A total of six passenger planes have reported seeing a UFO near the town of Gagarin in western Russia.
One, a pilot on a commercial flight from London to Moscow, claimed to see a 'burning object' followed by a trail of smoke going at high speed over the town, which was named after Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.
Hundreds of miles away in SIberia, six red dots were reportedly seen an hour after the Gagarin 'sightings'.
The Russian Defence Ministry denied any stray missiles or other military objects were in the vicinity of Gagarin at around 7.30pm local time last Thursday.
One eyewitness told The Sun: 'Leaving a supermarket with my daughter, I saw six moving red dots in the sky.
'First, it crossed the sky from west to east, then one flew separately, and the rest at some point stayed almost on the same spot.'
