A mysterious ball of light hovering eerily in the night sky has left stargazers baffled.
As a stargazer films the bizarre ‘UFO’ her dog can be heard going crazy in the background.
He furiously barks at the object as if he’s trying to protect his owner.
The film of the lattice-like sphere of light was taken in the city of Ryazan in western Russia’s Ryazan Oblast.
At first the shot shows some windows in a town, with a tiny light in the sky overhead.
Then the camera operator, obviously using high-end equipment, zooms in on the light to reveal it is a luminous ball with microstructures visible within.
As something seems to be moving on the surface of the unidentified object, the stargazer is heard saying: “And there is also a strip moving on it, a grey one.
“Look at it.”
But despite the video being shared widely across the internet no one seems to be able to shed any light on what the object is.
Some people believe is may be ball lightning, which is an atmospheric phenomenon that produces luminous spheres.
However, they are much smaller than the one in the video, ranging from pea size to a few metres in diameter, and only last a few seconds before disappearing or exploding.
