Nikolai Alex Popov writes to the Commission on AI.:

I also had to observe one object, but it was quite a long time ago in 1980 in the month of August. I was living in the city of Nurek in Tajikistan at that time.

On one of the mountain slopes I saw a strange clock face, it was visible in the spring months and only in clear weather, from sunrise to lunchtime.

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Halo

Halo usually appears around the Sun or moon, sometimes around other powerful light sources such as street lights. There are many types of halos, but they are mostly caused by ice crystals in Cirrus clouds at a height of 5-10 km in the upper troposphere. The form of the observed halo depends on the shape and arrangement of crystals. Reflected and refracted by the ice crystals, the light often turns into a spectrum, which makes halo look like a rainbow, but a halo in low light has a low chroma, which is associated with the peculiarities of twilight vision.

Mirage

Optical phenomenon in which the air in the result of the refraction of light rays in addition to items in their true position, see their virtual images in the direct, inverted or severely distorted.

Distinguish mirages:

  • lower
  • top
  • side

Inferior Mirage occurs when a large vertical temperature gradient (drop it with the height) over a superheated flat surface, often desert or paved road. Usually this "puddle" on asphalte or sand.
