According to The Siberian Times, recent UFO sightings have social media buzzing with accounts of strange objects being spotted in the sky. The most recent in Ulan-Ude, the capital city of the Russian Republic of Buryatia.
The witness reported seeing a glowing object in the sky with “a lot of green lights, some red and blue.” She said she was watching the object with her son and two others who had been passing by when the object disappeared and then reappeared much closer. It made a sound like a car engine.
“When it stopped right above us, I could not say a word and saw the two men running to hide in a building,” the woman told The Siberian Times. “It was a very large saucer with bright green lights in the middle. My son got scared, grabbed my hand and we ran away. I never believed that something like that could exist.”
Other residents of Ulan-Ude say they also spotted strange lights in the sky. One witness said they regularly see a bright glowing object in the middle of the night that they watch from their balcony. Another witness said they saw red lights that appear and disappear.
In the nearby village of Khorinsk, a witness says he saw a bright fast moving ball of light moving through the sky last week.
He reported: “I saw this with my own eyes. At about 7pm I went outside for a smoke, and noticed a glowing ball in the sky, very bright. It wasn’t moving too fast. At first I thought it was another satellite, but when my eyes gradually got used to the dark, I estimated the distance between the ground and the ball, it was about 200-300 metres.”
The witness continued, “It definitely wasn’t a satellite. It was moving differently. The lights were gradually getting less bright and it was glowing red. I didn’t hear a sound, it’s very quiet where I live. There are no cars. I was standing silently and couldn’t understand what was it. I observed it for 20-30 seconds. So scary. What could it be?”
According to The Siberian Times, a similar sighting was reported in 2010, about 100 miles to the west across nearby Lake Baikal, in a town called Listvyanka. The witness, Nikita Tomin, took a picture showing three glowing green lights.
“It flew right above us, very low. The object was shining down on us with a green light. We were a bit scared,” reported Tomin.
