Excavators working in Siberia, Russia discovered a disc-shaped object buried forty metres underground. Some sky watchers believe it fell from outer space. An intriguing image has made rounds online showing a man holding what thought to be a UFO that fell to Earth from space thousands of years ago – stayed deeply on the ground.
Excavators think the so-called craft is a man-made object, but still subject to further examination by archaeologists. Meanwhile, some UFO enthusiasts do believe it fell from the space.
Siberia Flying SaucerNearly a perfect circle, the bizarre object measures 1.2 metres in diameter and weighs 440lbs – equivalent to roughly 31 stones.
Forty-year-old excavator Boris Glazkov, who discovered the object, said he immediately saw the object because it was large and distinctive.
He said he had never encountered similar to it before in the middle of nowhere and added that it is a real mystery.
Thirty-eight-year-old Arthur Presnyakov, Glazkov’s colleague, said that they found two identical objects, but the other one broke when it was pulled out from the ground through the excavator bucket.
Presnyakov revealed that they were not careful when they pulled out the first one, the reason it broke. So, when they spotted the second similar object, they were more careful pulling it up with the excavator bucket.
The official owner of the object, Kuzbassrazrezugol mining company, said the object was unearthed at a depth of approximately 40 metres.
Given that deep, the object is estimated to be older than mammoth bones, which have been found in the same area at a depth of 25 metres. Scientists declined to comment on the matter while the investigation is still ongoing.
