The sky in Russia's Far East was lit up by a strange object on Sunday morning.

It flew over the city of Blagoveschensk, Russia’s Amur region. But the journey was short-lived. After a few seconds the object exploded in a bright flash leaving a white trail that some social media users compared to the Nike logo.

Locals claim they witnessed a meteorite, but so far there has been no official information about the unusual celestial phenomena.
