Newspaper "Trud" on 13 July 1974 in the article "the Mysterious light in the ocean" said:

"Not just the sailors and travelers, passing not far from the Kuril Islands, seen in the gloom of night on the horizon suddenly appeared a bright spot. It quickly moved and grew before our eyes. Giant oval is often up to a quarter of a mile in width. From it went up a light post.

"Magic light" worked wonders. The compass needle began to dance. Hair people crackled. Silk flew long sparks. And some subjects somehow glowed...

This phenomenon has already been around for hundreds of years familiar to the people of Japan and the Far East. It is called the "burning circle", "brilliant cloud" Kuril "light". However, scientists until now still can not explain the nature of the mysterious phenomenon.
