    Craters on targets, crop circles in fields. Must be Aliens . And not a spark no flash of light to be seen.

    Pellet fragments appear to show the head being pushed back into the skirt creating a ball that looks like it may slightly protrude out of the centre of the mainly flat face.

    Paddle is the one off of the above target the strikes still appear to have dots in their centres.

    I remember from my long gone geology student says something about comet impact craters commonly having raised centres - something to do with the relative densities of the comet and the ground it strikes....

    ... or something like that.....
