Science has come a long way since the days when people thought that the Earth was flat and the sun revolved around us. Sometimes, it can seem as if we’ve come so far that absolutely everything in the universe has been explained. Yet what Roman Tregubov witnessed outside of Novosibirsk, Russia is another story entirely.

The graduate of the Novosibirsk State Technical University caught unprecedented footage of a phenomenon that has baffled scientists for centuries.

That strange object in the sky is believed to be ‘ball lightning’, an atmospheric electrical phenomenon that remains unexplained to this day. What an awe-inspiring sight!
