Meteorite crashes near Lake Baikal, Russia


Residents of eastern Siberia, Russia reported seeing a flash of green light falling on Earth around Lake Baikal at 11:45 UTC on October 25, 2016.

The observed green light in the Irkutsk Region and the Buryatia Republic closely resembled the famous Chelyabinsk meteor, that fell to the ground in 2013. 

The newly observed phenomenon quickly became a topic of various speculations, as some believe it might have been a meteor, piece of space junk or even a rocket while others suggested the arrival of aliens to our planet.

Some suggest the object might have been an RS-18 ballistic missile which was launched around midday on October 25 (local time) near Yasny town in Orenburg Region, southern Urals, and reached the Kura test range in Kamchatka. Residents reported observing similar flashes in the Urals and Lipetsk Region, western Russia.

According to Pavel Nikiforov, a director of the Irkutsk Observatory, no space body was observed on the date: “It is difficult to say if it was a meteorite or an artificial body… No monitoring website showed that a celestial body fell to the ground,” he said.

According to an article published in Pravda today, eyewitnesses said meteorite fell on the ground in the area of Lake Baikal. "It was as bright as daylight for five or six seconds," eyewitnesses wrote adding that the meteorite fell behind the Barguzin ridge.

The incident could be observed from the city of Ulan-Ude and its suburbs, Baikal-Daily publication said.

  1. Watcher, this is not a man made object. Metal is a good conductor. Therefore, it cannot cause such great brightness, i.e. a white hot color. The same applies to the object observed 4 months ago. It was not a Maoist-made shit.

    When ONE is not prepared, things will get stranger and stranger. There are more and more “coincidences” that make ONE say, oh my goodness. When one is prepared, things will get more and more revealing, that make ONE say, oh my GOD!

    On this past Sunday, 10/23, two NFL teams ended up in a rare 6 and 6 tie. They were stunned. Before the final field goal. I couldn’t help but said, oh my GOD! 23 6 6. Minutes later, the usually reliable kicker was completely frozen and the ball was off by a mile for less than 30 yards.

    1182016 Election Day is a monumentally important day for the mankind. I can see there are at least four 8s in it. 8 8 8 8. That day is also a test from HIM for humans . A test of human fraud against human intelligence. Fraud based on human intelligence can only be defeated by the same cause. A few good samples should render an entire population invalid.

    Gradually unveiling means the NFL team should focus on how to get the gradual gains in the 1st and 2nd downs to avoid the 3rd and long. The dinks and dunks of the West Coast Offense have their usefulness. A quick receiver can have a greater leverage to catch a quick slant with his body to shield the defender at an about-36-to-48 degree angel. The key is a quick release by the QB, who cannot hold the ball long enough for the offense to break down in protection. The ONE has being doing the quick slants to the Earth for a while. It is called sequence, which causes fluidity. He is by far the most fluid ONE-man offense I have ever seen. He has never missed a single down. When he gets to the 1st and Goal,the field becomes very condensed, a slant is no longer effective. He simply uses the momentum generated from the previous yards to reach the climax.
