Russian space experts are seeking to solve the mystery of ‘a UFO fragment’ which crashed close to a remote village in Siberia.
The ‘silver U-shaped device’ weighs 200 kilos, has does not appear to be a rocket or a missile – or a remnant of earthly space technology.
‘The object found is not related to space technology. A final conclusion can be made after a detailed study of the object by experts,’ said the Russian space agency Roscosmos.
Locals insist the metallic object – resembling a large shiny rubbish bin – fell from the skies. The object is six feet long and is at least partially made of titanium steel.
It’s now under police guard as interest in the ‘visitor’ intensifies.
It was found near a village called Otradnensky some two thousand miles and three time zones east of Moscow.
The Russian media immediately claimed ‘fragments of a UFO’ were discovered in the remote forest.
