MSNBC reports that Isreali police lines were jammed by hundreds of witnesses calling to report the UFO. The object’s strange appearance led many to conclude it was an alien spacecraft entering some sort of wormhole or time portal. But according to Universe Today, “The strange sight has been confirmed to be a Russian ballistic missile test of the Topol ICBM from the Kapustin Yar firing range near Astrakhan in southern Russia.” And space analyst Jim Oberg told MSNBC that the Topol’s “third-stage spin is a ‘feature,’ not a malfunction, and may be associated with guidance, or decoy deploy, or enhancing hardness against U.S. boost-phase antimissile weapons.”
