NEW JERSEY (FOX 5 NY) - A suspicious white package attached to a red parachute fell from the sky and onto a solar panel field in South Brunswick, New Jersey on Tuesday. It turns out the package, which contained a note about President Donald Trump, was a weather monitoring device launched by NASA.
The device made a hissing sound but was not a bomb, said South Brunswick Police.
Another similar device had landed in NJ in recent days.
The note reportedly read: "NASA Atmospheric Research Instrument NOT A BOMB!" If this lands near the President, we at NASA wish him a great round of golf."
The President had been staying at his golf course in Bedminster, approximately 30 miles away.
"Investigators determined the item was 1 of 6 released on Sunday from the New Brunswick area by NASA scientist. These devices will come down after a period of time at random locations," said police.
