A UFO in the skies above Siberia is being investigated by Emergencies Ministry staff after concerned locals claimed they were visited by something unexplained.
Residents of Ossinsky district in Irkutsk Region said a loud, glowing object appeared in the sky – but nobody has been able to clarify what it was.
Security services responsible for air defence could not confirm any flights in the area, while search and rescue teams found no evidence that the aircraft had crashed.
Meanwhile seismic stations around Baikal confirmed that there were no earthquakes which might have caused the noise, while astronomers in Irkutsk have suggested that it could be a meteorite, Interfax reported.
