| Russia tested a new, advanced intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to the U.S.
… After Tuesday’s launch, however, it was local Russians who appeared to be most shaken. Some residents in southern Russia took to social media to post pictures of the curious, spiral-like trail left behind by the missile.
“I have a tape of some kind f**king thing in the sky, is this the end of the world? Ahhhhhh!,” one user wrote.
“Queue X-Files theme,” another wrote, wondering if it could have anything to do with Russia’s operations against the Islamic State group (ISIS) in Syria.
“I arrived in this city, and here comes a UFO to take me back to Mordovia,” a third tweet read.
