RECORDING OF A CONVERSATION WITH Voronova Tatyana Borisovna, a student of Ivanovo University (4th year, mathematics).

In the summer, he works at a pioneer camp, constantly lives in Ivanovo.

It was on the night of July 16 to July 17, 1982. In the evening we decided to go for a walk. There were four of us: Volodya, me, Olga and Vasya - we all work in the summer at the pioneer camp in Lomakh.

We went through the forest. It was already dark in the forest. We decided to sit down. We had a guitar and a radio that we didn't turn on. Suddenly, unexpectedly for us, we saw something glowing flying across the sky.

There was no noise. There was no tail behind the object. And Olga said that she saw the tail at the beginning.

The object was flying calmly, its trajectory was not upward (which struck me), but in the form of a parabola and the object was heading towards the forest. My eyesight is not 100%, I am short-sighted, I saw an object in the form of a ball. Its color was like the dial on a watch - phosphorous, unusual. The color is inanimate.

The object was flying from south to St.

This flight had a very strong effect on me. I am an emotional person - as soon as I saw it, I immediately trembled, I was in a stressful state, nervous.

The object appeared unexpectedly and flew along a parabola, went behind the forest. The object flew by calmly, as it sailed by, did not stop.

It was about 24 hours, well, maybe give or take 10-15 minutes.

My friends living in Ivanovo saw the same phenomenon in the city, at the same time.

They live at 70 Velizhskaya Street. Their surnames are Stradins Dmitry and Andrey. The object was larger than a tennis ball at arm's length. The object was walking low over the forest, the surroundings were not illuminated. The entire flight took about seven to eight seconds. I've never seen anything like it before. At the time of observation, we were all sober, we didn't drink anything.

At the time of observation, we heard the noise of an airplane. The airport is not far from us. Volodya said that he was probably watching forest fires.

RECORDING OF A CONVERSATION with Olga Vitalievna Abramova, senior pioneer leader of the Gaidar pioneer camp.

On July 16, 1982, at about 12 a.m., we went for a walk in the forest. We wanted to make a fire and sit. I went, Tanya, Vasya and Volodya.

We went through the forest to a clearing, we wanted to sit on a bench. Suddenly I see something flying over the forest. The object is phosphorous in color, greenish. At first it had a long tail. When he got closer to us, he was already without a tail.

It seemed to me that the object was changing colors, but I remembered the greenish-phosphorous one. Without a sound, he quickly passed over the forest and disappeared behind the trees. There was no sound, we could still hear the plane buzzing somewhere.

I didn't feel any excitement. Flew by and flew by... The ball was bigger than an orange at arm's length, but smaller than a soccer ball.

RECORDING OF A CONVERSATION with BULENOK Vladimir Sergeevich, head of the Regional Club-laboratory of film enthusiasts.

On the evening of July 16, 1982, the girls, Tanya and Olga, me and Vasya went for a walk in the forest. It was after midnight, 10-15 minutes after midnight.

When they came to a clearing through the forest, Olga shouted: "Eh!" We all saw a glowing ball flying. He flew in a northwesterly direction and disappeared behind the forest.

I flew without any noise. An An-2 aircraft could be heard humming to the side.

I got the impression that there was a core inside the ball, about the size of a metal ruble on an outstretched arm. There was a shell around him. The color of the ball was bluish. The core was slightly flattened from the poles, and there was a halo around it.

When the object passed by us, its color changed, it began to resemble the color of a green flare, and when it went towards the forest it became a cold, dead phosphorous color. Tatiana was scared. Olga was calm. Then Volodya came up to us (a locksmith from the Regional Committee hotel, it is located next to us), said that he also saw a flying object.

My condition reminded me of when the boss is called to the carpet.

Last year, I also worked at the camp in the summer and dreamed of seeing UFOs, and now I saw it myself, with my own eyes. It's a beautiful sight!

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.

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.
