What Has Russia Spotted in Earth's Upper Atmosphere? Unexplained 'Explosions of Light'

Despite the occurrence of several powerful bursts, Russian scientists say there were no signs of storms in the area, according to Sputnik. ‘It looks like we have encountered new physical phenomena. We do not yet know their physical nature.’
