'What happens in Sibera stays in Siberia...unless it is covered by The Siberian Times'

So did a UFO shoot down the famous Chelyabinsk meteorite last month?

Early speculation suggested the incoming object had been shot at by a Russian missile, but no such claim has been made by the authorities. Picture: The Siberian Times 

The theory comes from Russian watchers of unidentified flying objects and echoes a version that first appeared on the day the space rock fell on Chelyabinsk region. Early speculation suggested the meteorite had been shot at by a Russian missile, but no such claim has been made by the authorities. 

Indeed, the Russian government is seeking to lead world efforts to secure the technology to blast such objects before they cause damage on the ground.

Now attention has switched to whether - as a raging online debate suggests - 'we were saved by a UFO' exploding the menacing meteorite seconds before it struck the ground.

'At first, we also believed that the Chelyabinsk meteorite was just an ordinary meteorite, a cosmic body', said Alexander Komanev, coordinator for the Russian UFO community in Yekaterinburg. 'But facts began to emerge. In the internet began to appear videos, at least three of which were similar, on which you can see how an object catches the meteorite.'

This tiny object then 'flies through it - and the meteorite explodes and falls.

The meteorite that crashed to Earth in the Urals was attacked by a UFO causing it to explode and shatter, it was claimed on Thursday. Pictures: The Siberian Times 

'Such a number of videos, made from different angles makes us believe that something blew up the meteorite...' - Komanev stressed. 

To the untrained eye, it is hard to tell what was happening here, but Komanev suggests that prior to the the meteorite's fall there was an upsurge in UFO sightings.

His 'second supporting argument' is that 'since 2012 we have registered an increase of UFO activity. We began to receive more testimonies of eyewitnesses.'

He explained: 'Usually we get two messages about UFO per month. Since the beginning of February we received four messages.'

He claimed that 'we have two videos on which we can clearly see a UFO' shortly before the meteorite.

Komanev showed  two videos at a press conference in Yekaterinburg. One of videos was made in Chabry village, Sverdlovsk region. The claim is it shows

 two 'glowing bowls'  seen flying in the sky at night. They are visible, disappear and appear again, it is claimed.

On the second from Chelyabinsk, filmed at 10 am, 'glowing bowls' are shown slowly moving in the sky, they appear and then are lost again.

After the meteorite fall, he claimed he and his colleagues did not receive any messages about cases of UFO in the region.

'No activity at all,' he said. 

Meanwhile, divers in Lake Chebarkul have found craters in the three-metre thick silt where several pieces of the meteorite are believed to have sunk.

Lubov Rudometova, press secretary of Chebarkul administration, said: 'We have a special team of people who are searching for the meteorite's fragments.'

A magnetic examination of the lake's floor is also being conducted.

What is it ..? I'm not sure, could it possibly be an alien battle..? Taking out the damaged enemy craft completely so that it can't be identified..? It it was a meteorite taken out by an alien, I thank you Zork.

Folks, use your eyes; you can see a heat signature from the "bolide", you can even see high pressure waves coming of the front of the "bolide"! You also see a UFO, catch up to and possibly "HIT INTO" OR "FIRE SOMETHING" at the "bolide", difficult to tell from right side angle! IT (UFO) then continues past at much higher speed than the "bolide" and gradually disappeared! THE UFO is traveling FASTER than 41,000 MPH and leaving NO (0) signature, AS USUAL FOR UFO's! IF it were a Russian rocket, the rocket would be showing a HEAT signature! IF it were a projectile, IT would begin falling back to Earth, and showing an ARC, gravity!
WHATEVER it was appears to fly UP and away, at increasing speed!

Come on people I suppose all you people that don’t believe aliens have been visiting earth for tens of thousands of years. Also believe that a weather balloon crash in Roswell, New Mexico July 1947 people get your head out of the sand look around do you also believes it 20,000 or more years ago humans were able to quarry and cut 200,000 pound stones into a perfect square and then move them 100 miles. The evidence is all over.

No one can intercept a meteor that was an attack on Russia. The following year Russia invaded Ukraine. Now there's a big war getting ready to start.

That was an attack on Russia.

What if it was a Super? Someone like Iron Man, Hulk, Superman? You have to say we've seen alot of the same from our favorite heroes. Seems like something they wud do! Alot of people were injured but it could have been way worse from what I've read and seen. It's sound ridiculous right? Maybe all these movies by MCU and DC are easing us in to the truth. There are aliens among us! And they might be Super!

It was, imho a UFO - whether man made of E.T. There were two clips from different angled CLEARLY depicting the craft. That have since been scoured from the internet. I edited and studied the footage for days. They made me a believer. One depicted the craft appear in the sky out of nowhere, perform a 3-point manoeuvre and fly straight into the meteor just as it exploded. Another depicted the same manoeuvre, but also clearly showed the craft exit the other side of the meteor and vanish. I cannot for the life of me find either of those angles anymore. The footage was posted on numerous major news outlets. Whose articles now link simply to a deleted YouTube account

IQ has drastically reduced in humans in the past decade. From what I've read on this page - its obviously true!

For you people saying it was a warhead, and that it intercepted, your'e wrong, it came from behind, which is not an interception, it went right through, which is not a warhead, it would have exploded, and you cant tell me the warhead was made out of some strong metal, because any metal we currently have on this planet would have either vaporized or disintegrated on contact with that meteor, and the most obvious, not one thing on this planet that is man made can travel at the speed or faster than 33000 miles per second, which the meteorite did, there case closed UFO interference out of this planet.

Meteors don't explode. Bolides explode and ABM's explode. UPDATE: Russian Nuclear Anti-Ballistic Missile Splits The Chelyabinsk Meteor And there most certainly was an early report of a missile launch.

The frame by frame analysis gives an insight. Thanks. 'Reflections' that coincide exactly with the 'reflection' passing through the meteor and the 'explosion'. Even a 'residual DU armored' missile, in my mastering of crude basic Physics, should have 'vaporized' at the time of the nuclear explosion. Apparently, my crude assumptions were off by seconds.

An alien group has already acknowledged that they did shot at the meteor to break it apart. What this same group also revealed is that they also altered the meteor's orbit so that it entered into our atmosphere instead of just passing by. They did not reveal why they did this. This is NOT a joke. I first got this info BEFORE I even know that this video exist!

If you watch closely you will notice that the "strange body" "flies" together with the black dots on the windshield. The car is moving on a curve causing the "dirt spots" on the windshield to appear moving. You can check this yourself - find a video that is not post-processed and put your mouse at the approximate position where the "strange body" will appear - you will see that the "strange body" will not move relative to the mouse (camera frame)... It seems this is a small defect on the windshield that reflects the light from the meteorite. These defects are not uncommon for windshields. Sorry UFO fans...

Previous Johnjohn comment:
"That would be so dumb, why would any extra terrestrial entity wait until the rock is in the atmosphere? It still caused ample damage. It would have far easier for extra terrestrials to shoot it down long before it would hit the atmosphere. Anything else would be idiotic to even contemplate."

Bitch Answer: True, it would be easier for our extraterrestrial brothers to take it out in space, yet if they did how would we know that a pebble had been shot at us?

Is the Druid refusing to see what it is? Have we not been taken off right?
