Out There stories relating to "Russia UFO"

This video has long since been dismissed as a staged hoax, but Lee Spiegel of the Huffington Post asks why, if that is true, it is suddenly being resuscitated by various Russian news sources? Our take: it's a hoax and they're having a slow news day. But we could always be wrong.

Whitley Strieber asks is anybody has ever seen a figure resembling the one depicted in the video, please write him at whitley@strieber.com. If the body depicted is hoaxed, a lot of time and money was spent on fabricating it, which also goes for the rest of the video. Our assumption was that these were clips from a Russian movie that never got released, and we still incline in that direction.

This is the first time I have seen a video of anything that looked like this. If it's real, you'd think that most of its life would be, to say the least, inconvenient. But who am I to say, your mere Out There editor? Whatever this is, it qualifies as being 'out there,' no question about that. I've sent the link to our video experts and will add their responses.

Two of our experts have weighed in:

Expert One: It's fake. The contrived camera shake is even faker than the critter.

Expert Two: I don't know, looks pretty good to me. Big bug.

This appears to be a good video from Russia. Interestingly, unlike English-language videos which are monitored by US intelligence agencies, the comments below this one appear to be from normal, open-minded people. We have found that a great number of YouTube trolls that make disparaging comments about UFO videos in English are actually phantom accounts apparently created by American intelligence agencies. They don't appear to bother with Russian posts, at least not yet. This is classified as a probable unknown.

This object probably is not a bird or an insect near the camera lens because it is moving in a very straight line and is not surrounded by the faint blur of wings generally seen in bird videos. It appears to be a genuine unknown, and a reminder that they are really all around us.

These lights do not appear to be an aircraft, but as this is a night shot, there is no way to be certain. Still, probably an authentic video and the odds are that this is an unknown.

Initially, this appears to be a plane, but as the video continues, the shape is revealed to be very unusual.

Thousands of witnesses observed these lights over St. Petersburg on April 9. This is a compilation of 4 videos.

A lighted object similar to this appeared a few days ago over St. Petersburg, Russia. This object, taped during the day, has appeared over Lake Ladoga. It is unlikely to be balloons because the internal lighting seems too bright.

There is no reason to assume that this video is hoaxed, but it is not possible to tell what it is. The lights are not a typical aircraft configuration, but it could easily be a balloon or a dirigible. Interesting possibility, but no proof it's an unknown.

An unusual object has fallen in Siberia. It was found in a forest by local villagers and dragged into a town, and has now been confiscated by police. The origin of the object is unknown.

If this object is above the atmosphere, then it's immense, on an order of hundreds of miles across. Even if it's in the upper atmosphere, it's quite large. As to what it might be, your Out There editor won't even hazard a guess.

This OpenMinds article points out that the UFO seen surrounded by a cloud in Russia is quite similar to one seen in Mexico, and shows side by side photos.

This one is quite strange. It's moving too fast to be a celestial object and it certainly isn't a plane. A true unknown.

And here we thought sure it was a dragonfly drone! This looks like a pretty airtight explanation...

This object appears to be somewhat similar to the Dragonfly Drones that appeared over California in the summer of 2007.

This could have been a meteor, but pilots see meteors frequently enough to make one think that they wouldn't have mistaken one for a UFO.

Of course these objects could be small incendiaries of some kind, but the first one is very bright for anything except a flare, which it is not.

The US must possess hours of similar footage. What a shame that they keep it hidden.

This is a strong video, as long as the film is indeed from 1968, which it does appear to be. Graded B.

This could be a balloon or dirigible with strange placement of lights, but given the number of permits needed to fly such a thing in Russia, that seems doubtful. The video is not a CGI effect. Graded B. Thanks to Deb Kauble.

This was originally explained away as a meteor. But they don't generally return for a second try, so it has to be an unknown.

The strange catlike voice that the air traffic controller heard could well be an encrypted communication from the unknown craft. But who were they talking to on an open frequency, and why was a secret aircraft in controlled airspace? It's all very strange.

No way to evaluate this nighttime video except to say that it looks interesting.
