Southern Russia experienced a mysterious white flash in the sky that so far nobody has been able to explain. On Tuesday evening near the city of Stavropol, a massive flash, which made no noise, was caught on a motorist’s dashboard camera.
So far, more than 250,000 people have seen the video on Youtube, many of them UFO enthusiasts with theories ranging from plausible to downright whacky.
Comments ranged from the Kremlin emitting an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), God sending us a message for misbehaving, a lightning flash, some military exercise, the apocalypse, to aliens whizzing through the sky.
The flash lit up the sky but made no noise.
The silent flash appeared at 00:39 local time on Tuesday (21:39 GMT on Monday).
According to Russia Today, locals said some street lights went dim while others flickered following the phenomenon. It cannot be called a UFO (unidentified flying object) because no “object” was seen, just a massive flash.
There were some reports of lights inside people’s homes dimming and flickering too.
Russia Today quoted one resident who said:
“It was very frightened. I was already in bed. It looked as if something very bright lit up my ceiling.”
Local authorities said it was not linked to any problems with the city’s power supply, while meteorologists ruled out a weather event.

Super-fast UFO seen over Silicon Valley
A flying drone filmed an ultra-fast UFO whizzing over Silicon Valley last week. It was going at an unbelievable speed.
The DJI Inspire 1 drone just managed to capture footage of the UFO on its 4k video camera.
At normal speed it is virtually impossible to detect. Even in slow motion you will miss the white streak if you are not vigilant enough.
The person who placed the video online commented on a forum set up by the maker of the camera drone:
“I have no idea what this is, maybe a bug, hummingbird, reflection or alien space craft! The only thing I know for sure is that I did nothing that would cause this. You can analyze it better if you download the video in 4K and go frame by frame. Any other ideas of what it might be?”
