From a letter to the Commission on:

1978, August. It was at night in the upper reaches of the Neva River in August. From about 2 to 5 o'clock. Above the shore at an altitude of 100-150 meters, a white ball was moving parallel to the Neva (the speed was low). There was a trail behind the ball (of a smoky greenish hue). As it got light, the ball disappeared, and a cloud formed that looked like a rider with an outstretched arm. By the morning of 5-6 hours, the cloud, losing its shape, rose high and merging with the clouds turned into thick clouds.
