Sebuah benda misterius terlihat di langit kota Moskow. Benda yang dikenali sebagai UFO (Unindetified Flying Object) telah memicu spekulasi bahwa kota itu telah dikunjungi oleh pesawat ruang angkasa asing.
Objek yang besar itu berbentuk piramida dan selama berjam-jam terbang di atas Lapangan Merah di ibukota Rusia. Warnanya abu-abu, namun detilnya samar ditangkap kamera video. Setidaknya ada dua video yang terpisah -satu difilmkan selama siang hari dan satunya lagi pada malam hari- kini menjadi sensasi di ranah online.
Belum ada komentar dari pihak polisi atau pejabat berwenang di Rusia. Laporan adanya objek besar di langit berbentuk piramida mencuat hanya beberapa hari setelah peluncuran rudal Rusia.
UFO di Norwegia. Spiral cahaya yang dramatis terlihat di bagian utara negara itu, yang mendorong teori bahwa itu disebabkan oleh meteor, yang sering disebut Bintang Utara.
Namun, Rusia kemudian mengungkapkan bahwa uji coba penembakan rudal antarbenua telah berakhir dengan kegagalan -ketika pada saat yang sama banyak pengamat menyaksikan pertunjukan cahaya spiral di pagi hari.

Giant Pyramid UFO 'Hovers Over Moscow'
A mysterious 'UFO' seen in the sky over Moscow has sparked speculation that the city has been visited by an alien spacecraft.
The pyramid-shaped object was said to have remained for hours over the Red Square in the Russian capital.
The fuzzy grey shape was apparently captured on film in at least two separate videos -one filmed during the daytime and another at night- which became an online sensation.
But sceptics suggested there would be thousands of videos, rather than just two, if the object really had remained in the skies for hours.
Russian police have not commented on the alleged sightings.
The reports of the pyramid come just days after a Russian missile launch set off a spate of UFO sightings in Norway.
The dramatic light spiral seen over the north of the country prompted theories that it was caused by a meteor, the Northern Lights or even aliens.
However, Russia later revealed that its test-firing of a new intercontinental missile had ended in failure - at the same time as observers witnessed the early morning light show.

UFO pyramid reported over Kremlin
A giant pyramid which appears to be a UFO hovering over the Kremlin has caused frenzied speculation in Russia that it is an alien spacecraft.
The object has been compared to an Imperial Cruiser in the Star Wars films and witnesses estimated it could be up to a mile wide.
Two film clips exist which appear to show the same object and footage has been repeatedly playing on Russian television news channels.
The shots, one taken at night from a car and one during the day, were both filmed by amateurs.
The 'craft' was said to have hovered for hours over Red Square in the Russian capital.
The clips of the 'invasion' have gone to the top of the country's version of YouTube.
The identity of the shape has not been confirmed. Russian reports ruled out a UFO but police refused to comment.
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."
