Aliens Send Christmas Tree Ornament as Greeting

A 43 inch diameter "space ball" of unknown metal composition fell from the sky and landed in a remote grassland in - Namibia.  Authorities profess to be "baffled" by what it could be - but come on, dudes, we all know it's a giant ornament that those little grey aliens with the bug eyes sent to us as a Christmas greeting.  These days Christmas preparations start right after Halloween so a November arrival date isn't out of the ordinary :) 

What I want to know is - what kind of material is it made out of that, although being "hollow" it could survive a long fall presumably from outerspace without either burning up in the atmosphere on its way down (ala meterorite) or smashing into smithereens upon impact with the ground! 

A 'hollow' ball with a circumference of 1.1 metres (43 inches),
the ball has a rough surface and appears to consist of "two halves welded together".
It was made of a "metal alloy known to man" and weighed six kilogrammes (13 pounds).
It was found 18 metres from its landing spot, a hole 33 centimetres deep and 3.8 meters wide!
