Extraordinary green flashes of light have been spotted in the sky above Siberia, baffling experts and residents as they question whether it was a meteor, a missile, or even aliens.  

The spectacle lit up the sky around Lake Baikal in the early evening on Tuesday.  

Initially, people thought the green flash with a tail was a missile launched by Vladimir Putin's military in Orenburg, which 'successfully' hit its target of the Kamchatka peninsula near the Pacific. 

However, it was last discovered that the timing appears wrong as the ICBM RS-18 intercontinental ballistic missile would have crossed this part of Siberia several hours earlier.

This incredible footage shows the moment people spotted the flashes in the sky as they drove home in the early evening.
