The glossy green fireball, buzzing over the high-tech "scientific city" in Siberia in Siberia, has caused Vladimir Putin's claims for the development of space weapons.
A bright flash and a striped tail were noticed by stunned motorists close to the research city Akademgorodok near Novosibirsk, Russia.
Research institutes in this area are called Vladimir Putin’s “secret weapon” in the global high-tech arms race.
Just six miles away is Koltsovo, where the secret vector institute is located – the repository of the most deadly diseases and viruses of the planet, including smallpox, Ebola and Marburg.
In the early morning darkness images were caught on the dash.
Some observers claimed that it was an “alien attack” or a meteor exploding in the sky.
Other proposals were Russian tests of "extremely advanced weapons" or "UFOs that are ready to invade Ukraine."
The state-run Russian media admitted that astronomers were “somewhat puzzled” by sight.
Ilya Orlov, deputy director of the Bolshoi Novosibirsk Planetarium, called it a “beautiful phenomenon,” but could not be sure what caused it.
He said: "Most likely, this is a flash of the car, that is, the fall of a bright meteor with a flash."
If so, this is unusual, he said.
He said: “This is all the more surprising that now there are no active meteor showers.
“It can be either the tail of a meteor shower, or a lone meteor.
"We need to find out."
It was reported that no traces of cosmic rock were found on the snowy ground.
It was also reported about the explosion.
It is not considered that at the moment when it appeared on Tuesday, missile launches or missile tests were launched.
Akademgorodok was established by the Kremlin in 1957 as a base for Soviet greenhouse scientists in Siberia – far from the curious views of the West.
Currently, it is home to many leading Russian researchers and scientists specializing in all fields of science, including the military and space fields.

In recent years, Vector has been involved in efforts to find drugs and antidotes for killers, such as bubonic plague, anthrax, hepatitis B, HIV and cancer.
The research center has one of two sources of smallpox in the world — the other is in the United States — by international agreement.
This is not the first time that concerns about Russian secret weapons programs have been raised, and some argue that he is developing robotic tanks and a new generation of invisible bombers to go west.
