Huge Explosion Involving UFO Theories in Tunguska, Siberia

Central Siberia was shook by a big explosion at 7:14 AM on June 30, 1908. People near the area described seeing a fire-ball UFO that was as bright and as hot as the sun. As the ground shook, millions of trees fell to the ground. Many group of scientists already investigated the explosion but the cause of it is still a mystery.

Richter scale was not yet invented that time but it has been estimated that the explosion caused a 5.0 magnitude earthquake. The blast made buildings to shake, windows to break and people to knock off their feet even at approximately 40 miles away from the blast.

The incident happened in a forested and desolate area close to Podkamennaya Tunguska River in Russia. According to the official estimate, the blast was a thousand times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Approximately 80 million trees fell down and the blast created 830 square-mile radial pattern from the center of it. Dust from the blast was all over Europe reflecting a very bright light enough for the people in the ground to read through it.

The cause of the explosion in the remote area was not scientifically investigated until the 1920s because of World War I and the Russian Revolution. The expedition team assumed a falling meteor created the big blast so, they expected to discover a big crater and pieces of the meteorite. However, they found neither of the evidence of falling meteor. Expeditions that followed also never proved that falling meteor created the blast.

One explanation is that a UFO spaceship crash landed the area and caused a huge explosion but left no impact crater. Another UFO theory is that an alien spaceship saved the Earth by destroying the meteor using its laser. Other explanations have ranged from a black hole that touched Earth to scientific tests carried out by Nikola Tesla. The meteor or a comet that entered the atmosphere of Earth and exploded a couple of miles from the ground is the most commonly accepted scientific explanation. However, due to the lack of convincing evidence, the Tunguska Event remains a mystery over a hundred years later.
