‘Metal starfish’ discovered in Rhode Island

A mysterious object found in the surf on a beach in Westerly has been raising eyebrows this week.

Situated in the shallows a short distance from the Watch Hill lighthouse, the object, which features 8 stainless steel ‘legs’ and is capped with concrete, has left local authorities scratching their heads.

“It looks like a metal starfish because it has these eight legs that go down from the center,” said Peter Brockmann, president of the East Beach Association.

“Many locals don’t remember seeing it before last summer. The harbor master has never seen it or heard of it before so it’s a real mystery.”

“How it got here. It’s the strangest thing because this not something that floats. It’s very heavy.”

The mystery object has since been cordoned off and is due to be removed as early as next week.
