So did a UFO shoot down the famous Chelyabinsk meteorite last month?

By The Siberian Times reporter
28 February 2013

The meteorite that crashed to Earth in the Urals was attacked by a UFO causing it to explode and shatter, it was claimed on Thursday.

Early speculation suggested the incoming object had been shot at by a Russian missile, but no such claim has been made by the authorities. Picture: The Siberian Times 

The theory comes from Russian watchers of unidentified flying objects and echoes a version that first appeared on the day the space rock fell on Chelyabinsk region. Early speculation suggested the meteorite had been shot at by a Russian missile, but no such claim has been made by the authorities. 

Indeed, the Russian government is seeking to lead world efforts to secure the technology to blast such objects before they cause damage on the ground.

Now attention has switched to whether - as a raging online debate suggests - 'we were saved by a UFO' exploding the menacing meteorite seconds before it struck the ground.

'At first, we also believed that the Chelyabinsk meteorite was just an ordinary meteorite, a cosmic body', said Alexander Komanev, coordinator for the Russian UFO community in Yekaterinburg. 'But facts began to emerge. In the internet began to appear videos, at least three of which were similar, on which you can see how an object catches the meteorite.'

This tiny object then 'flies through it - and the meteorite explodes and falls.

'Such a number of videos, made from different angles makes us believe that something blew up the meteorite...' - Komanev stressed. 

To the untrained eye, it is hard to tell what was happening here, but Komanev suggests that prior to the the meteorite's fall there was an upsurge in UFO sightings.

His 'second supporting argument' is that 'since 2012 we have registered an increase of UFO activity. We began to receive more testimonies of eyewitnesses.'

He explained: 'Usually we get two messages about UFO per month. Since the beginning of February we received four messages.'

He claimed that 'we have two videos on which we can clearly see a UFO' shortly before the meteorite.

Komanev showed  two videos at a press conference in Yekaterinburg. One of videos was made in Chabry village, Sverdlovsk region. The claim is it shows

 two 'glowing bowls'  seen flying in the sky at night. They are visible, disappear and appear again, it is claimed.

On the second from Chelyabinsk, filmed at 10 am, 'glowing bowls' are shown slowly moving in the sky, they appear and then are lost again.

After the meteorite fall, he claimed he and his colleagues did not receive any messages about cases of UFO in the region.

'No activity at all,' he said. 

Meanwhile, divers in Lake Chebarkul have found craters in the three-metre thick silt where several pieces of the meteorite are believed to have sunk.

Lubov Rudometova, press secretary of Chebarkul administration, said: 'We have a special team of people who are searching for the meteorite's fragments.'

A magnetic examination of the lake's floor is also being conducted.

This was not UFO, not ABM. In2008 Dr. Keshe transfered his MAGRAV technology to Iranian govt. Iranians advanced this tech and last months used this in peaceful way. This was little demo of capabilities. This is capable flying through solid block of ice without leaving hole in this ice. This was capable to fly into volcanoes and after few hours flying out.

That would be so dumb, why would any extra terrestrial entity wait until the rock is in the atmosphere? It still caused ample damage. It would have far easier for extra terrestrials to shoot it down long before it would hit the atmosphere. Anything else would be idiotic to even contemplate.

This was some kind of advanced weapon which detonated on impact. We own the only
Copyright photo of NIBIRU in the world, purported by NASA to be traveling at the speed of light and we believe both objects were under intelligent control.

Joe in California, you did not "eliminate" the impossible by refusing to entertain the possibility it could have been something extraterrestrial in origin.

All you did was deny the possibility which is not the same thing. Sometimes you just have to open your mind and accept you cannot know everything and often if you wait a while things might become clear further down the line. The thing was moving very fast and I believe it was beyond the ability of any Earth based system to have intercepted it. That is just my opinion, but in the absence of more information, at this point I think it is very interesting.

If it was intercepted, a Russian missile would be the most likely scenario! Why would a "UFO" blast this meteor? A missile would not have to travel at 33k MPH to hit it! But a Russian Gazelle ABM reaches 18.64 miles in five (5) seconds, it could easily intercept it. “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

The water within the meteorite became super heated and exploded. If the russians could shoot down meteors wouldn't Vlad be riding a unicorn.

Is their a missile that travels faster than the estimated 33,000 mph that the meteorite was traveling?

UFOs don't exist, right, so we have all sorts of silly ideas such as another piece of meteorite passing through it. A Russian missile would explode and not continue through it, and then out the other side. The explosion would be much more dramatic too. As I said, UFOs dont exist in the minds of those who go through life believing only what the mainstream tells them. Others open www.theyfly.com and read The Pleiadian Mission by Randolph Winters and move ahead. The confused and Govt. debunkers will scream fraud as soon as we mention Billy Meier. You decide, you have free will.

Analysis shows it was a ghost reflection off the windshield. Proof here: http://montalk.net/russian_meteor_large.jpg

This was not a UFO. It was Al Gore's private jet

The object is a smaller piece of meteor that, being smaller, met less air resistance and travelled faster than the large meteor. Depending upon the vantage point, it would appear to be passing through but actually passed behind the larger meteor. Not a UFO, not a shoot-down, just another chunk of space rock.

Very skeptical, if taken by a dash cam—behind glass—there are bound to be all kinds of ghost reflections from such a bright object. I’m with Jeff, much more evidence needed.

It certainly appears that the meteor as 'attacked' by an automatic response of a last defense ABM Russian nuclear missile of the Gazelle class. This is consistent with these videos and the known facts of the Gazelle missile. The of the massive shock wave being a sonic boom is ridiculous.
