YEREVAN.- A shining object observed in Armenia’s sky on Thursday is hardly a missile, Anatoly Tsyganok, Head of the Russia-based Military Forecasting Center, told Armenian News-NEWS.am. However, it should not be regarded as UFO as well, he believes.
“This strange phenomenon was observed in other South Caucasian states as well as Israel, Spain and others. It is likely to be just a mirage. There is no precise answer yet,” he added.
As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, in Armenia people noticed a strange object in the sky at 09.45 p.m. in various parts of country on Thursday. The strange phenomenon was observed in Yerevan city and in Armavir and Syunik Regions.
Israeli outlets linked the object with the Russian Topol missile launched from Astrakhan. According to witnesses, a cone-like thing appeared in the sky, afterwards there was a flash and a twist, and, subsequently, the light-emanating and ball-shaped object separated into two twisting points and then disappeared.
