A large fireball, possibly a meteor or missal, crashed down into Eastern Siberia a few days ago and at least two videos have surfaced of the event online. The object was so large and bright that it lit up the entire night sky:
A day after the event, a medium-sized earthquake shook Central Italy. It appears space weather is wacky right now. What do you think of this story? Have you seen a meteor?
A large light or craft hovering over a neighborhood in Moscow was caught on camera and has made headlines:
Could this be a large drone? Or is this something more top-secret or exotic? What do you think?
A town in Siberia was shocked to see an ominous cloud lurking in the daytime sky, and many called emergency services reporting a UFO or mushroom cloud. Fears of nuclear war ran rampant on social media for a while before meteorologists explained the cloud as a natural phenomenon called an "anvil cloud," (cumulonimbus incus) which can occur during thunderstorms:
Similarly odd clouds have been reported in the world recently. TexasUFOs reported on a UFO-shaped cloud in Fort Worth that was witnessed right after a craft was seen shooting behind it. As well, photographs of a large UFO cloud in Colombia took the Internet by storm back in June, with most concluding it was just a Lenticular cloud formation.
Compare these photos of clouds to photos of a real Mushroom Cloud, triggered by a nuclear explosion (bomb). It is important to note that mushroom clouds can be caused by volcanic explosions as well:
What do you think this could was formed by? Natural weather? A nuclear explosion? Aliens?
Really incredible videos from Russia, which show a large almost electrical ball of light, have been posted to YouTube. The videos were also shared on MUFON (cases 78074 and 78072). The site XISSUFOToday has done an analysis on the footage and suggests that this is not ball lighting, as some have thought, but instead "spherical plasma formations," which apparently can be created when water is supercharged with heat. However, this is not something that should happen naturally in an environment, as does ball lightning (which stays in a fixated place), and so the author of the analysis suggests these are UFOs:
July 25th: Ball of light lands
July 29th: Large ball of light hovers around ground

What do you think is happening in Russia? Could something strange be going on with Earth's weather to have produced these light phenomenons? Think you can explain these sightings better? Discuss this sighting and more in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter.
Holy missile tests, Batman! Remember a little over a month ago, when everyone from Florida to California saw that amazing ball of light from space enter the sky? It was an alarming sight for many, and was explained as a rocket carrying a satellite into space. (Pretty cool.)
Well, what say you this time people? Pretty much the exact same "phenomenon" was spotted in Russia weeks later... this time around, the best guess would be missile test, as Russia did launch one off the coast of the Mediterranean the same night:
Missile test, rocket, wormhole, UFO, whatever! - this is some great footage worth checking out!
