London: A clip of a triangle-shaped alleged
UFO that hovered ominously over the Kremlin recently has left
Russians baffled and become a YouTube sensation in the
The amateur videos, one taken at night from inside a car
and another in the day, has not yet been confirmed but
Internet forums are buzzing with the sighting.
Russian reports ruled out it as a UFO but police have
refused to comment.
The UFO reportedly appeared on December 9, the same night
that a mysterious blue spiral light appeared over Norway which
was later attributed to a failed rocket launch from Russia,
The Daily Mail reported.
Though many discarded the footage by saying it might be a
mere reflection from inside the cameraman`s car, others
likened the object to one of the spaceships from Star Wars.
Experts, meanwhile, said if the object, which reportedly
hovered for hours over Red Square in the Russian capital,
really exists, it could be up to a mile wide.
Some commentators reacted sceptically to the videos as
there were no other evidence. Nick Pope, a former Ministry of
Defence UFO analyst, said it was "one of the most
extraordinary UFO clips I`ve ever seen".
"At first I thought this was a reflection but it appears
to move behind a power line, ruling out this theory".
A spokesman for aerospace journal Jane`s News said:
"We have no idea what it is."
