Volodya Grinberg writes to the Commission on AI:

On April 4, 1978, at 20-30 in Fryazino in the east, as it seemed to me over a 12-storey house, I saw a fiery hemisphere, if you can call it that. Which is glowing.

It looks very much like a flame. When I wanted to call my family, he somehow rose very smoothly and at the same time quickly and disappeared. The sky was cloudless. In total, the balloon was above the ground for about 1 minute, and rose almost instantly.

The calculated angular dimensions, according to an eyewitness, are equal to 23 seconds.

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.
