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.
