Alexander Shaleev writes to the commission on AI:

A soldier of the conscript service of the border troops is writing to you. I recently read an article in the newspaper "Exactly at 4.10." I am also a resident of Minsk and therefore it was twice as interesting to me. As soon as I read the lines there about the "yellow spot" and the ray falling from it, I already guessed about it. what will be discussed. This was later confirmed. The fact is that I saw a similar phenomenon on a winter morning in early 1982. I just can't tell you what month it is.

At that time, I was still studying at a vocational school, in the Karelian ASSR of the village of Pindushi, Medvezhegorsky district. In the morning, I and many of my comrades sat down for breakfast in the dining room. The time is between 7-00 and 8-00 in the morning. It was still dark. There was nothing unusual in the sky either. But asking for a casual glance, I saw somewhere high up a small speck of silvery color. A scattering ray of white light emanated from it. not very bright, but clearly visible to the naked eye. I even stopped in surprise. And my friends have already noticed it and watched it with me. It was as if this speck was rising up. Suddenly, the beam coming from there began to take the shape of a dome and became brighter. Now it looked like fog or a glowing light. As soon as this started happening, the spot "went out." This dome was formed in some 3-5 seconds. At its base, a ring of the same "fog" formed around the entire circumference. A green cloud in the form of a petal hung from the center of this ring (as in the case of an airplane!) This painting occupied a huge part of the sky. This happened for about 10 minutes.

Gradually, both the "mist" and the "petal" began to spread across the sky and fade. we decided that there would be nothing more interesting and left for breakfast. They only talked about what they saw, but no one could explain anything in essence. I and many others, frankly, think that this is possibly a so-called UFO. But somehow I couldn't believe that I could see it. After about 20 minutes, we went outside again. There were still traces of "mist" and "petal" in the sky. It was already getting light. In various frequent horizons, ragged waves of red (not pink) were visible (I don't know how to put it) like at dawn. It could have been mistaken for dawn. but he was already very unusual. Now I understand that it was like that. When I arrived at the hostel, I sketched everything I saw and I still have these drawings at home. I drew it again from memory (and I remember it well) and am also sending it to you. Everything I wrote about was seen by several dozen people.

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.
