Object resembling UFO discovered in Russia during excavation

19 February 2015, 10:51

Excavators in Russia have dug up a bizarre object that strongly resembles a UFO. The object was discovered by a coal mining company in Siberia's Kuznetsk Basin, during excavation work, reports Mirror.

Adding to the mystery of how an object like that was found buried 40 metres under the ground, archaeologists called in to examine it, believe it's a man-made object. Excavator Boris Glazkov, 40, who found the object, said: "I have to say it wasn't hard to see as it was really distinctive and large. I've never seen anything like this object, which is obviously man-made, here in the middle of nowhere before. It is a real mystery."

His colleague, Arthur Presnyakov, 38, said: "There were actually two similar objects, but the first one broke as it was being pulled out of the ground by the excavator bucket. We thought we saw something sure, because it broke into pieces, but then when the second one appeared we stopped work and carefully removed it from the bucket."

However, as per the Mirror report, UFO enthusiasts and sky watchers are convinced it fell from space. "Given that it was embedded so deep underground, it could be older than mammoth bones, which have been discovered in the area at a depth of 25 metres," state the website. The unusual object is almost perfectly circular, with a diameter of around 1.2 metres and weighs roughly 440lbs. Scientists declined to comment further as investigations were ongoing.
