Putin Volgograd UFO Sighting
On Thursday, February 2, 2023, a "color-changing UFO" was reported by four Russian passenger aircraft near Volgograd, Russia.
At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin was giving a speech in Volgograd that commemorated the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad.
Although details and sources are sparse, the Daily Mail reported that multiple Russian planes reported seeing a UFO that "changed color and height" in the sky. The Daily Mail cited Telegram user Aviatorschina, who claimed that the UFO was first reported at 19:08 Moscow time by S7 Airlines flight S72046, which was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters about 12 minutes southeast of Volgograd.
Shortly after, crews from Aeroflot flight SU1125, S7 flight S73750, and Rossiya flight SU6358 also reported seeing the object.
Laser displays related to the 80th anniversary event are a possible explanation for these sightings.
