

  9. I'd say,it was so hot,when it hit the ground, it would have stayed intact. But,what do I know,I didn't know,you just take your hammer out,and bash it,1st thing?

  10. The tribe (18th century): It might have been sent from the gods…
    Pseudo Scientists (2020): This clearly means that it was in fact sent from extraterrestrial beings
    Me: Facepalm..

  11. When I was still living in nyc I went to the Hayden planetarium where I saw this meteor, I couldn't stop touching it, it fascinated me, knowing that it came from outer space just amazed me.

  12. (What If) ..Its an Alien craft, but we're just too dumb and inferior as a species to figure out how to disable the "Meteor" cloak and then properly open it. LOL

  13. It stayed intact because it landed long ago either during the flood or it landed in a lava flow or it could have crashed during the ice age and landed in deep snow or very deep muddy ground..

  14. What exotic metal melted outta those voids that are left!!! Look around you will find!! Possibly missing/unknown core elements i believe exist.

  15. I've seen this a long time ago. It could of had devices prior to landing. Metals and water definitely can have unique properties. Charged water sounds delicious ๐Ÿ”Ž

  16. This TV channelย  have good documentary series but they kill it with every 5 MTS commercials during the main show about other series and keep repeatingย  same commercial every 5 MTS…. very boring

  17. Ooooor follow me on this, it got to that location due to the ice sheet pushing in from its impact site and destroying the crater in the proccess ooooor it survived impact because it hit the ice sheet itself amd as the global temp when up and the ice melted it just sat in the same spot till it was touching solid ground

  18. Dang alien gods gave us a Swiss cheese rock๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  19. What if the trajectory was so shallow that it just traveled in the atmosphere being stuck in earth's gravity, knocked down alot of trees so instead of a crash site,more of a line or course of travel??

  20. Thanks for the actual news about it. It's cool. But all the silly speculation making those people seem unreliable! Why can't you just give facts & leave out the bs? I don't get it. It's great by itself, then made into weirdness. Tired of vids that do this.

  21. OMG ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ›ฐ๏ธโ˜„๏ธ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ‘ป Awesome I love Extraterrestrial Aliens, Crop Circles, Cattle Mutilations & UFOs! Now this is what I'm talking about, rad!

  22. It looks like a spear used by the gigantics. You can see the round hole on the top, like it's connected to some kind of stick or something.
