A strange flying object was spotted in the sky above Moscow today, December 18. Muscovites could see a large triangle-shaped object hovering above Red Square. Many people filmed the object on their cell phones and uploaded the videos on YouTube.
The videos stirred quite a controversy in Western media outlets, which concluded that the triangle above the heart of Moscow was an unidentified flying object. The object, about 1.5 kilometers wide, looked like the imperial cruiser from the Star Wars, The Daily Telegraph wrote. The object was hovering above the Kremlin for several hours. The videos of the strange object have gone to the top of YouTube Russia.
Nick Pope, a former Ministry of Defence UFO analyst, said it was one of the most extraordinary UFO clips that he had ever seen.
"At first I thought this was a reflection but it appears to move behind a power line, ruling out this theory,” Mr. Pope said.
A spokesman for aerospace journal Jane's News said: "We have no idea what it is."
Most recent sightings of anomalous objects in Moscow include the unusual cloud that was hanging outside Moscow, on the city’s ring road.
