Note that I am somehow unable to post in the breaking news section (It gives me an error about non-compatible / non-working compression), so I posted it here instead.

Quote from the article (small part omitted to reduce size)


“It was at about 3AM. I was standing by my tractor when the guys started shouting: ‘Look, there are some balls flying.’ They were big and sparkling with yellow, red and green,” an eyewitness told Interfax news agency over the phone.

According to the witnesses, the balls are approximately 60 cm in diameter, have a slivery surface and a small opening. They failed to bend or dent the balls with their tools and said the balls produced sparks when they attempted to do so.

There is no official confirmation of the report yet, but local emergencies officials are due to perform an on-site investigation.

Based on all those other articles I've seen, people tend to purely post the article first, and then their ideas on it.
I don't know if this is due to some hidden rule I haven't found yet, or simple points / post-hoarding
But i'll just follow suit.


So RussiaToday, if I recall correctly they were sponsored by the Kremlin, but is this reason to remove any credibility from them as a news source for UFO-related stuff? Is this for real or a silly prank made by some people in Kazakhstan? Apparently there have been other sightings there, and there's supposedly some kind of UFO base around?

Personally I think this is just another ''Holy crap'' stories that will soon turn to ''holy crud''. But hey, you never know when the first real story appears that will finally satisfy all those non-believers right?

What do you think?

Honestly no.
The UFO related stuff really isn't about propaganda for the Kremlin.
Most Russians including there Gov seem to believe in and talk openly about UFO's, really they don't seem to care to much about it.
The problem in Russia is the faking of UFO's not for dis info but for promotion and attention and website hits.
And some are very talented at their picture/video editing skills.
But you would have to wonder if Borat from Kazakhstan just wants to get on the Russian news.

Maybe the aliens were trying to get to the new UFO base eh?

Russian officials are not afraid to talk publicly on the subject of UFOs. I recall a crop circle incident in Russia, during the late 90s, and an official said he "cannot rule out alien involvement."

This comment was carried on Skynews (1998, I believe)

Remember, the KGB had an extensive and very intense paranormal program - including research into Ancient Egypt and UFOs. Yes, the Russians are invidious to some but even their space agency is not hostile to the idea of declaring a -public- interest into UFOs.

I can access Russia Today on my British digital system, and on the hour, I will watch the news report and give an update.

Two UFO on Kazakhstan May 14, 2009 15:22
Astana - APA. The inhabitants of the Zelenograd area (Southern) observed the UFO with the landing, brought back APA.



“At about 3 children said strange objects were flying. They were very big flamy objects, had yellow, red and green sparkles,” he said.
The local residents said the UFOs fell on the area ploughed by the farmers.
“At first we were afraid to approach, then the objects got cold and we touched them. We could not determine the material of the objects. We tried to break it, but could not. It sparkled when we struck,” he said.
Vladimir Dyadkov said the diameter of the silver object was 60 cm, there was a small outgrowth on one side of the object. Officials have not commented on the fact yet. A special group has been sent to the region to investigate the objects.

I honestly do not know what to make of this.

Russia Today might be Kremlin operated, but the presenters do not produce utter nonsense or facetious content. In other words, in order to broadcast in the UK, they cannot deliberately present false information.

Has there been an increase in UFO sightings in Kazakhstan since this annoucement?

Beats me, but considering it fell on farmer's land.

I've been to a farmer once, he lived the way he wanted to, which was without a lot of luxury (he owned a fire-truck, church, hotel and some other things though. In other words, he was rich. Yet he walked around in farmer's clothing and lived in a little house with no doors lol)

So my guess is that they didn't have a camera at all, either that, or the time tested excuse ''I didn't think of it atm''.

People always have a feeling that something big is going to happen, just to be disappointed in the end.

Though if these claims are valid.. sparking balls that fall down from the skies? Now there's a new one

Good to know they used the correct protocols for dealing with an 'alien object'.

That'll show the varmints - they won't try and come back for at least another generation.

I bet they wanted to know what the hidden surprise was, small alien figurines?

Did they have 'Kinder' stamped on the bottom?

Now I'm jealous - I want one too.

I personally think it was swamp gas that had risen so high into the atmosphere that it had condensed, froze and then fell to earth. The reason they sparked when struck was because swamp gas is mostly methane which is explosive.
These farmers are lucky they did not explode causing injury. They will be glad to note that the balls of swamp gas will be confiscated for their safety so that the government can dispose of them safely in the appropriate manner.

Well, as far as we know, we should be grateful no EBE's were on board. If the locals tried opening up the "balls" with tools - heaven forbid how potentially horrific first contact could've been.

The story is being reported in over fifty news outlets.


All News Web

Ukraine is covering this story too.
Also, this just caught my eye - occurred in March this year.



The residents of the Ukrainian town of Senelnikovo in the Dnepropetrovsk region had been seeing strange objects in the sky for weeks and were at a loss as to explain what they were. Many were suspecting that they were UFOs controlled by aliens. Talk of a UFO landing base near the Black Sea had been going on for decades.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Does swamp gas become silvery when it's condensed / frozen though?
Plus they had 1 hole if I read correctly, now my thoughts would be it would become a perfectly spherical object if it was condensed swamp gas.

That's the thing about swamp gas. It is one of the most unusual substances known to man. In the fifties and sixties, the US government funded classified research into swamp gas. In fact there are rumours that DARPA created aircraft that were often mistaken for swamp gas (perhaps a cloaking device?).
Swamp gas does indeed become silvery or metallic looking when frozen under low pressure low temperature environments and this also explains why farmers thought the object were hot .. when they landed they melted a little giving off a smoke like vapour ... similiar to what is found in the vapour given off by electronic cigarettes.
