Published on Nov 18, 2014Видеоновости РИА "Новый регион" http://urfo.org/ekb/video/
Strange celestial event happened last weekend in the Sverdlovsk region. First, the sky turned red, and then lit up with a bright yellow light. Celestial phenomena have not been able to comment on any of the Sverdlovsk forecasters Hydrometcenter nor representatives Kourovka Observatory. Best phenomenon was seen in the sky over the city Rezhom.
Странное небесное явление произошло в минувшие выходные в Свердловской области. Сначала небо покраснело, а затем озарилось ярким желтым светом. Небесное явление прокомментировать пока не смогли ни синоптики Свердловского Гидрометцентра, ни представители Коуровской обсерватории. Лучше всего явление было видно в небе над городом Режом.

MOST IMPORTANT VIDEO showing explosion from ground and not from meteor!
Вспышка над Свердловской областью | Explosion in the Sverdlovsk region, Russia
Posted to YouTube by IrSCr 6,098 views

Expert opinion-
  Hmmm. I doubt this one is a meteor.
From the video, it appears that the person shooting it was already starting to pay attention well before the peak event. In the video, you can see a pulsating red glow in a stationary position well before it becomes very bright, the latter only happening 18 seconds in the video. The bright peak, of several seconds duration, also seems to be quite stationary. So the event, whatever it was, was already going on for at least 18 seconds, and it does not seem to be moving during that time.
  My guess this is something originating on Earth. To me, it looks like a fire or series of small explosions and subsequent large explosion or flash fire reflecting on a cloud deck. The Russian article (in Google translation) seems to suggest there is a major chemical plant nearby? I wonder if any explosions were heard some tens of seconds after the movie ends.
