Russian and Iran: The Russian and Iranian authorities have agreed to start a joint study of UFOs after weird lights were spotted over Iran.

This comes in the wake of a skywatching mania that struck Iran amid state-media reports of sightings of flying objects near Iranís nuclear installations.

The Resalat news agency reported shining objects in the sky near Natanz, where Iran's uranium-enrichment plant is situated. One of those objects is said to have exploded, prompting panic in the region.

Tehran's air force was ordered to shoot down any unknown or suspicious flying objects in its airspace, amid security concerns for its nuclear plants.

Flights of unknown objects in the country's airspace have increased in recent weeks... [they] have been seen over Bushehr and Isfahan provinces, the Resalat daily reported. Nuclear facilities are located in both provinces.
