- MOSCOW (ANSA) - Russian Civil
Defense authorities sent a helicopter to the Russian Siberian region of
Kemerovo, whose inhabitants claimed having seen an unidentified flying
object which gave the impression of having "landed".
- Regional authorities quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency
explained that in early hours of December 26th, residents of the city of
Gurievsk followed the maneuvers of a UFO for over half an hour. The object,
which had the appearance of a fireball, eventually fell to earth.
- According to eyewitness accounts, no explosions were
heard, nor were any reports of fires or toppled trees received, as seems
to occur whenever a meteorite is involved. (ANSA).
