Alexander Borisovich Potekhin (29 years old) writes to the Commission on AI:

At the end of the article "Exactly at 4.10", the Commission on AI asks everyone who saw this to provide details. I can't say such a time, but it was between 17-45 and 18-15. I was returning from kindergarten with my daughter and suddenly saw the setting sun along the horizon, but strangely white, as if fog or a growing cloud as from a fire. I also wondered if an atomic bomb was dropped.

The cloud gradually began to grow, rising above the horizon more and more. When it was in the middle stage of formation, there seemed to be flickering highlights in its middle part and, as it were, a weak ray somehow very cloudy.

The cloud grew larger and larger, and as it increased, fiery flickering highlights formed more and more in its middle part.

It appeared inside like a blur. The spot itself has an irregular zigzag shape with a strange yellow glow inside, and purple and it is still unclear what kind of light in its flickering.

The cloud began to increase even more and the beam turned sharply, as if the table was shining not from above, but from below, feeling like a searchlight from an airfield and the flickering glare began to increase and glow brighter.

I thought it was a trick of light in a strong storm and with glowing spotlights similar to the refraction of light, as if forming a mirage.

But then this feeling passed because the beam became even wider at the top, the play of colors inside became brighter and the cloud began to thin out, dissipate. The cloud covered the entire horizon and even lifting his head it was visible. It is located like an internal bathing pool. The edges were also rounded and it grew very quickly and at the same time the glow inside did not become visible and the ray of light began to thin out, then completely disappeared and the entire dome began to glow like a diverging fog. It became no longer interesting, and my daughter began to freeze and I went home. All this took about 15 minutes or a little less.

At work, I told my friends about it. It turns out that my cousin also observed this very thing. The description is exactly like my story.

We observed it at the same time. They were about 300 meters apart from each other. Simply put, through 2 orders of streets.

And also this phenomenon was seen by an elderly man from our work. He was closer to what was happening by 3.5 kilometers. He lives in the village of Loginovo. The time also coincides, but he told us in general terms. Very similar.

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.
