2009: UFO above the Kremlin...
Admittedly, Tunguska is 2500 miles from Moscow, but the dates do make me wonder if there's a connection. Perhaps centennial visits, which in 1908 went horribly wrong in some way

Unidentified Flying Objects UFOs - have been sighted over the territory we know today as Russia since the days of antiquity. For centuries people have seen objects in the sky that they could not identify, and many of them have recorded sightings, which could not be explained away as meteors, planets, stars, or weather balloons.
Some of the most interesting information concerning UFO sightings is still locked away in the secret archives of the state. Occasionally, the guarded vaults do open up, either by the passing of history or chance, and information leaks out. Recently declassified documents of the Russian Ministry of the Interior, dating back to the beginning of the 19th century, reveal some interesting UFO sightings from the Russian Empire
880 ST. PETERSBURG UFO
A giant bright, spherical object flew over St. Petersburg on July 30, 1880. The UFO was accompanied by two identical craft, only smaller in size. The flight of the UFOs was noiseless, and they were observed over the city for three minutes.
I have to marvel at the Russian script. So very neat and straight. They don't write like that anymore.
I was thinking that, I mean, all of these ufo sketches from back in the 1800s are all blurry, and over a massive city like that, 200 odd years ago, you'd have thought that at least one decent sketch would arrise. I mean, they had nothing better to do back then, so everyone was an artist. It's probably an elongated exposure do to the sketcher seeing the planet venus crossing the sky as he drew it..........
