Razumovskaya M.M. (epidemiologist) writes to the Commission on AI:

I don't remember the date of the observation. I'm afraid to make a mistake even in the time of year, but it seems that it was in winter 3-5 years ago, I remember for sure that it was night, but shallow, about 12 o'clock, because the sky was not completely dark.

During night duty at Pulkovo airport, I had to get on a plane and here on the platform, while waiting for the flight I needed, someone from the people standing next to us drew our attention to the sky: against the background of a dark sky in the direction from east to west at an altitude of about 1000 m (approximately at this level, planes enter the landing) strictly in a straight line, as it seemed to us, an ellipsoid-shaped object was moving. Rather, it could be called an airship. Its shape was visible because of the silvery color of the surface, which was colored in different shades from the bright colorful glow of the ship. This glow was fickle, but pulsed. The colors seemed to replace each other, but not in the sequence of colors of the spectrum, but randomly, with green, white, and red lights prevailing.

The volume of the object was felt, and in this the object resembled the fuselage of an airplane without wings and tail in shape and volume. the size seemed to be several (20 times larger than our planes. We could observe this object for 10-20 seconds, as we even managed to exchange impressions.

I have already described the weather conditions during the observation, I will add that the sky was cloudless, there was no wind.

The ship was flying silently (the noise did not reach us). This phenomenon did not have any physical effect on our psyche, i.e. we were all in our right mind and could soberly assess the situation. Most of all, we were struck by the strangeness of this phenomenon, its bright color scheme, in short, it was a very beautiful sight.

I had 203 employees of various airport services with me. I don't remember who exactly.

By the time of observation, I had heard and read about the existence of UFOs.

Balloon/Weather Balloon

The balloon (simplified is a balloon) — an aircraft lighter than air, where the lift force is used enclosed in a sheath gas (or heated air) with a density less than the density of the surrounding air.

Distinguish between tethered, Svobodnaya and balloons — powered airships.

The airship

The aircraft lighter than air, which is a combination of the balloon with the mover (usually a screw with an electric motor or internal combustion engine) and the system of the orientation control (steering control), through which the airship can move in any direction regardless of the direction of air flow.
The shape of the airships are divided into:
