A MYSTERIOUS “jellyfish-shaped object” which suddenly appeared in the Earth’s atmosphere has stunned local Russians.
In the footage, published on YouTube by Viral Hog, the comet-like object can be seen hurtling towards the Earth as stunned onlookers revel in its beauty.
A young boy, accompanied by his friends, can be heard calling out in his native Russian as he points towards the starry sky.
He then zooms in to get a closer look at the glowing object – which is spearheaded by a shiny point.
In the video’s caption, the user explains: “My friends and I saw the movement of some object in the sky, it looked like a comet, but it flew slowly and we realized that it was some kind of rocket or flying machine.
“A little later it exploded and a pattern in the form of jellyfish was formed, we even heard some kind of sound similar on blast.”
