What Was Mysterious Cloud That Turned Day Into Night in Eastern Russia?

— “At first it looked like it was a strong thunderstorm coming. The air went dark, and got darker and darker, but this time unlike anything else we have seen before the darkness had a rich yellow undertone.” – Local town official in Nizhne-Bytantaisky

— “Messages are going around about a light flash registered by the U. S. satellites, followed by increase of radioactive level and unusual activity of the military.” – Local resident in Eveno-Bytantaisky

 

July 24, 2018  Yakutia, Eastern Russia – On Friday, July 20, 2018, at 11:30 AM local time and lasting for about three hours, a massive cloud of unknown substance reported as “bigger than the British Isles” turned day to pitch black darkness for three hours. The region is so far north that normally in July there is 24-hour-bright light. A local town official in Nizhne-Bytantaisky told The Siberian Times, “At first it looked like it was a strong thunderstorm coming. The air went dark, and got darker and darker, but this time unlike anything else we have seen before the darkness had a rich yellow undertone.”

Some people began coughing and found it hard to breathe. Was it a secret Russian weapons test? Did a large meteorite explode in the atmosphere? Was a toxic fire burning somewhere? Something unidentified blocked sunlight long enough for Arctic temperatures in almost all districts of the Yakutia region of far Eastern Russia to drop as darkness fell in the middle of the day.

Yakutia, also known as the Republic of Sakha, covers more than 3 million square kilometers in the Russian Far East on the East Siberian Sea with the Arctic Ocean to the north. The republic is 18% of the Russian Federation, roughly the size of India, but with a Rhode Island-size population. The republic’s capital is Yakutsk. Yakutia is named after the Yakut (Sakha) people, who are remotely related to Turks. Some people are remnants of the ancient religion, Tengriism — shamanic sun-worship.
