Alien over stadium

A woman from Kirov shared a video of an supposed extra terrestrial life form over a World Cup venue, where England will play Panama on June 24.

The woman posted the video with the caption: ''What the hell was that? Doesn't look like anything I've previously seen''

The video shows a rocket that morphs into the shape of a stingray, leaving a trail of bright light over the stadium.

While onlookers are convinced this is proof of alien existence, the amazing footage has been explained by Russian space officials.

The eerie light show coincided with a rocket launch from Plesetsk cosmodrome in the country's sub-Arctic Arkhangelsk region.
