Incident date: 
Ivanovskaya oblast

On Friday, February 4, everyone who was on the street could see two "northern lights" at once, which lasted 1 hour 02 minutes.

At the ninth hour of the evening, nothing seemed to foretell the "northern lights": a dark sky over several bright constellations. I went into the house, but after five minutes the neighbors called me to watch a wonderful phenomenon of nature.

Yes, there was the "northern lights" above us. First, a white "spot" appeared in the sky, similar to a cloud,

which was moving apart in a strip towards the Volga. This streak faded, then became bright, moving across the dark sky.

After a while, red and slightly blue stripes appeared. It seemed that red and white colors were blurred across the sky, adding more and more other colors that were almost immediately lost sight of.

And the red stripe was getting bigger and bigger, only a thin white shimmering strip remained at the edge.

Watching the play of colors, one might have thought that somewhere in the fog a huge glow of a fire was burning.

And suddenly the sky became normal again, as it always happens. But instead of a colored glow, a white, colorless one appeared. It appeared in three places at once, three huge spots disappeared and reappeared, playing, moving across the dark sky.

I watched this phenomenon of nature and regretted that not everyone could see it. The peoples of the Komi ASSR have a sign: who will see two northern lights at once and make a wish that he will be happy all his life and all his wishes will be fulfilled.

The Aurora (Northern lights)

Glow (luminescence) of the upper layers of the atmospheres of the planets with the magnetosphere due to their interaction with charged particles of the solar wind.

In a very limited area of the top of atmosphere radiance can be caused by low energy charged particles of solar wind entering the polar ionosphere over the North and South polar Caspi. In the Northern hemisphere, the cusp auroras can be observed over Svalbard caribou watch.

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.
