  1. From article:
    “The satellite, named after scientist Mikhail Lomonosov, launched in 2016 and is integrated with the Kanopus-B spacecraft. Its goal is to study high-energy cosmic rays, including gamma rays, magnetospheric particles, and transient light phenomena in the upper atmosphere.”

    It sounds like they could be picking-up the results of a metallic meteor striking Earth’s atmosphere. A ‘rubble’ meteor would break-up with little high-energy phenomena. However, a (sizable) metallic meteor would penetrate deep into the atmosphere before ablating-away. This might lead to high-energy phenomena. USAF released spy-sat data showing kiloton and megaton ‘bursts’ in our atmosphere from meteors. This Lomonosov data might be related…

    Looks like some kind of natural phenomenon.
    That being said, many natural occurrences in nature have their requisite causes & effects. These are studied and; sometimes, become so well understood, that they can studied on the laboratory desk/bench itself.
    So, could this phenomenon now be recreated in toto?
