A giant UFO resembling an enormous glowing light in the night sky sparked fears of an alien invasion and end of days.
The huge ball of light illuminated the sky in Northern Siberia and Russia last night. Within minutes witnesses were talking about alien’s arriving and end of world.
The extraordinary scenes were captured by photographer Sergey Anisimov in the town of Salekhard, which straddles the Arctic Circle.
He said “I was taken aback for a few minutes, not understanding what was happening. The glowing ball rose from behind the trees and moved in my direction.”
“My first thought was about the most powerful searchlight, but the speed of changing everything around changed the idea of what was happening. The ball began to turn into an arc and gradually dissipated.”
After a while when he was heading back home he heard the local children talking about it as ” portal to other dimension ” and “aliens”.
520 miles far east from photographer Sergey Anisimov an other photographer Alexey Yakovlev admitted that he was really scared when he came across the UFO in Strezhevoi, in the north of Tomsk region.
He said “At first I thought, it was such a radiance of such an unusual form, round in shape. But gradually the ball began to expand, it became clear that this is not some radiance – and it became scary.It’s good that I was not alone – a group of people cannot hallucinate.”
The Russian defense minister also confirmed that an unusual object flying at high speed over northern Siberia.
Experts say that the vivid display of the Northern Lights also known aurora borealis, was under way.
Apart from all of this there is an other theory which is Russian President Vladimir Putin was attempting to frighten the West with grandiose military exercises by his strategic nuclear forces.
Missiles tests were under way from submarines and aircraft last night, and the exercises included the launch of a super-powerful Topol rocket from Plesetsk cosmodrome, 550 miles north of Moscow.
From a mobile launcher, it was successfully aimed at the Kura testing range in Kamchatka on the country’s Pacific coast.
The launch was then confirmed by the defence ministry in Moscow. Other missiles were launched from a submarine and aircraft.
