Age 37

Place of work FTINT of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR, specialty - physicist, work experience of 15 years. Member of the Kharkiv section "Study of anomalous phenomena".

The observation point is the base camp under the wall of the Zamin Karf Massif at an altitude of 2,900 m.

The date of observation is 08/14/80, 22-00 (immediately after the setting of the new moon), i.e. 2 years ago.

The observation was made from a fixed point. At the time of observation, the top of the Regi Colon was in the field of view at a distance of 3 km. The height in the Region is 4050 m.

The sky was cloudless, there was no wind. The stars and the moon were observed. No aircraft were observed at the time of observation. No technical means were used for surveillance (it made no sense). There are no materials for registering the phenomenon.

At the time of observation, they were resting on the site. Attention was attracted by the phenomenon itself (glow, halo above or behind the peak). There were 10 witnesses, the climbers were members of the expedition, all with higher education.

First, there was a glow on the contour of the vertex. It was one education. At the initial moment, there was a clear edge of the glow. It was a semi-transparent regular circle with no volume.

Then there was an increase in its diameter, a decrease in brightness until it completely disappeared. The apparent size ranged from the width of the thumb of an outstretched hand to 1/2 of the celestial sphere.

The glow lasted for half an hour, it was uniform (self-illumination).

At the initial moment, the brightness was less than the brightness of the stars, the color was white, did not change.

The glow did not illuminate the surrounding area. The direction of CVD surveillance

The center of the glow rose to 45 degrees.


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

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.

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.
