On Saturday the
football team achieved a magnificent victory in the 2018 World Cup, beating Sweden
2-0 and advancing to the semi-finals of the tournament. This took place in
Samara, a fine city in the steppes of southern Russia.
It is a city with an extreme climate; boiling hot in summer, freezing cold in
winter. It also played an important role in the pioneers of space exploration
and was formerly a closed city. However its connection with outer space took an
ironic twist the Thursday before the big match. Eighty miles away from Samara,
just after on the 5th of July,
there was an aerial explosion that lit up the night sky above the villages of
Bostandyk and Karasu in western Kazakhstan.
Amateur witness footage shows a brightly-lit object descend in a straight line
and hit the ground in a second burst of light. The impact caused a huge grass
fire that took four hours to bring under control. Many nearby residents flocked
to the scene and saw an object that they describe as spherical and about ten
feet in diameter. Some say a second smaller artefact landed close by. The main
object was partly buried in the ground and there are some photographs that are
purported to be of it. They show a metallic surface, although one witness
claimed that it felt non-metallic and soft like fabric. It is black in colour,
possibly due to scorching from entering the earth's atmosphere at high speed.
There is what looks like a hatch, similar to those on the Soyuz capsules that provide
transport to and from the International Space Station; it is circular, has no
hinges and is secured around the circumference by nuts and bolts. However this
hatch is only about ten inches across; too small to admit an astronaut. In the
middle of the hatch is what looks like a pipe protruding; it splits off towards
both sides and ends in a screw and nut connecter. Source: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/ufo-crash-lands-80-miles-12870757.
Based on the evidence so far presented, this is definitely a man-made
spacecraft from earth. It is probably some kind of satellite. The fabric-like
texture a witness describes could be the ablative heat shield that was partly
burned off. The incident happened quite close to the Baikonur Space Centre, the world's biggest space launch and recovery facility. However, no space agency has reported losing any rockets. The
authorities in Kazakhstan
and Russia have
not commented which leads me to wonder if this crash involves some kind of
classified mission; perhaps it is a spy satellite.
