VIDEO: Terrifying UFO Explosion Over Russia
Was the huge, headline-making explosion over the skies of Russia yesterday a meteorite (as reported), an alien spacecraft (as some speculate), or something else?
Video footage confirms that a tremendous object hurtled across Chelyabinsk, a sparsely-inhabited area of Russia. The force caused by its explosion has injured between 120 and 400 people, according to conflicting reports. (Most of the injuries are reported due to glass shattering.) The Guardian reported that “600 sq metres (6,500 sq ft) of a roof at a zinc factory had collapsed.”
A Russian official categorically denied anything sinister was afoot, however. “It’s not a plane,” he said.
Was it a UFO? A meteorite shower? Terrorism? No one really knows for sure. Here’s another video of the explosion (NSFW):
