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 across Texas.
But the big question experts are asking is: what caused this explosion?
“Near the Cygnus/MW rim at around 8:00 pm CET, we saw a large white cloud/nebula 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, meaning the cloud expanded in just a few minutes, reaching 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 case of the explosion of something larger, such as a star or a planet located somewhere a great distance away, the growth of a bright cloud of products from the explosion would last for months.
So there are only two options: an asteroid or a spaceship.
According to some experts, its origin is unlikely to be an asteroid, as it could have been destroyed by a collision with another space rock or by some kind of weapon to create a shock wave of this magnitude.
Since there is no weapon on Earth that destroys asteroids, there is only the option of blowing up a spaceship.
Astronomers have suggested it could be SpaceX’s Falcon 9 partially reusable launch vehicle.
The last Falcon 9 launch was on November 6th and the penultimate launch in October. So the Falcon 9 that launched on November 6th didn’t explode on November 5th.
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 a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ spacecraft, which could destroy the mysterious object heading towards Earth, and could even crash into a space rock.
These are some of the theories proposed, but we are sure that all these theories will be quickly debunked and will offer an explanation that people will readily accept.
What do you think of the mysterious explosion in space? Is the incident of a spaceship a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳? Or do you have another explanation?
