V.M. Mankova writes to the Commission on AI.:

I was on vacation in Sochi once. was it April-May 1965 or 1972. In the afternoon, I was walking down the street with the children and noticed that people walking towards me were looking up. And I heard a conversation "Look, two suns!". I looked around. People were already standing in droves. There were really two suns in the sky. Only one is a little redder, not yellow, as it happens in the evening. and it was moving. It seemed that besides flying, it was making some other movements, because it was changing its shape.

At the same time, there was a lot of talk about flying saucers and all the conversations converged on one thing - a saucer, because they did not find an answer in the local press.

And this sun was flying" at the speed of an airplane. After all, when a plane flies in the distance, it can be seen for a long time.

Hypotheses

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

Halo

Halo usually appears around the Sun or moon, sometimes around other powerful light sources such as street lights. There are many types of halos, but they are mostly caused by ice crystals in Cirrus clouds at a height of 5-10 km in the upper troposphere. The form of the observed halo depends on the shape and arrangement of crystals. Reflected and refracted by the ice crystals, the light often turns into a spectrum, which makes halo look like a rainbow, but a halo in low light has a low chroma, which is associated with the peculiarities of twilight vision.

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



A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.
