On November 17, 2015, a mysterious white light object appeared in the sky over Omsk, Siberia, Russia. Residents in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, over a thousand kilometers away, also witnessed it.
Foreign media editor Scott C. Waring expressed his opinion, suggesting that this could be a massive UFO entering Earth’s atmosphere over Russia.
He wrote, “I think this UFO is coming from a black hole it opened. There is a circular barrier around the UFO, and people can also see such a barrier behind it. The hole behind it looks like a wormhole.”
Waring also wrote, “This UFO looks like the one that appeared over Los Angeles last week. Aliens understand that we will eventually know of their existence, so they have decided to do this no matter what the consequences.”
The object with the shape of a UFO appeared over Omsk, Siberia, on the night of November 17th, local time. In fact, residents within a thousand kilometers, such as Tyumen and Novosibirsk, and even as far as Astana, Kazakhstan, could witness this mysterious flying object.
Someone captured footage of the sighting from a moving car in the IKEA area of Novosibirsk. Astronomers from the Siberian State University of Geosystems and Technologies confirmed that the glowing object was not a comet but did not rule out the possibility of it being a meteor.
However, not everyone shares this view. Some believe it was a Russian test launch of the RS-12M Topol intercontinental missile. The missile was launched from the Kapustin Yar launch site in southern Russia at 3:12 PM local time, landing in Sary Shagan, central-eastern Kazakhstan. Kapustin Yar is approximately 1000 kilometers from Omsk.
Analyst Camila Sharzhanova stated that this was the second secret test flight of a new RS-12M Topol missile and explained, “The missile was spinning, so its trajectory did not change, and its side vents released exhaust gases.”
Some expressed doubts, suggesting that if the glowing object was a missile, it should have been visible over Tyumen and Novosibirsk, both over 1200 kilometers away, according to the missile’s trajectory.
Vladimir Krupko, the head of the Omsk Astronomical Observatory, said, “I am one hundred percent sure it was a missile. I saw it had a ring and the shape of moving clouds, which is most likely exhaust from the engine.”
Previously, similar effects have been confirmed to be caused by missiles, but it could also be a part falling from a rocket or space debris.
However, Krupko added, “I haven’t seen any information about missile launches, I only know that a military satellite was launched in Plesetsk in the afternoon.” Plesetsk is located in Ukraine, more than 2000 kilometers away from Omsk.
Some online users suggest that it might have been an atmospheric refraction or an effect caused by various factors, with many historical UFO explanations falling into this category.
