    Residents of the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk in eastern Siberia noticed an object in the sky, believed to be a meteorite. It flew over the city at about 19:00 (15:00 Moscow time) on Saturday, 6 April.

    "We saw something fast-flowing and burning in the atmosphere with a luminous green trace from the Central District; it literally lasted about five seconds," a local resident told the publication Prospect Mira.

    The object was also spotted from the nearby communities of Kansk, Sosnovoborsk and Zheleznogorsk. Some eyewitnesses reported that they heard claps and even an explosion.
