On May 4 (Wednesday), a 'Meridian' satellite on a Soyuz-2-1A/Fregat booster is scheduled for launch from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, pad 43/4, at 17:41:33 UTC.

Since sunset in Moscow is at 21:20 UTC, with clear weather there's a chance observers in Moscow and points east will see the booster plume backlit by the set sun, and report/videotape a new 'UFO'.

It's happened many, many times before, but every time it depends on weather.

So keep an eye on news from Moscow, and if you know anybody there, have them watching the northern and northeast horizon soon after sunset tonight.

Yeah most likely because seems people are quick to say ufo before they really know what it is or isn't.

Also, the daylight may still be too bright, or the northern haze too thick -- maybe nothing at all THIS time...

Yes, of course people will see this and think UFO as in alien spacecraft because...

Not everyone follows what is being launched or landed on any given day, some people just go about life and occasionally they look up and see something unexpected.
A good lot of people believe in life outside Earth and that "they" visit.

It is not stupid to fall into either category, but congratulations in advance to you Jim, you will probably have days and days and forums upon forums to gloat, snicker and get your jollies from.

TV channels show rocket launch from Plesetsk
In its 0900 UTC news on May 5, Russian Defense Ministry-controlled "Zvezda" TV channel showed a report about the May 4 launch of a Soyuz-2 carrier rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome with a military communications satellite, Meridian, on board. Video showed the rocket being prepared for launch, the launch at dusk, and an awards ceremony after it, attended by the Russian Space Troops commander.
The launch was also shown on Russian state news channel "Rossiya 24". A brief video was followed by mobile phone footage from Perm (some 1,500 km east of Plesetsk) sent by a local resident, who at first took the rocket in the sky for a UFO.

Well predicted Jim!

And such familiar photos as well, the only difference between these and the wormhole photos is that the craft in these images is not rotating, Notice how this topic has been almost totally ignored in comparison to the wormhole photos as well? Funny that isn't it?
