But for who?
For the UFO sighting seen by many recently.
As the 2018 Russia World Cup kicked off—filled with anger, celebration, and sorrow—many were surprised as to not come upon a UFO flying across the sky. But then time passed by, and something came along…
A woman from Kirov, West Russia, shared a video of what seems like a spectacle flying across the sky, over Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, the field where England will be playing against Panama on 24 June.
The woman posted alongside the footage she had just taken, saying, “What the hell was that? It doesn’t look like anything I’ve previously seen.”
Shortly after, the post went viral, particularly with Russians, with people commenting: “Is that a rocket, a fireball or a UFO over Nizhny Novgorod? Talk to me comrades, I’m worried!”
Another commented, saying: “The aliens have arrived for the World Cup.”
And who can blame them? The World Cup has been a highly-anticipated event since before the opening ceremony. People from around the world were waiting to watch and see if the team from their birth country would beat other opposing teams, and perhaps even win the actual World Cup.
As time progressed, and the spectacle flew along the sky, wandering, it transformed into the shape of a “jellyfish,” according to another resident of Kirov.
However, when there’s UFO sightings, there’s also Sceptics. And apparently, standing by the Sceptics, the Russian Space Officials are the first runner ups to debunk the sighting.
…And apparently it had supposedly been a light show, which coincided with the launch of a Soyuz-2.1.B, from Plesetsk cosmodrome in Russia’s sub-Arctic Arkhangelsk region. The rocket was fired with a Glonass-M satellite, apparently at 12:46 AM, Moscow time, on Sunday, 17 June. The supposed satellite was safely delivered into orbit by a Fregat upper stage rocket, according to military officials.
