APOSTOLOV Dmitry Aleksnadrovich, geologist, village White Coal (Essentuki)

September 1980, 4 p.m.

It was clear, cloudless, calm weather. At about 4 p.m., the three of us were walking up from Victory Lane to our house. When they turned off the alley, they immediately noticed two large round grayish-light spots with dark spots in the center above their house (small, two-story) at an angle to the horizon of about 30 °. The first impression was that they were hanging directly above the house, in fact, the distance was much greater, but it was impossible to determine which one.

The edges of the circles were slightly darker than the middle, but not very clear.

At first the circles were motionless, then they began to move away to the north, and the dark dots began to decrease in size, and the light spots began to expand, merging into one spot that grew to half the sky and then disappeared. The original size of the spots was the size of half a house each. There was no sound. The observation lasted about a minute, and the spots disappeared after 1.5 - 2 minutes.
