Engineers Zorina Irina Mikhailovna and Ershova Marina Veniaminovna write to the Commission on AI:

In 1982, at the end of April, at about 2 a.m., we were walking home from the Leningrad-Kuibyshev train. The train arrives at 0-55 according to the schedule, but it was about 1 hour late. the sky was black, without stars. turning off the station square onto Lunacharsky Street, our attention was attracted by a powerful beam of a greenish searchlight. We stopped right away because the street was very brightly lit and began to carefully examine the cone-shaped beam.

The floodlights on the nine-storey buildings did not give such a bright green light (their light was diffusing). We decided that maybe it was a spotlight shining from a tower crane, but there was no construction anywhere in this area of the city. As we approached our house, the beam lifted off the ground and turned into an elongated cloud. There was no wind outside, but the cloud was moving towards the Volga River at an altitude of about 800 meters, the length of the cloud was about 30 meters. It was also greenish-blue in color, during the movement the cloud constantly swayed, and when it was over the Volga River, it began to change its shape and it had a tail behind it, like a comet.

We felt somehow unpleasant at heart, and even scared, we got the impression that something was looking at us. When we told at work the next day about what we saw at night, no one believed us. And only 3 years later, when we read an article in the Trud newspaper dated 30.01.85 "Exactly at 4.10", we remembered this case and decided to write to you. maybe someone else has seen this phenomenon besides us, and will tell you their details.

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.
