Russian City of Kolomna is Becoming a UFO Magnet

A fleet of UFOs was seen and recorded by multiple witnesses this week over the city of Kolomna, Russia, where just a year ago another multiple UFO sighting occurred. What is attracting UFOs to Kolomna?

According to Russian news sources, on March 22 at 19:55, multiple witnesses in Kolomna reported seeing what some described as a flotilla of UFOs flying over the city. The witnesses believed these lights were from something other than planes, drones or balloons. (These accounts were translated using Google which explains the grammar and misspellings):

The objects move in different directions and sometimes many of these ball lands in the sky, remain virtually motionless, or remain stationary when the other objects begin to move. This behavior discards any hypothesis that we can deal with objects or conventional aircraft, but seems to indicate that, on the contrary, the balls of light can be equipped with a sort of own impulse and then intelligent motion.

The witnesses also pointed out that this is not the first time UFOs have visited Kolomna.

We recall that in this area of the Oblast Russian, which is 115 km from Moscow, soo been spotted in the past and recently (in February 2015 and in 2014) many balls of light similar to those avvsitate March 22, 2015.

This video is from a sighting in March 2014.

What is attracting these UFOs to Kolomna? It’s 115 km (71 miles) from Moscow but the lights don’t seem to move like military aircraft. Kolomna is an old Russian city that dates back to at least 1177. It has a history of trade, military conflicts, devastation and religion but none of these would seem to be of interest to alien visitors.

Perhaps it has something to do with Kolomna-born cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, who has made multiple trips to the International Space Station (ISS). In 2006, Tyurin hit a golf ball outside the ISS, most likely longest shot in history. Did he hit a UFO? On another trip in 2013, Tyurin delivered the Sochi Olympic torch to the ISS as part of the torch relay. One Russian report claimed that at least 25 UFOs were seen watching the passing of the torch. Alien speed skating fans? A number of Russian speed skaters were born in Kolomna, including Olga Graf and Yekaterina Lobysheva who competed in the … you guessed it … 2014 Sochi Olympics!

Whatever is attracting the UFOs to Kolomna, at least the residents are remembering to take some videos.
