Strange Craft Flying Over Russia

Submitted by on June 26, 2012 – 12:26 PM15 Comments | 1,662 views

Here’s a video that shows a strange craft breaking through the ominous dark clouds above some Russian city. My initial thought is that this aircraft is less alien-like and more of an experimental military or weather drone. Especially when you have an aircraft that has systematically blinking lights (aviation lights).

At first glance this looks like some flat-shaped alien aircraft with a revolving light around its perimeter. However, after watching the video over again, I can make out the silhouette of a helicopter against the soft glow of the clouds. Since the quality of the video is horrendous, I can only assume this. For all I know this could be the lights of a military bomber.

Any sharp-eyed readers out there that can identify this strange craft?

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

    It looks like a chopper to me.

  • CoreyFong

    I agree. Has to be a chopper. Flight pattern isn’t unusual and the aviation lights. And if it isn’t a chopper it has to be some type on conventional aircraft. If the object’s flight pattern was a bit more unusual, I probably would be scratching my head.

    Why do people post unfocused and pour video quality videos on YouTube and then label them as UFOs??

    UnFocused-Objects ūüėČ

    Even the My First Sony kids cam makes better pictures then this! Makes me wonder why. Hmm, could it maybe be because otherwise we can see what it really is? (not alien).
    In my opinion it is a bunch of #$%&^#.

  • Rmon

    Because on youtube most ufo posters just want you to visit, so they can make a buck. They are all morons.

  • Bitter

    Any present UFO that comes out of the Motherland is simply Putin having a giggle… or a helicopter, if you’d like.

    “Comrades, we have a bogey.”

    In all seriousness, if aliens want to fly around in plain view then Russia is the perfect place to do it. All the vodka-addled brains wouldn’t be able to comprehend what they’re seeing anyway.

    I just caution the aliens: do not land. Some Russian punk will sucker-punch you.

    i dunno man it sort of looks like a chopper for a couple of seconds but it seems like its changing shape or something….? Its definitely weird looking whatever it is..

  • The Oshmar

    0:45 definitely looks like a chopper

  • cormans

    This is an Alien Spacecraft of some sort!! I think they can transform their spaceships at will into any kind of shape that they want! Hence the different looking shapes and lights!  Yours, Kevin.

  • Henry

     What is your evidence of that?

  • cormans

    Just look at the object!! Then you tell me what it is!! O.K.??

     What I see is a terrestrial aircraft. That was not the question.
    What evidence supports the idea that aliens are:
    A: Here
    B: Flying around in shape shifting aircraft?

  • Jon

    A: multiple eye witnesses including first hand accounts of alien abductions. 

    This video however, i’m not too sure still. Could well be a helicopter with some weird effects inherent in the video camera itself due to the distance/atmospheric conditions.

    ¬†Anecdotal evidence at best. People’s perceptions are far too polluted by media and entertainment to be given much credibility. That so many accounts happen along the lines of movie plots and previous reported accounts leads any serious investigation to the conclusion that they are merely attention seekers re-purposing stories they have heard in the press.
