A strange saucer-shaped object has been dug up by miners during excavation work in Siberia.
Found at a depth of 40 meters in the country's Kuznetsk Basin, the artifact is approximately 1.2 meters in diameter and weighs 200kg.

Its discovery has sparked debate and controversy with some suggesting that it could be thousands of years old.

Miner Boris Glazkov, who was the first to come across the object, stated that it had stood out to him due to its strange shape.
"Iíve never seen anything like this object," he said. "It is a real mystery."

Another of the miners working at the site, Arthur Presnyakov, claimed that a second disc had also been found there but that it had broken in to bits when they had attempted to retrieve it.

"We thought we saw something sure, because it broke into pieces, but then when the second one appeared we stopped work and carefully removed it from the bucket," he said.

Well actually this man's guess is as good as anyone's . He said maybe the ancient people that lived in the area might have seen something and made a model of it or perhasp it was used for throwing . Too bad they didn't really try to clean it up abit. Then we could get a better idea of what it might be.

One has to wonder how an object buried in the ground, can resemble an "Unidentified Flying Object" ? I guess it was hovering in the dirt.

What the hell are you guys going on? No where does they claim it is a UFO. They claim it resembles a UFO and is man-made. Who knows maybe some people saw something a long time ago and made a sculpture of it...
