An astronomer named Lee McClair recorded during the afternoon of Thursday, November 5, a mysterious explosion of great power in the projection of the constellation Cygnus.
McClair’s images were confirmed by other astronomers living in the eastern United States. A kind of cloud with a bright core was visible throughout Texas.
But the big question that experts are asking is: What was it that caused such an explosion?
“Near the Cygnus / MW edge around 8 PM Central Time, we saw a large white / hazy cloud over Lake Amistad in West Texas,” McClair described.
“I knew it was something unusual and when I pulled out my camera to get a very blurry image as it was fading. So unusual but cool. “
The explosion was rapid, which means that the cloud expanded in just a few minutes, reaching up to hundreds of kilometers in diameter.
And this is where the controversy begins. The only object that could create such an explosion would be a spaceship or an asteroid .
In the event that it was the explosion of something larger, such as a star or a planet located somewhere at a great distance, then the growth of a bright cloud of products of the explosion would last for months.
Therefore, there are only two options: an asteroid or a spaceship.
According to some experts, it is unlikely that its origin is an asteroid, since then it could have been destroyed by a collision with another space rock or by some kind of weapon to create a shock wave of such magnitude.
Since there is no weapon on Earth that destroys asteroids, only the option of exploding a spaceship remains.
Astronomers suggested it could be SpaceX’s Falcon 9 two-stage partially reusable launch vehicle .
The last launch of the Falcon 9 was on November 6 and the penultimate in October. Therefore, the Falcon 9 that was launched on November 6 failed to explode on November 5.
Therefore, some experts in the field believe that it could be a military satellite carrying a nuclear weapon that exploded.
But there is also the possibility that it is an alien spacecraft , which could destroy the mysterious object that was heading towards Earth, and could even crash into a space rock.
These are some of the proposed theories, but we are sure that all of these theories will quickly be debunked and offer an explanation that people will readily accept.
What do you think about the mysterious explosion in space? Is it the incident of an alien spaceship? Or do you have another explanation?
