Bulin V.N. writes to the Commission on AI.:

...

In 1976-1978 he served on Sakhalin. I heard about some kind of glowing ball that was moving from Hokkaido Island to the southern tip of Sakhalin, then at a distance of 50-100 cables from the shore it began to move along the coastline, skirting it. And on the contrary, O. Leanoron went in his direction and exploded there. I do not remember the size of the balloon and at what altitude it flew. I didn't hear it from eyewitnesses.

Distinguish between tethered, Svobodnaya and balloons — powered airships.

Pyrotechnics
