Aliens, extraterrestrial ships and other conspiracy theories were the explanation given by many people to the mysterious ball of lights on Siberia a few days ago. It has given a lot in certain circles, although finally the explanation is much more mundane, although equally disturbing.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Defense of Russia, exactly on the same day that this second Moon of ghostly appearance appeared, the army conducted a new test with a long-range intercontinental missile. The projectile crossed Siberia from west to east to land near the Kamchatka Peninsula, at the eastern end of Russia.
Several experts have already confirmed the relationship between the ball of light and the missile, arguing that the mixture of the gases generated by the combustion ended up filtering the sun’s rays to generate this ball of bluish and translucent aspect. It is a disappointment for the most conspiranoicos, although it is still an event to be feared,
The military escalation in certain areas of the Asian continent continues its course, with increasingly frequent threats from North Korea towards its southern neighbor and towards Japan. The Japanese country also has to see how China extends its influence towards more and more countries, while colonizing some islands in dispute between both countries.
Meanwhile, Russia remains Asia’s main military and nuclear power, although we do not know for how long. China continues to invest more and more money in upgrading and modernizing its army, preparing for a possible confrontation with Japan or India, which in turn maintains a constant cold war with Pakistan, another country that has nuclear weapons.
In this context, a new test of long-range missiles is not reassuring, although it is neither the first nor the last. We will probably see many like this in the short term, even flying over third countries without permission, as happened recently with North Korea and Japan.
