Mystery triangle seen over Kremlin sparks UFO rumours

HOVERING ominously over the city, this video of what appears to be a triangle-shaped UFO has left Russians baffled.

Sitting motionless in the sky above the Kremlin in Moscow, clips of the unexplained object have become the most-viewed videos on Russia's YouTube.

The two videos, one taken at night from a car and one during the day, were both filmed by amateurs.

The UFO hovered for several hours over Red Square in the Russian capital and was seen by hundreds of people.

The identity of the shape has not been confirmed but internet forums are buzzing with details about the sighting.

The UFO appeared on December 9, the same night a mysterious blue spiral light appeared over Norway.

That was later attributed to a failed rocket launch from Russia.

Some have likened the object to one of the spaceships from the feature film Star Wars.

But others have said it is merely a reflection from inside the cameraman's car.

If the object exists, experts estimate that it could be up to 1.6km wide.

Some commentators have reacted sceptically to the videos and have pointed out that if hundreds of people had seen the object more videos and photos would have emerged by now.

Russian reports ruled out a UFO but police have refused to comment.

Nick Pope, a former analyst with the British Ministry of Defence UFO, said it was "one of the most extraordinary UFO clips I've ever seen".

"At first I thought this was a reflection but it appears to move behind a powerline, ruling out this theory."

A spokesman for aerospace journal Jane's News said: "We have no idea what it is."
