A student of the 8th grade Fedorov A. writes:

If it wasn't for this note, I wouldn't have written it. I don't read the newspaper myself (I don't subscribe). A friend brought me a note. Everyone could see the same thing, but it's better to "clear" information from excess than to have a shortage in it.

About a year ago, I was watching TV late at night. The lights in the room were turned off. Rays of light from a street lamp filtered through the curtains. Suddenly the room became a little brighter. about how a dark room is illuminated by a light bulb from a lantern. This phenomenon lasted for several seconds. I didn't attach any importance to it. Then it happened again a few minutes later. I went out to the balcony out of curiosity. it was also a little brighter outside (or it seemed to me, because there was snow). There were clouds in the sky, they were also glowing. the next day it happened again, but earlier in time. I told my parents. Of course, they said they didn't see anything (which is what I thought). This was repeated several times at different times in the evenings. It even happened that he blinked twice. I thought at the time that it was a street lamp somewhere, but it wasn't a lantern.

This phenomenon lasted from 3 days to one week, I can't remember exactly. At first glance, this may seem ridiculous. Just think, some flashes.

Yes, here's another one. It was a long time ago. I was riding a sled home (my father was driving), when he turned, it suddenly flared up and he quickly moved his head. I looked in that direction too.

An oval-shaped body was flying across the sky. Why did you remember? Yes, because I like to watch something unknown. At first it flew fast, then it sharply reduced the movement.

It, as I remember, shimmered with yellow, red and green colors. Something was burning or dangling behind the body. A few months later, I remembered this phenomenon again. I then thought maybe it was a rocket or a ball lightning. But what surprised me. This is a different change in speed and direction of movement. The body flew straight to the east until it disappeared from view, and even more dimensions. the dimensions were about the same, if you take 1 kopeck and remove half a meter from the eyes. And more. If it were a meteorite, it would not change the speed, and would at least lower the altitude. And the body was flying at a constant speed.

Short circuit

Suddenly you hear a loud Bang and bright Spica. After that may turn off the light in the apartment, as well as to spread the fire.

Meteor, "shooting star" is a phenomenon that occurs when small meteor bodies (for example, fragments of comets or asteroids) burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. A similar phenomenon of greater intensity (brighter than magnitude -4) it's called a fireball.

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft is heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), which uses the airframe's aerodynamic lift to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of the power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy on drag. 

Ball lightning

A rare natural phenomenon, a unified physical theory of the origin and course of which has not been presented to date.

There are about 200 theories explaining the phenomenon, but none of them has received absolute recognition in the academic environment. Since this phenomenon was introduced into the scientific sphere by the English physician and researcher of electrical engineering William Snow Harris in 1843, and a scientist of the French Academy Francois Arago in 1855, many hypotheses were put forward. Here are selectively some of them:
