While the video recorded is shaky, the sight of a blinding ball of light in the distance is unmistakably clear.
“What is it?” asks a female voice from behind the camera.
“Fireball lightning,” says Roman Tregubov, the man who shot the video.
“Argh it's moving away,” he adds, as the luminous orb seems to glide over a field before disappearing into the woodland opposite.
Roman continues: “This is fireball lightning, it's the first time I see one in my life. It's going to move away.
“[It] is very rare, yet it can appear anywhere at all.
“I was astonished to see fireball lightning of such size - and not just that, but to catch the whole process from the beginning when it appeared until the end.”
Ball lightning, while rare, lasts considerably longer than the familiar split-second flash associated with a normal lightning strike.
While the Novosibirsk State Technical University graduate offered an explanation as to what the phenomenon was, some viewers still aren’t buying it.
