Morris Men UFOs – will it start copycat hoaxes?
That's two men from Morris County, not West Country Morris dancers! But anyway, it's all…
This could be just a false alarm, see Update on Siberian UFO Crash.
Reports of an Unidentified Flying Object crashing in the Krasnoyarsk Region of Siberia have surfaced on Russian news website MosNews.
Nothing has been confirmed, but officials (Police investigators and representatives from the Transport Prosecutors Service) are on route to investigate the crash site.
They will also speak to locals who it is thought witnessed the crash and clam that what ever it was also started a massive forest fire.
The UFO could have be just a meteorite, but interestingly, a quick Google for the words Krasnoyarsk and UFO reveals some interesting results.
Does anybody have any stories of UFO activity in this region of Russia/Siberia?
