Bay Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Commander of the city of Babolsar, Mazandaran Province's IRGC Mousa Hosseini Nejad has said that a luminous object that appeared in the northern Iranian city's sky on Thursday morning was probably a Soyez spacecraft landing in Kazakhstan.
"Today's incident was related to a flying object whose identity is not clear to us yet. We suspect that it belonged to Kazakh landing," he stated.
The object was seen in Rudsar, Tonekabon, Mahmoudabad, Babolsar, Larim, and Amir Abad, Fars news agency reported March 13.
"We were informed that these days astronauts were going to return to earth from the International Space Station. We believe that whatever it was, it had to do with this space station and its facilities," Hosseini Nejad added
The military commander rejected the possibility of any drone, spy aircraft, or ballistic missile having appeared around the Caspian Sea.
We acquired status from Dasht-e Naz, Imam Khomeini, and Mehrabad airports, which confirmed that no domestic or international flights have been routed around the Caspian Sea, he noted.
Also, Mazandaran Province's Airports Public Relations Director Reza Ahmadi dismissed reports about a possible aircraft explosion that people reported they thought they saw.
The official further said that everything was calm in the area and that no aircraft had been observed at the area's air traffic control towers.
