Yu.P. Ermolenko writes to the AIA Commission:

September 7, 1976, Arkhangelsk

On this day in the morning I was in the Jurassic expedition, located on 38 Vinogradov Street. I went to the laboratory for 2 such to mineralogist V. Sobolev. We had a dispute about the genesis of Timan, proving to him that this was part of an ancient platform and, commenting on this with his arguments, suddenly "someone" lifted me to the moon and, as if from the moon, I was having this conversation. Before that, I felt some kind of click in the cerebral cortex. I had perspiration on my forehead and weakness. This condition lasted no more than 5 minutes. Then I went to my "cameralka" - house No. 222 on Lomonosov Street. But I did not walk, but as if "someone" was urging me on. I felt that "someone" was leading me. I was

in an excited state.

Arriving at his office, he took off his raincoat and sat down at his desk. As soon as I sat down at the table, I felt a terrible blow to the head and a clear voice in the purest Russian language:

"Attention! A signal from space!"

It was as if an unknown force picked me up from behind the table and I ran outside through the office, along the corridor, up the steps to the fence of the house.

At the very road, it was as if "someone" stopped me and a dump truck swept by at high speed a meter away from me. If I had taken two more steps, I would have been under the wheels of a car.

During this time (3 sec.) It was as if "someone" was passing a television signal through me. This can be compared to setting up a color TV, when frames are flashing very often.

After standing by the road for a while, I returned to the house. I felt bad, I felt weak, my legs were "not walking".

I went into the next room and when I opened the door, the senior geologist of the Chaikin party, V.F. Chertov, saw me and said, "What's wrong with you, Yuri Pavlovich?!" I was pale, according to him, he put me to bed and covered me with a sheepskin coat. At that time, the clock showed 11-40. I was terribly sleepy, but I heard it again:

"Don't sleep, otherwise you'll fall into a lethargic sleep!" 

 I was shaking all over like I had a fever. They gave me tea to drink and I lay in bed for half an hour and returned to my office. I felt that "Someone" was looking through my eyes at the world around me, and since then I have been at the mercy of various "commands" coming from somewhere (?)

About 15 o'clock I went home. The condition was extremely agitated. When I arrived at the tram stop on Komsomolskaya Street, I heard "Look!" again. I saw in the rays of the sun a large cone-shaped object flying at great speed. It was a moment. At that time, the tram came up. None of the people present at the bus stop even paid attention to this object.

The object was flying at a high altitude, much higher than modern aircraft fly. I got on the tram and took hold of the metal handrail. It was like a strong electric shock hit me, although the people standing next to me were standing as they usually do in trams.

Having reached the east. The Red forge (factory), I went further home on foot. All this time I was at the mercy of commands: "Or!", "Stop!", "Look right, left, etc."

When I got home, I undressed and began to clean up the apartment before my wife came home from work.

Entering a small room, I saw a spherical yellowish object with a diameter of no more than 15-20 cm floating (or rather floating) around the room. I felt uneasy. This object rose up to my head and, as it were, entered me through my head. I had a terrible headache and I could physically feel something moving in my head. Then I had a terrible heat in the back of my head (it can be compared to applying a hot iron to my hand). I ran to the bathroom and began to wash my hair with cold water. So I've done these procedures several times. Gradually the fever subsided, but I was in a very excited state. I heard commands in pure Russian again: "Calm down, calm down!".

Soon my wife came home from work. I cooked dinner, but my excited state alerted her and she called an ambulance. They put me to bed after giving me 3 injections. I fell asleep. For the next 2 days (September 8th and 9th), I lay in bed and all this time I saw many different pictures shown as if on a color TV, but it was all in my head. The paintings were "scrolled" a wide variety... I especially remember the picture of the formation of our planet, its life, and so on... Our little dog, Nora, lay at my feet all these days, wouldn't let anyone come to me and barked hard at everyone, including my wife. She hasn't eaten anything these 2 days.

After spending 2 days in bed, I came to my senses, my wife and I had breakfast and went with her (at her request) to a neurologist. After examining me, he found that I was quite a normal and healthy person...

Next, I would like to tell you about the visions I experienced.

1. My eyes suddenly hurt a lot. Such an impression, or rather a feeling, that the eyeballs will "pop out" from the sockets. I pressed them hard with my hands. As a result, blackish abrasions formed under the eyes. For 3 days, I saw my feet as if from the 10th floor, as if I saw through inverted binoculars, and I perceived everything as if through an inverted cone and all my attention was focused only on those objects that my gaze was directed at. I didn't see anything else.

Gradually, my normal three-dimensional perception of the world around me returned.

While in the room, I heard again: "Attention! Now we will show you what time is!" Gradually, all objects began to disappear from my field of vision, I could not see my hands, my feet, or my nose. It was as if I had disappeared into Space and saw white small spherical particles flying around.

It lasted no more than 10 minutes. Then, gradually, the vision of the objects around me began to return to me, I saw and felt my legs and arms.
