Footage of an unidentified object appeared on the network, which was noticed by residents of southern Russia on Wednesday evening, May 22. They are published by the local Telegram channel "Atypical Stavropol".

The footage, shot in the Stavropol Territory, shows an object with a light tail, similar to a comet. He flies down rapidly and disappears behind the house.

Residents reported the discovery of an unidentified object in southern Russia on May 22. Nikolai Demin, head of the astronomical observatory of Gorky Park in Rostov-on-Don, expressed the opinion that the object seen in the sky by residents of the southern regions of Russia is space debris.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Space debris

By space junk refers to all manmade objects and their fragments in space, which is already faulty, not functioning, and will never be able to serve any useful purpose. Currently in low earth orbits up to altitudes of about 2000 km is, according to various estimates, about 220 thousand (300 thousand according to the UN office for outer space Affairs, October 2009) man-made objects weighing up to 5000 tons.
In the case of UFOs, it is possible to expand this list lost cosmonauts things (tools, etc.).

Meteor

Meteor, "shooting star" is a phenomenon that occurs when small meteor bodies (for example, fragments of comets or asteroids) burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. A similar phenomenon of greater intensity (brighter than magnitude -4) it's called a fireball.

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.

Investigation

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

From the news (it says in the Telegram channel of the association of astronomers AstroAlert from Arkhyz):

The culprit of today's sky show has been found! This is most likely STARLINK-2653 (No. 48665 in the general catalog of spacecraft).

On this map, his last flight path is a lower orbit turning from white to green and then into a red line, going through the center of the Sahara Desert, the Mediterranean Sea, Turkey, the Black Sea, Sochi and further over the north of the Caspian Sea.

Previously, the predicted time of its fall was on May 22 at 21h52m ± 2h (Moscow time). It fell 1 hour earlier - this is not surprising, given the maximum solar activity, because the Earth's atmosphere is "inflated" at this time.

His descent from orbit was calculated days earlier.
