The testimony of Moskvitin V.V. (engineer) on the observation of UFOs on May 20, 1978.

On May 20, 1978, in the village of Zhavoronki (Belorusskaya railway), in the evening, before sunset, I observed a bright silver object in the southern part of the sky at an angle of about 70 degrees from the horizon. In angular dimensions, it was similar to a high-flying aircraft, however, it was not an airplane.

The object was not moving. There were no contrails from it.

The sky was clear and cloudless that evening. Going to the cottage after work, I observed this phenomenon for 2-3 minutes, then the object was closed by trees.

Hypotheses

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

Cloud (natural and man-made)

Clouds are the products of condensation of water vapor suspended in the atmosphere, visible in the sky from the surface of the earth. They consist of tiny drops of water and/or ice crystals (called cloud elements).

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.
