Petrova E.I. writes to the Commission on the:

I read the article by correspondent V. Vostrukhin "Exactly at 4. 10 ..." in the newspaper "Trud" from 30/I-85g. And I decided to write to you, because I myself observed a similar phenomenon in 1971 or I972g. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly.

I was vacationing in the summer in a remote village of the Vologda region. As I remember now, it was a sultry summer day. In the sky, I was attracted by an object glittering in the sun. To my surprise, I clearly saw an object of white metal, very similar to aluminum, shaped like a cone, only with the top cut off. Like a flower pot. It was so unreal that I started watching. I noticed that standing in one place, he slowly rotated turning from a cone into a circle and back. It was very well illuminated by the sun. At what height he was, I can't say for sure. It seemed to me lower than the flight of a jet plane. The shape of the object was too clearly visible.

Then I got tired of watching and only in the evening before sunset I noticed a flicker in the cloud. This was also very surprising. In the middle of summer, and even in the Vologda region. northern lights?! (Although I've never seen a glow) Then something quite unusual happened. When we left the village club at about 1 o'clock or 2 o'clock in the morning, there was a bright light all around. (Although the nights are very dark there) It seems that the village and

its limits are illuminated by a powerful searchlight. It would be almost impossible to determine where the light was coming from (the illumination radius is too large) if I hadn't assumed that mysterious object. The lighting came from that side, but only a little lower.

I remember for some reason an unpleasant feeling, as if someone is looking at you directly in the eyes. But I may have accidentally remembered it. The lighting was quite bright. Somewhat brighter than the brightest moonlight. And besides, it was a ray. It was still visible, because I'm overly fantasizing.

I remember those feelings well. All this is so well remembered, because it is such an unusual phenomenon. When I returned to Leningrad, no one believed me, or they said it was some kind of test. Yes, I myself thought that it was too unreal all this. And they didn't write anything about it anywhere. That's why I didn't write anywhere. And now, after reading the article and comparing it with those observations, I was convinced of the unusual phenomenon. Maybe my observation will bring some benefit.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

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.
