A bright daylight fireball was recorded over Western Siberia during late afternoon hours of August 4, 2018 (local time). The event lasted up to 20 seconds.

The event was recorded from several towns, including Yugansk and Surgut, and reported that it landed in a remote area.

According to RT, the emergencies ministry said it’s unaware of whatever dazzled the locals.

Some suggested it was a piece of a rocket burning up the atmosphere due to its entry angle and long-lasting nature.

There were no planned re-entries for August 4.
