Kareliya, Respublika

At about 20:40 Moscow time, not far from Jupiter, I noticed a bright star, somewhat inferior to it in brilliance. The star was moving towards To the driver; its speed was clearly greater than the speed of the ICS I observed; its glow was uniform all the time, without fluctuations and pulsations. The main feature of the movement is a well-marked oscillation: the star passed in the presence of an oscillation. I constantly compared the movement of the star with this conceivable straight line, which further convinced me of the presence of fairly frequent, but very smooth oscillations.

The path of the star was such that its ascent was always about 6 hours (checked on the map).

When the star disappeared, Menkalnan was completely unexpectedly separated from it, but even more

a bright body that began to move towards the Little Lion at a different angle to the previous trajectory. The trajectory of the new body was also oscillating, but it pulsated rhythmically - sometimes it acquired a brightness of about 3-star magnitude, then it became a faint asterisk of 4+ star magnitude.

However, when the brightness decreased, the body never disappeared: I did not lose sight of it, trying at the same time to observe the first object.

I made sure that there is a strictly right angle in their discrepancies. I soon lost sight of the first object. I think I observed 6-7 rhythmic pulsations of the second object: when I was expecting another flash of brightness, the object disappeared. This is all the more strange because the observation was carried out using eight-fold binoculars. The whole observation lasted about 2 minutes. The area of disappearance

the second object is somewhere on the approach to the Little Lion.

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.


Ordinary satellites, which often look like single, not very bright luminous dots moving smoothly in the night sky, are quite often mistaken for UFOs. After the Starlink satellites (near-Earth satellite systems developed by SpaceX, in order to create a cheap and high-performance satellite Internet communication channel and technical transmitters for receiving and transmitting signals from earth and orbit) were launched, it became possible to observe groups of satellites (up to 60 pieces) flying one after another.
