The crews of six passenger jets have reported seeing a UFO in the skies above Moscow. The incident occurred at around 7.30 pm last night.
Pilots say they saw on object that looked like a burning artillery shell at an altitude of 10,000 metres. Witnesses say they also heard a sound accompany the flash.
The Defense Ministry says it did not register anything unusual in local airspace.
Both aliens and residents of Russia have shown a great interest in each other lately, with the media constantly reporting ET encounters, especially in Siberia.
In August 2011, a resident of the Kemerovo Region of Siberia shot a few strange-looking UFO-like objects.
About a year ago, a group of students claimed to have seen a spaceship of an ‘unearthly nature’ in the woods of the Kemerovo Region during a geological expedition. The authenticity of the video is not proven, nor has it been proved that the tape is a fake.
In April this year, residents of another Siberian region, the Republic of Buryatia, shot a YouTube hit showing a very true-to-life “dead alien” body, which later turned out to be skilfully made of chicken skin and filled with bread.
Kemerovo is also believed is one of the few places where relic hominids – so-called yeti – are living, along with the Himalayas, the American Pacific North-west and other remote regions. Since 2009, hunters have reported seeing two-meter ape-like animals in the Tashtagol area, and footprints believed to belong to the creatures have been found in the Azass Cave.
In early October 2011, Kemerovo’s authorities hosted a conference for specialists hunting for traces of the yeti.
