Some of the theories regarding the object’s nature on social media include a meteorite, UFO, and satellite reentry.
A strange flying object was captured on video in the sky above Russia’s Amur Oblast by baffled locals.
The footage was apparently recorded on 1 July and shows some sort of glowing object slowly moving across the sky.
“My friends and I saw the movement of some object in the sky, it looked like a comet, but it flew slowly and we realised that it was some kind of rocket or flying machine, a little later it exploded and a pattern in the form of jellyfish was formed, we even heard some kind of sound similar on blast,” the description of the video posted on YouTube by “Viral Hog” says.
While some social media users commenting on the video appeared as perplexed by the spectacle as the people who recorded the footage, others were quick to note that the flying object was acting like a rocket exiting Earth’s atmosphere.
One netizen likened it to a specific launch of a Soyuz 2.1b carrier rocket from Vostochny Cosmodrome on 1 July that was hauling a payload of OneWeb satellites.
There were also those, however, who suggested that the flying object may have been a “satellite re-entry with lithium burning off towards the end,” an ice meteorite, or even a UFO.
SpaceX’s Inspiration4 Crew Shares Photos of Earth from Space – Beebom
If you are a space enthusiast like myself, I’m sure you love the mesmerizing views of the Earth from space shared by astronauts. Having said that, chances are you will love the breathtaking pictures recently shared by the astronauts in SpaceX’s Inspiration4 spacecraft, which took off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on September 15. It safely returned to Earth today.
The seven-seater SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft was recently launched from the Kennedy space center. Following the launch, astronauts from the Inspiration4 spacecraft shared four orbital photos of the Earth. You can check out the tweet right below.
The photos were taken from the cupola of the spacecraft, which is a dome-shaped, transparent viewing area that allows astronauts to get a unique glimpse of our planet from space. Not just that, SpaceX Inspiration4’s astronauts also shared a short video showing the sunset. You can check it out right here:
The astronauts include the Shift4 Payments CEO and founder Jared Isaacman, who financed the space mission and is currently the acting commander of the spacecraft, Air Force veteran Christopher Sembroski, physician assistant Hayley Arceneaux, and geoscientist Dr. Sian Proctor.
Now, it is worth mentioning that SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft can carry seven people onboard. However, the Inspiration4 mission only includes four astronauts aboard the spacecraft. As per reports, following the launch, the Inspiration4 spacecraft has now completed 15 orbits around Earth and is expected to complete a full orbit of the Earth every 90 minutes. If you want to monitor the progress of the flight, you can go to SpaceX’s official tracking website.

World's first space tourists splash down in their SpaceX capsule after three days in orbit – Yahoo Eurosport UK
Four space tourists safely splashed down in the Atlantic off the coast of Florida on Saturday, ending their trailblazing trip into orbit.
Their SpaceX capsule parachuted into the ocean just before sunset, not far from where their chartered flight began three days earlier.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk took them on as the company’s first rocket-riding tourists.
The fully automated Dragon capsule reached an unusually high altitude of miles 585km after Wednesday night’s liftoff, that’s 160km above the International Space Station.
The passengers were able to take in views of Earth through a big bubble-shaped window added to the top of the capsule.
