Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
12.07.1978 23:17
Leningradskaya oblast

July 12, 1978, at 23 h.17 min., Moscow. time over the northern territory of the USSR drew attention to the star -X, which "hung" over the handle of the bucket, in a foggy or polluted environment.

Further, the halo around the X-star began to increase rapidly in volume, and the x-star began to move along the second star of the bucket handle, at the same time the gas or dust tail of the X-star became as if

twisting into a galactic spiral.

Star-X, approaching the second star of the bucket or deep into the universe, began to decrease in size.

And at 23 h.25 min., Moscow. the time of the star is gone.

The dust-gas tail of the spiral was still moving for some time, and then it was gone. I have seen a starfall before - there is no star, but this one fell from 7 to 10 minutes.

If you are interested in "this"? - and for me very much. I would like to know what "it" was?

Sincerely yours, Sergey Golikov, 40 years old

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.
