UFO in Siberia

What the …?

Check this story:

Apparently both a plane crew on the ground, and one in the air saw this thing, and were a bit unnerved by it.
Anyone else have any more info?

Since it hung around for 90 minutes I wonder if there are photos?

Pretty freaky. Although, I tend to regard news out of the “Evil Empire” as questionable until proven innocent.

I ran a check against http://www.newsindex.com and AP. The same story, slightly changed, is credited to AFP, a French news agency. AP hasn’t picked it up.

If anyone can read Russian, I’m willing to bet that the message boards over at http://www.ixbtlabs.com are hopping about this. All geeks love UFOs.
