Eyewitness: Gusev S.V.

Yes, indeed, I witnessed one of the anomalous phenomena, but I don't even remember which month: January or February. We go every weekend, so you can't remember everything, he remembers seeing this phenomenon.

On a frosty, clear morning, I left Deev-Gorodishche, so at 6 o'clock, so. I took the 7 o'clock bus. It was dark. The moon and stars were shining. It was howling quite clearly around, it was howling windlessly.

As usual, I was walking my way alone, right along the path, and not along the river, to the village, in my opinion, I was walking shanikha (higher up the river). As soon as I got down on the ground, I saw a light flash in front, as the headlight of the tractor-10 flashes, I don't see it again.

Well, that's what I decided, a tractor is coming. Then I think there is no road there, and tractors do not go to the village there in winter, everyone is on horseback. I climbed the mountain a little and began to look closely ahead I saw a headlight, a little less than 30 degrees from the ground, directing the beam to the ground.

He was heading first to the west, then it turned out that he was attracted to me, then to the east, because I was facing north. It seems to me, if you look in your hand, you imagined a ball with a diameter of 150 m. The beam below illuminated the ground in order, like a searchlight. I even thought the helicopter was flying, just under the river, or it was getting light. Then he flew east, climbed to a height of about 50 degrees and stood up, the headlights are no longer visible, only the ball and the light radiating from it in different directions, like from a lantern on a frosty winter night. It was even interesting, there was no sound. It seemed to me that he was behind the ancient one, but above the village, probably about 1 km away. A 20 - 15 minute walk, he stood in place for a minute, maybe two, and flew up. At the place where he stood, there was a kind of cloud, it seems, of a green color. Well, this ball resembled a satellite in the sky and moved upwards and then disappeared before our eyes in space at an angle of less than 90 degrees from the earth.

The cloud gradually receded and disappeared completely after 5 minutes • I was very interested in what it was. I wanted to ask someone, but there was no one. Then I met the guys on the river, asked them, but neither of them saw them. After that, a middle-aged man came up and asked, "Have you seen anyone? Well, I immediately told him, but he didn't tell me anything, wrote down his last name and went on.

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.
