| WTF News |

Saturday, video captured an unidentified “celestial body” streaking through the sky in Russia’s northern Murmansk region. The event appears similar to the February 2013 Chelyabinsk meteorite.

The most curious detail is that no distinct explosion can be heard on the video as the object disappears behind a building, out of the camera’s view.
On the Kola Peninsula locals watched the fall of the celestial body , which was similar to Chelyabinsk meteorite .

Flash in the sky was observed residents Murmansk, Severomorsk , Apatity , Kirovsk Koashva . Heavenly body exploded around 2:10 Moscow time. However, no sound of explosions was not heard .

Resident Snezhnogorsk Alexander Nesterov , a video posted on the Internet with a meteor , told LifeNews, that this outbreak recorded video recorder in his car.

- It happened tonight. No loud noises were not, saw a bright flash and everything – he said.

In the regional emergencies department said that the nature of the celestial body is not established yet and no alarm calls from people in the region have been reported.

- No celestial body we have . During the last night of unknown information about any outbreaks in the sky we have received – said the source .

The reports are scant in English-language media. One analysis of it is that the possible meteor burned up in the atmosphere.
Chairman of Murmansk Astronomical Club “Orion” explained Victor Troshenkov television LifeNews, that residents of the Murmansk region could see in the sky is nothing but stellar rain .

- April 21 expected maximum Lyrids meteor shower , and what you saw tonight, one of the brightest meteors , – said Victor Troshenkov . – These meteors burn up in the atmosphere, and they are absolutely not dangerous.

The lack of sound and damage from an object appearing so close has raised questions about the true origin. Zero Hedge posited that the bright flash may have been associated with undisclosed military activity, a possible test or even a hostile exchange between countries.

Zero Hedge

A little over a year ago, in February 2013, a meteor traveling at 19 miles per second above Chelyabinsk in the Russian Urals exploded in the morning sky, recorded by countless dashcams, with the resulting shock wave shattering windows hundreds of miles away. Fast forward to this night, when residents of Russia’s northern Murmansk region witnessed the fall of a celestial body similar to the famous Chelyabinsk meteorite on Saturday night. It flashed at 02:10 am local time and was clearly seen in the sky. However, no sound of explosions was heard.

Officials say that the nature of the celestial body is unknown, however since there were no warnings of any ICBM tests overnight, the meteor theory is the most valid one. Then again, the major Russian base of Severomorsk, and the administrative center of the Russia northern fleet, is located precisely in this area, so one can see why some of the already percolating theories suggest this may have been nothing but a military test.
